SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ZAGG®, the global leader in accessories and technologies that empower mobile lifestyles, today announced XTR3 screen protection and protective cases infused with Graphene, one of the strongest materials on earth.1 The new screen protectors and cases are available for iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max. The product lineup includes the following:
Glass XTR3 ($59.99), made with Hexiom impact technology, is ZAGG InvisibleShield’s most technologically advanced screen protector and is 10X stronger than traditional glass screen protection.2 It also helps filter high energy visible (HEV) blue light, a visible color in the light spectrum. Concerns about digital blue light center around how close we are to our screens, how long we use our devices, and what that cumulative effect can do to us:
- Screen time is over 13+ hours per day for adults in the US.3
- On average, children ages 8-12 in the US spend 4-6 hours a day watching or using screens.4
- On average, teens in the US spend up to 9 hours watching or using screens.4

Blue light has been shown to suppress melatonin, a hormone that promotes feelings of sleepiness. Too much blue light exposure from viewing screens at night may impact our circadian rhythms, and cause trouble sleeping, waking during the night, and reduced alertness the next day.5 At ZAGG, “Protect Better” means we go beyond just scratch and shatter protection for your screen.
Glass XTR3 features a few key improvements:
- Highest Level of Blue Light Filtration: With new-to-world RPF60 technology from Eyesafe, Glass XTR3 is the world’s strongest screen protector that filters blue light, and it won’t change the colors on your screen—meaning no yellow tint.
- Recycled Glass Content: Glass XTR3 is made with up to 30% post-consumer recycled glass, its installation tray is made from 100% recycled content, and its packaging is 100% recyclable.6
- FSC Certification: Glass XTR3’s packaging has been certified by FSC, an organization working to protect healthy forests.
Like earlier versions of the product, Glass XTR3 includes anti-reflective technology that enhances color depth and vibrancy on your smartphone screen, an ultra-touch sensitive surface, and a smooth nano-coating that reduces friction as you move your finger across the screen. Glass XTR3 also includes an anti-dust adhesive that installs smoothly over most dust, so it disappears on your screen. Our EZ Apply® installation system includes an installation tray that makes the process easy and accurate.
Glass XTR3 is also available for iPad and Apple Watch Ultra.
ZAGG InvisibleShield will also offer its core lineup of screen protectors for iPhone 15, including Glass Elite ($39.99), Glass Elite Anti-Glare ($44.99), Glass Elite VisionGuard® ($49.99), Glass Elite Privacy ($44.99), and Glass Elite Privacy 360 ($59.99). The entire ZAGG InvisibleShield lineup for iPhone 15, iPad, and Apple Watch Ultra also features an anti-microbial treatment that protects your screen protector by guarding against degradation from microorganisms.7
Each ZAGG InvisibleShield screen protector in the lineup for iPhone 15 has also received a Green Product Mark by TÜV Rheinland, an international independent third-party testing and certification organization, after a careful analysis of the company’s commitment to sustainable product manufacturing and packaging.
At ZAGG, we seek cutting-edge materials that provide maximum protection in a slim form factor. That’s why this year, for the first time, all ZAGG cases will contain the revolutionary material Graphene, which is harder than a diamond, yet more elastic than rubber, and up to 200x stronger than steel.1
Trusted by innovators and leaders in the fields of aerospace, aviation, professional sports, and more, Graphene is one of the strongest materials on earth.1 It’s incredibly thin, can withstand tremendous force, and dissipate heat. Graphene has the potential to revolutionize our way of life. And we’re starting with your phone.
