Touchscreen phones are of course prone to fingerprints all over the screen, especially if you eat fries at McDonalds and surf the web on your iPhone.
Apple actually introduces something new on the iPhone 3G S to make fingerprints less stick to the screen. MacDailyNews reports that Apple reveals in the cleaning instructions for the iPhone that the new iPhone 3G S has an oleophobic coating on the screen.
To clean the screen of the new iPhone 3G S simply wipe screen with a soft, lint-free cloth to remove oil left by your hands and face.
How well this oleophobic coating will work remains to be seen when the new iPhone 3G S is launching on June 19th. Have you pre-ordered your 3G S yet?.
