Apple Releases Nano-Texture Glass Cleaning Guide for its New 27-inch iMac

Apple has released a support document to assist users who have purchased the latest 27-inch iMac in cleaning the display.

The new iMac comes with an optional $625 CAD upgrade to get a nano-texture glass display. This nano-textured glass is said to hone down the reflections on the display allowing a lower level of glare to come from the screen. For those who opt to upgrade their purchase, Apple provides a polishing cloth to assist in wiping down the display.

MacRumors has reported that Apple has updated a support document overnight, giving detailed instructions on how to effectively clean off the nano-texture display. Apple urges users to not use water or liquids to clean the glass, which is etched down to a nanometer level.

Instead, Apple suggests using the included polishing cloth with a 70 percent isopropyl alcohol (IPA) solution to get rid of hard-to-remove smudges.  The support document highly suggests against using any other cloth or cloth substitute to clean the display. If lost, the polishing cloth can be replaced by ordering a new one through Apple for $9USD. To clean the polishing cloth, Apple advises users to handwash the cloth with soap and water. Rising thoroughly, users should allow the cloth to air dry for 24 hours before using it once again.

The nano-texture glass was first introduced in the Pro XDR Display. The nano-texture glass upgrade to the iMac may seem like a costly investment as the latest model starts at $2,399 CAD. Internally, it comes with 3.1GHz 6-Core Processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB S SD and Radeon Pro 5300. There is also an 8-core 10th-generation Intel Core i7 processor iMac model with 8GB RAM and 512GB SSD, which starts at $3,079 CAD.
