    I hear people saying that fine scratches on the 6/6+ screens are actually scratches to the oleophopic coating and not the glass itself.

    I also hear people saying that the oleophopic coating is not permanent and will eventually wear off with use.

    Does this mean that fine scratches may actually disappear with time?

    Best bet is to put a screen protector on to hide the small scratches. You'll also be protecting your screen from additional scratces.

    I hate their coating. It also ruined my retina macbook pro screen in the past and they had to replace the whole screen

    Does really answer the OP though does it?

    You've got me curious. How did the oleophobic coating ruin your MBP screen? I've never heard of this.
