Does the screen have an "oleophobic" coating?

The new iP6+ is showing much less fingerprints than the old iP5 it replaced.

Is the screen of the iP6+ treated with some coating for that? Is it safe to clean the screen with the typical "eyeglasses cleaner" or "keyboard/monitor cleaner" (which is basically isopropyl alcohol).

Just use a slightly damp microfiber cloth. NO glass/monitor cleaners.

Is that advice from Apple or suppliers? or just common sense? (not that there's anything wrong with that!)

Common sense and from the experiences expressed across the interwebs of people who didn’t use common sense. It’s a fact that isopropyl alcohol will damage screens. Use those chemicals on your iPhone at your own risk. You have been warned.

I believe it. And want to add my voice to those advising the same.
I used cleaners on my iP5 and can see the difference.
