Apple's new $5000 monitor can ONLY be cleaned with Apple's own cloth

Apple's new Pro Display XDR requires a very special microfiber cleaning cloth

By: Anthony Garreffa from Dec 11, 2019 @ 19:47 CST

If you've just dumped over $50,000 into Apple's new Mac Pro then you will want to grab these $400 wheels for it, and then you'll want to purchase the new Pro Display XDR that costs $5000 on its own -- oh, and the $1000 stand, too.


But did you know that Apple says that you can only use their included cloth to clean the Pro Display XDR, since it has high-end nano-texture glass that must be cleaned by Apple's magical cloth. Apple warns users that they should not be using anything else to clean their Pro Display XDR monitor, but what happens if you lose the included cloth?

Well, that's a mystery... as you can't buy replacement cloths right now so if you lose it you need to call Apple to get a replacement cleaning cloth sent to you. Apple hasn't said how much this cloth will cost, but if the full-specced Mac Pro costs $50,000+ and the wheels are $400 and display is $5000, then the cloth has to be something like $100, right?


There are strict rules on how to clean the cloth itself, with Apple saying you need to use dish soap and water, and then you'll need to rinse and dry it for 24 hours. Thanks, Apple.
