    I noticed that whenever my iPhone 7 Plus is full of fingerprints that the display coating has stripes:

    Is this normal? I think it has to do something with the oleophobic coating. It's impossible to get rid of those stripes though. I cleaned it with microfiber and spectacle cloths and they disappear for a while but as soon as there are fingerprints on the display those stripes are visible again.

    I've never encountered this before.

    The only thing I'm reminded of is when I have a dirty iPad screen and I'm using my smart case.

    Thanks for your reply. I've also seen this on my friends iPad Air 2 screen but he has the smart case, too, and the lines matched the case. However I don't have any display protection / case on my iPhone. I only use the Apple Leather Case.

    Looks like your phone screen wasn't coated properly at the factory.

    Yeah, it would seem as though the coating is only where there aren't any fingerprints.
