Oleophobic is a new word for me. How about you? What does it mean? Well apparently it describes type of coating they put on the new iPhone 3GS. The oleophobic coating helps make the iPhone’s touch surface finger-print resistant. The oils from your fingers and has tend to leave residue on the phone’s surface. Which can cause the coating to wear off. You can help prevent this by cleaning the surface regularly with a soft cloth. Apple recommends to keep the phone out of extreme temperature environments. Other words, don’t leave it in your car during the summer or winter.
Adj. 1. oleophobic – lacking affinity for oils
oleophilic – having a strong affinity for oils rather than water
