Below, we have roundup tidbits about the two machines.
1. Clean Your Apple Pro Display XDR:
Apple have specifically released a new Support document that explains how to keep the display clean, including standard Pro Display XDR and matte coating with nano-texture Pro Display XDR. When users purchase Pro Display XDR, an Apple Cleaning Cloth is included in the box, which is an integral part of the cleaning process.
For the standard Pro Display XDR, the instructions are simple. Users can use polishing cloth that Apple provided or any other “clean, dry microfiber cloth” to wipe the dust and smudges off the display. And if additional cleaning of the glass is required, it’s recommended to use a “little amount of water”.
However, for Pro Display XDR with a unique nano-textured matte coating, Apple warns against using non-Apple cleaning cloths to clean nano-textured glass, and not using water or any other liquid. If you lose the included polishing cloth, you can contact Apple to order a replacement polishing cloth.
