The olephobic screen coating has started to wear off my 8 month old iPhone 3GS, even using a clean micro fibber cloth I cannot fully get the screen smudge free in fact the surface of the screen now looks slightly cloudy. There is also a lot of resistance swiping across the screen which makes the user interaction horrible. The faded coating is worse than a 3G with no coating. That all said, when my iPad gets to this stage it will look and feel horrible, it seems the warranty notes it does not cover coatings designed to fade over time. Do you think this is acceptable given that it diminishes the usability of the item or is this a good ploy by apple to keep you buying new? The whole point of the iPad is interaction with the screen.
