    Hi, guys, when i bought my iPhone 6, I immediately put a screen protector on. But then I hated it and took it off. After that I noticed that the phone started to collect more fingerprints, could it be that adhesive from screen protector damaged the oleophobic coating, or is it just my imagination? Thanks.

    It's a possibility, depending on how strong/what type of adhesive was used for the screen protector. The oleophobic coating doesn't last forever, and its effectiveness diminishes within a few months for most people anyway after normal use.

    Apple themselves say:

    So if there's any method to check if its there or not?

    No way to tell that I have heard here. Just wipe you phone down once a day with a microfiber cloth and RELAX and enjoy your new phone.

    Did the screen protector have an oleophobic coating?

    upd: protector feels smoother, but i think it is becuase it's plastic.
