Tesla CEO and Founder Elon Musk has mercilessly trolled Tim Cook on Twiter over Apple's new $19 cleaning cloth.
Cook posted on Friday in celebration of Apple's new store in Istanbul stating:
Come see the Apple Cloth ™️Come see the Apple Cloth ™️— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) October 22, 2021October 22, 2021
Musk replied to the tweet stating "Come see the Apple Cloth TM" much to the joy of the internet.
Musk was, of course, mocking the new Apple cleaning cloth the company now sells on its website. Alongside its new MacBook Pro (2021) and AirPods 3, Apple quietly released a new non-abrasive polishing cloth for cleaning any Apple display that costs an eye-watering $19. From the company's website:
Hilariously, the 'Compatibility' section of the product contains basically every Apple device with a screen. Whilst plenty of people have mocked the cloth as a prime example of ridiculous Apple products at ridiculous prices, the cloth is extremely popular and currently won't ship until January if you try to buy one.
On Monday Apple released its new MacBook Pro featuring the new M1 Pro and M1 Max Apple silicon chips, and a 120Hz mini-LED display, setting the new Pro apart as Apple's best MacBook ever.
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?!
