What you need to know
- Tesla has announced a new 'Cyberwhistle'.
- It's a stainless steel whistle that costs $50.
- Musk mocked Apple customers on Twitter, saying they should ignore the Apple Cloth and buy this instead.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has mocked Apple's $19 cleaning cloth and told his Twitter followers to buy Tesla's $50 Cyberwhistle instead.
Musk followed up and said, "Don't waste your money on that silly Apple Cloth, buy our whistle instead!"
This isn't the first time Elon Musk has trolled Apple over its cleaning cloth. From October:
The Cloth is very hard to get your hands on, with shipping pushed back into January. The Cyberwhistle is totally sold out on the other hand, except on eBay at 7 or 8 times its $50 price tag. Apple's cloth is made with "soft, non-abrasive material" and even got the teardown treatment from iFixit as people bought into the joke.

Feels weird saying nice things about a $20 cleaning cloth, but. Consider this is the cloth provided with $6000 Pro Display XDR monitors with the nano-texture screens. If that is what Apple suggest for cleaning your $6K screen, there is probably some incentive to do just that. If you've been doing that for a year, you might be interested in a new one. Now you can get one. Not before January, but you get my drift.
