Yes, you read the title right, Apple is now selling a “Polishing Cloth” that enables users to clean their devices using an official Apple cleaning cloth. Coming in at $19 (Indian pricing not revealed yet) this is a plain white cloth with the brand’s logo on it.
This cloth was released right after Apple’s “Unleashed” event where they launched the new HomePod colors, AirPods 3, and new MacBook Pros with the M1 Pro and M1 Max chipsets. On the product page for the cloth, Apple says it can perfectly clean the displays — and nano-texture glass. The brand has also made a compatibility list and has included pretty much every Apple device.
The Apple-branded cloth, made of unspecified nonabrasive materials, will be available to purchase separately. The only product that comes with a free cloth in the box is their very own Pro Display XDR which costs $6000 or Rs 5,29,990!
Apple recommends using “soft, lint-free cloth” and avoiding “abrasive cloths, towels, paper towels, or similar items” while cleaning their devices and this cloth is the optimal solution for all those recommendations.
Most people do not see the point of spending so much money on a simple microfiber cloth with the Apple branding on it but the final decision is yours!
