Apple’s most expensive Pro Display XDR is out today and is available at a starting price of $4,999 with a matte nano texture upgrade for $1,000. According to an Apple support document, the Pro Display XDR with nano-texture glass must be cleaned only with the dry polishing cloth that comes with the display. No water or liquids should be used to clean the glass.
The company suggests the owners of the Pro Display XDR to never use any other cloths to clean the glass and if in case the provided cloth is lost, Apple Support should be immediately contacted so that another cloth can be ordered. However, it is not known whether Apple is charging for replacement cleaning cloths.
Apple has provided specific instructions for washing the polishing cloth, which includes using dish soap and water, rinsing thoroughly, and then letting it air dry for at least 24 hours. Moreover, the standard Pro Display XDR glass can be cleaned with a standard microfiber cloth and a small amount of water but the casing has to be cleaned with a soft, slightly damp, lint-free cloth. Pro Display XDR orders with standard glass will be available from December 20 whereas the Pro Display XDR with nano-texture glass won’t be available until January 21 at the earliest.
