Apple held its second annual keynote on Monday. The opportunity for the American giant to present among other things its new MacBook Pro 2021. But it is an accessory posted on the company’s website after the conference that attracted attention.
Apple has indeed marketed a cloth to clean the screens of Apple devices, reports Phonandroid. Price of the piece of fabric: 25 euros. “Made of a soft-touch, non-abrasive material, the wipe cleans any Apple display, including nano-textured glass, effectively and safely,” Apple says on its website.
Not having the money to change Macs, very happy to have this option. Thanks Apple! pic.twitter.com/lz7GPYd9tm

Apple previously advised a simple “soft cloth”
The cloth is – obviously – adorned with the brand’s logo but that seems little to justify such a price. This type of screen cleaning cloth costs a lot less on most e-commerce sites. The novelty of Apple has therefore caused a wave of mockery on social networks.

Some time ago, Apple had already produced a cloth to clean its high-end Pro Display XDR screen. The accessory was provided with. For the rest of its devices, the Cupertino company simply advised “a soft, slightly damp and lint-free cloth, like a cloth for optics”.
