    We are getting some iPad Pro 10.5 in work, the 2017 version not the current one.

    Looking at screen protectors from Hama as that is what we have access to, they do either a glass one or a normal protective film

    Any pros and cons on them? How does it effect the pencil? I have always had glass ones on my iphone and on my switch.

    Glass will always feel closer to the actual screen, provide more protection but will add more thickness and cost. Shouldn't affect the pencil at all.
    If you use your Apple pencil for anything art related have a look at Paperlike screen protectors. I'd always opt for glass myself.

    Thanks for the reply, ended up ordering glass ones, as will be mostly note taking, diagrams that sort of thing.

    Enjoying it so far, mildly annoyed you can not arrange the home screens via iTunes any more though

    Glass for me, much easier to fit, better protection and feel, last longer without peeling at the edges.

    Wow I completely forgot that you used to be able to do that! Remember doing that on the old iPod Touch.
