The accessory, listed as compatible with iPhones as far back as the iPhone 6 and Macs dating back to 2012, is made of nonabrasive material and is already in short supply, requiring 3 to 4 weeks to ship. On Amazon.com, premium microfiber cloths go for $1.50 each, putting Apple’s new Polishing Cloth in the running for its highest-margin physical product.

The Cupertino, California-based company has a history of pushing price boundaries with its products and accessories. The iPhone was the first smartphone to approach and surpass the $1,000 mark and it’s only grown in popularity since then, dragging the rest of the mobile industry along. In 2019, Apple introduced an updated Mac Pro with a top configuration option costing more than $50,000. The accompanying Pro Display XDR monitor sells for $4,999 — without a stand. The Pro Stand that Apple sells is a further $999.

MacDailyNews Take: Listen, if you want to polish Apple devices, $19 is a small price to pay for the most-Apple polishing cloth available. 😉

  1. Listening to News radio today at the top of every hour features five minutes of ABC News. They mocked the Apple cloth precisely for the reason in the article: “On Amazon.com, premium microfiber cloths go for $1.50 each” They also went on to say NO Apple logo on this ridiculously high priced Apple product.

    There is only one reason, APPLE GREED. Apple has more than enough money, so I’ll buy the same high quality cloth and save a ton of money. You can buy 13 cloths at $1.50 for $19.50. 13X more expensive for the same product is just WRONG…

    1. GooBs, does your name stand for Greed over erstwhile Brains?

      You used to be nice. Then one day someone pretended to be you a few years ago which you expressed surprise over, and you’ve become a bit of a loudmouth GooB ever since.

      Bring back AppleSynniq and Sh!!!tizenEx, at least they were @holes with class.

      1. “Then one day someone pretended to be you a few years ago which you expressed surprise over”

        Not surprised, just disappointed a low life scumbag like YOU would do it then and still doing it years later.

        Crawl under a rock where you belong and stop bothering people with total NONSENSE…

  2. It’ll enable the user to see things only wishfully imagined. It’s the precursor to the forthcoming AI devices that will delight all with dreams and fortunes.
