    Hi,

    So upgraded to a 2nd generation 12.9 iPad Pro. The screen seems to be a finger print magnet, screen is covered in smudges. I'm forever cleaning it!

    Really noticeable when i'm in Safari and there is a lot of white background

    Really don't recall this on my 1st generation iPad Pro

    Anyone notice their 2nd generation being a smudge magnet?

    It is more of a fingerprint magnet than the other models. I don't know what exactly changed, as this model still retains the oleophobic fingerprint coating. Unless the display material has been altered with new Promotion displays.

    It’s down to the anti reflective coating making the fingerprints more visible. I also noticed it wipes clean a lot quicker than my iPad Pro 9.7 using a good cloth.

    I feel it's a bit better than the gen 1 12.9 in regards to fingerprints.

    My gen 1 12.9 was a notorious fingerprint magnet

    My 10.5 is slightly less prone but much worse compared to the screen of my iPhone 7Plus.
