    If the oleophobic screen coating wears off, is it covered under warranty? I don't use my iPhone like crazy but the coating seems to have worn off. I had this since mid-October last year. The water droplet surface tension test seems to confirm my suspicions. The oleophobic screen coating will not break the surface tension of water. So a water droplet on an oleophobic screen won't spread across the glass but will appear slightly raised. My iPad (which I've had since April 3rd launch day) and the back of my iPhone 4 seems to have passes the test. The front however, has not. I don't abuse my iPhone in any way. If I make a Genius bar appointment, will I get a replacement? Is it covered by the 1 year manufacturer warranty? Thanks in advance!

    Doubt it, but it's easy enough to call and ask.
