    Shading your iPhone screen?

    Is there any solution known to help shading the IP screen in bright light?

    Getting away from the bright light

    I recall people using a screen protector film here. Some of the higher quality one's help with sun glares.

    I got mine at the Apple store, no idea what brand/model though.

    I hate to say it, Uwe, but I'm in the Ronan Camp -- get out of the sun.

    Failing that advice, you can choose matte-finish or mirror-finish screen protectors which will help a little.

    I personally use the totally transparent Steinheil Ultra Oleophobic (sounds like someone's allergic to margarine -- and, indeed, I just now see that below that it says "Oil Resistant Coating"). It's tough and brilliant and I love it and it would only serve to aggravate your problem.

    I think there are special films that prevent people from seeing your screen from the side -- perhaps that might work with regards to the sun.

    As you can see, I'm reduced to speculation here. Good luck.
