Apple’s newest display, Pro Display XDR, has attracted the attention of users around the world with an unusual requirement. The supporting documentation contains a categorical restriction on cleaning the screen with any object other than the reusable napkin made of a special tissue supplied with the screen. According to the company, this is necessary to preserve the expensive “nanotexture” coverage of the screen.
What is it, in Apple explain fairly, referring to the commercial secret. In a simplified form the glass of the screen “at the nanometer level” is covered with a certain surface, which gives it the quality of a matte surface and eliminates the appearance of glare. Thus, it improves the contrast and overall picture quality.
According to Apple, this coverage is so delicate and sensitive that ordinary microfiber napkins are not suitable for cleaning the screen, this requires no less delicate “nano napkin”. However, the microfiber napkin can be washed in water and with a regular cleaning product, but then, according to the instructions, it will take at least 24 hours to dry. And Apple has not yet explained what to do if the napkin goes bad? At least, the company was so kind that they included one into the monitor delivery set (costing $4999).
