The latest top-of-the-range Apple display, the XDR Pro Display, is now available. And it’s not cheap, starting at $ 4,999 with an opaque “nano-texture” update for just $ 1,000. However, if you buy this nano-texture update and you never have a spot of dust on it, you shouldn’t think about cleaning it with a little water and a microfibre cloth. Instead, an Apple support document states that it is necessary to clean this nano-texture glass only with a special “dry polishing cloth” supplied with the display and nothing else (via MacRumors).
Apple has not yet explained why the owners of an XDR Pro Display with nanotexture should use a special cloth for another screen cleaner (we asked for it), but it is probably because of how the display is made. “Nano-texture” glass is Apple’s term for its non-reflective matte texture option. According to Apple, the nanoscale nanostructure is etched onto the glass to maintain the contrast on the display despite the matte finish. For some reason, the nanotess is so delicate that it should only be cleaned with a special cloth.
If you lose this polishing cloth, you can’t go directly to Amazon or go to an Apple store and buy a new one – you’ll need to contact the Apple Support Department for a replacement. We asked Apple how much an exchange could cost.
And if you’re worried, Apple has also given specific instructions on how to clean the polishing cloth: hand wash it with dishwashing liquid and water, rinse it and leave it to “air dry” for at least 24 hours. I am sincerely surprised that any detergent will work for the cloth.
The special apple cleaning cloth can be annoying, but at least an apple cleaning cloth is included. You’ll need other essential accessories like a stand (Apple costs $ 999, or you can choose the VESA adapter for $ 199) or a webcam (like the Logitech 4K magnetic webcam for $ 199.99 specially designed for the monitor) pays 4,999 extra dollars included in the basic display.
