How to clean Apple products

From fingerprint smudges to bacteria to spilled coffee, iPhones, Apple laptops, and iPads experience a lot of filth throughout their lives. Customers should not use hydrogen peroxide to clean Apple products, according to a new support document. Ethyl alcohol is a new edition to the list of safe cleaning agents. Apple has altered the phrasing of a support article titled “How to clean your Apple products” in a subtle way.

Apple device customers may use 75 percent ethyl alcohol wipes safely, according to two new lines added to the company’s instructions. It also says that bleach and hydrogen peroxide is not permissible to use on iPhones, iPads, or other Apple products.

Apple customers should clean their gadgets with Clorox wipes, 70% isopropyl alcohol wipes, or 75% ethyl alcohol wipes. Also, avoid scrubbing too hard or getting moisture in the holes. The last time the paper was updated was at the height of the pandemic.

Continued use of solvent on a display, while in line with Apple’s instructions, may cause harm to the oleophobic layer. As a result, caution is advisable. The company also advises customers to avoid putting moisture into device apertures and to avoid submerging its goods in cleaning solutions.

To clean your items, use soft cloths rather than abrasive materials like paper towels, according to the recommendations.
