What you need to know

- The accessory is finally back in stock on the Apple website.
- Customers can order the product for delivery in as soon as three days.
Apple's most meme-worthy product from 2021 is back and ready to grace your shopping cart.
The company's self-branded polishing cloth, which was revealed alongside the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro at the "Unleashed" event Apple held in the fall, is finally back in stock on the Apple website. After launch, the product quickly sold out online and in stores and has been out of stock for months.
Now, the product is available for customers on the Apple Store website again. Those who wish to order the cloth can get it delivered to their doorstep in as soon as three days. For example, I'm currently able to get the cloth delivered by Friday, December 14.
Apple says that its polishing cloth is made out of a "nonabrasive" material that is made to clean any Apple display, including nano-texture glass like the Pro Display XDR.
You can order the new polishing cloth on the Apple Store website now. Unfortunately, it does not appear that the cloth is back in stores yet but that could change shortly if Apple has enough stock to get them into it.
Powerful computing for all
The newest and best
The 14-inch MacBook Pro (2021) comes with an M1 Pro or M1 Max SoC that's fast, secure, and available with the most memory and storage options. Did we mention that incredible display and that it comes with MagSafe?!

Got mine. Ordered it over a month ago, but it came in earlier than they projected. So who needs a $20 cleaning cloth? Maybe people with a $6000 monitor. No, I'm not one of those, but this is the cloth that Apple ships with them, and if you are one of those people, maybe you want to replace the one you have been using for a year. Me, I bought it as a hoot. It's fun to show off a $20 cleaning cloth with an Apple logo. Practically though, now that I have it, I'm pretty happy with it. It does a good job on my Apple screens, and non-Apple screens alike. It's pretty agnostic. It is thick and firm, so more like wiping with a washcloth than a kleenex like most microfiber cloths. I think Apple might sell more of these things if they had one out at their stores, on a tether, that people could use to shine up their phones or iPads.
