    I usually use ammonia-free lense wipes to clean my screen and around the TouchID button. But I've seen Apple suggest that alcohol shouldn't be used. These contain isopropyl alcohol. Any clue if it will degrade the coating? Does the home button also contain the coating? I know there are some screen cleaners that are both alcohol and ammonia free.

    I'd think you should be fine with those wipes. Eyeglasses have had anti smudge and anti fog coatings far longer than phones. Those wipes would have been developed to avoid wearing down those coatings.

    Thanks. That's kinda what I figured but wasn't sure if a different process is used for glasses or a different material since they're usually a combined anti-smudge, anti-reflective and anti-scratch coating.
