iPhone 3G S – Newer, Faster & Packs Oleophobic Coating – Say What???

iPhoneHowTo

Given this post ‘s title, you might be asking WTF is Oleophobic Coating.  I know I was for sure when one of our observant readers “ Everette “ spotted details on it within Apple ‘s ‘How To ‘ pages for the new iPhone 3G S model and used our Contact form to tell me about it. Apparently, oleophobic means oil-resistant, or thereabouts “ which sounds like an awfully good thing for our precious iPhone screens.

Here ‘s more detail from the page on Cleaning iPhone:

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.

Thanks to Everette for the great find, and for helping me learn a new word today. 🙂
