When Apple revealed its revamped Mac Pro for $5,999 and Apple Pro Display XDR 32-inch 6K display for $4,999, there wasn’t any doubt this device was implied for severe specialists.

When they went on sale Tuesday, we found out a bit more. Aside from finding out the most costly Mac Pro can cost more than a Tesla Cybertruck, the other thing we found out was that an optional function for the Apple Pro Display will need some unique handling.

A brand-new assistance file launched on Apple’s site Tuesday stated that a “nano-texture” variation of its screen, which has actually unique particles engraved into the screen to spread light in such a way that makes the screen much easier to check out if you’re utilizing it in the field or near a phase, can’t be cleaned up with a normal fabric and water. In this case, the nano-texture variation of Apple’s screen — which costs $1,000 more than the more basic glass choice — will include an unique “polishing cloth.”

“Use only the dry polishing cloth that comes with your display to wipe dust or smudges off the screen,” Apple composed on the assistance file. “Don’t add water or use other liquids to clean the nano-texture glass.”

If you happen to misplace or lose your cloth, Apple said you can contact its support staff for a new one. (And if you need to clean the polishing cloth, Apple asks you hand-wash and line dry.)

Apple warning customers to use a special cloth isn’t the only time the company’s asked its customers to treat its premium products differently. The original iPhone in 2007, for example, had a headphone port that didn’t fit many popular headphones without a special extension cord. 

For the Apple Pro Display XDR, the company also warns customers not to use compressed air to clean the screen’s “cheese grater” enclosure. Whether the screen requires any other special handling will be yet to be seen. The company didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
