iPhone 3G S Gets Oleophobic Coating on Screen

Posted June 9, 2009 at 2:03pm by iClarified
An Apple How To document reveals that the new iPhone 3G S will have an oleophobic coating on the screen.

To clean iPhone, unplug all cables and turn off iPhone (press and hold the Sleep/ Wake button, then slide the onscreen slider). Then use a soft, slightly damp, lint-free cloth. Avoid getting moisture in openings. Don’t use window cleaners, household cleaners, aerosol sprays, solvents, alcohol, ammonia, or abrasives to clean iPhone. If your iPhone has an oleophobic coating on the screen (iPhone 3G S only), simply wipe your iPhone’s screen with a soft, lint-free cloth to remove oil left by your hands and face.

For those of you wondering, oleophobic means: having or relating to a lack of strong affinity for oils.

Good Deal! Have been Oleophobic too, ever since they started pulling that same stunt with potato chips.
