How to remove iphone camera lens protector

Hi guys, I need some help with this. My Girlfriend’s camera protector has been stuck for weeks, and we want to replace it with a full-coverage protector.

We have been trying to remove it, but it is stuck. My girlfriend often drops his phone, so we try to be careful. We have tried using a blow dryer, glue stick, and a suction cup, but nothing has worked.

Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!


Make use of a floss pick. The handle offers leverage to help take it off, and the floss is thin enough to get beneath it.

hey, don’t get trapped into thinking you need a camera lens protector. I don’t use one myself—I just rely on a good case and screen protector. I’ve heard that lens protectors can be really hard to remove.

To remove an iPhone camera protector lens is simple , you can use your fingernail or a too, If it is a Snap-On design, you can use your fingernail to gently pry up the corner of the protective cover and If the cover is too tight, you can again also use a plastic pry bar which is usually used for a cell phone repair basically instead of your fingernail to prevent scratching the device (iPhone).

It’s simple:

  1. Use a hair dryer, heat gun, or heating pad to loosen the lens protector.
  2. Then, use a small knife to cut it up.

Alternatively, you can heat the adhesive with a hair dryer and use a spudger to pull the lens protector off. I used to use them too but decided to remove mine this way.
