You need a special cloth to clean Apple's Pro Display XDR

You need a special cloth to clean Apple's Pro Display XDR

If you're planning to buy the Apple Pro Display XR with the matte nano-texture glass, note that you cannot use any micro-fibre cloth to clean it. 

Apple published a support document for the Pro Display XDR which explicitly states you can only use the dry polishing cloth that comes with the Pro Display XDR to wipe dust or smudges off the screen. In addition, you cannot add water or use other liquids to clean the nano-texture glass.

To clean the polishing cloth, you have to hand wash it with dish soap and water, rinse thoroughly and allow it to air dry over 24 hours. In the event that you lose the dry polishing cloth, you cannot buy it from Apple Store or its Authorized Apple Retailers. You have to contact Apple to order a replacement polishing cloth. The replacement cost is not known at the moment.

The matte nano-texture glass is an optional upgrade at an extra S$1,400 for users who work in a particularly variable lighting environment where glare should be reduced to the bare minimum. Apple claims the nano-texture is etched into the glass at the nanometre level, which could explain why it recommends users to clean it with the special cloth to protect the delicate nature of the coating.
