After Apple’s event yesterday, in addition to its new MacBook Pros, M1 Pro and Max CPUs, and third-generation AirPods, the company launched this polishing cloth, which you can use for $19.
The Apple-branded cloth, which will be composed of unidentified nonabrasive materials, will be sold separately. Apart from the Apple branding, it’s unclear how the towel differs from a standard microfiber cloth that can be purchased for a fraction of the price.
When cleaning your Apple gadgets, Apple recommends using “soft, lint-free cloths” and avoiding “abrasive cloths, towels, paper towels, or similar items,” all of which are concerns that this $19 cloth alleviates.
Apple claims that the cloth can wipe the screens and nano-texture glass on any Apple device on its product page. If you’re curious, there is a compatibility list.
