Apple adjusts its position on how to clean its products

Apple has revised its stance on how to clean its products, although the tech giant was previously against the idea of ​​using household cleaning wipes

To clean the iPhone and other glass screen products

 However, it has now updated its guidelines on its website in light of the increasing spread of the Coronavirus.

Before this update, Cupertino was strongly opposed to using any chemical at all

 To clean their products due to the potential change of the oil repellent

(Oleophobic)

 It is a protective layer used on touch devices such as iPhones and iPads to avoid fingerprints and smudges.

The site says: “You can gently wipe the outer surfaces of your iPhone with 70 percent saturated wipes with isopropyl alcohol.

 Or antiseptic wipes containing (Clorox) ”

 “Don’t use bleach

 And avoid moisture reaching any hole, and do not immerse the iPhone in any cleaning materials.

It is now permitted to use such wipes to wipe hard surfaces, which do not allow liquid

 Or air to pass through

for Apple’s product kindly

 Like the screen,

keyboard, or other external surfaces.

This adjustment marks a shift in the company’s previous position on cleaning

 Where Apple previously advised customers that the use of these products may corrode the special coating layer on the screen

 But it now advises customers to stay away from strong cleaning methods such as mist sprays, bleaches or abrasives.

The site also expressly states that customers should not directly spray detergents on the surfaces of the device

 Rather, they should spray the soft cloth or napkin first and then clean the device.

The updated guidance comes as concerns about the new COVID-19 virus spread

 Which affected nearly 110 thousand people worldwide

 With the death of 3123 confirmed cases.

While the novelty (COVID-19) makes it difficult to determine the extent of its spread over phones

 However, studies indicate that several other types of Corona virus have the ability to remain on glass and plastic surfaces for approximately nine days.
