Since posting my questions here I have learned that the iPad Air is coated with an outer coating called oleophobic. I don't know just how far back Apple has been using this coating. My initial concern was not protecting the screen from abuse or accidents but for normal everyday use while touching the screen with fingers and fingernails over time.

The glass film protectors will themselves get scratched and I have read that they most likely will need to be replaced every year. Now that I have learned a little more about this deal I have decided to not get a film type screen protector. I did get a good quality tablet case and will get a good cleaning cloth since cleaning the screen with most liquids are not good for this coating that Apple puts on the glass.

Thanks all...........

i clean mine by breathing on it and wiping it with my shirt..whatever i'm wearing(sweaters, poly dress shirts, cotton tees...). zero ill-effects.

i think if you get a top-tier manufacturer device, you should have very little to worry about. just don't bleach it or spray with caustic cleaners. water and a cloth will get you by perfectly fine.
