The enthusiasts of the iFixit resource, known for its demonstrative disassembly of new electronics, made an unexpected move – while the material on the new MacBook Pro is still being prepared, they decided to please the public by taking apart another sensational Apple product in recent days.
Yes, you understood everything correctly, we are talking about the same “cleaning cloth” or polishing cloth for the screen, which Apple began selling for $ 19 in the United States and 1990 rubles.
The story received the title The Thinnest Apple Device Yet: Polishing Cloth Teardown.
At the very beginning of the article, iFixit could not resist an obvious joke – they used a $ 20 banknote to wipe the iPhone screen and commented on the process by asking if they were doing everything right.
Further, the experts approached the matter with all seriousness, analyzing the napkin with the utmost care. It is noted that the material feels identical to that used in the lining of the iPad Smart Cover with a thin layer of microfiber. Both have a “distinct synthetic leather feel with a touch of fluff, similar to Alcantara.”
Upon closer inspection, it turns out that in fact these are “two glued rags!”. IFixit also advises: “If you feel a little unhappy with your $ 19 purchase, separate the layers and you get two napkins, each costing just $ 9.50.”
Under the microscope, the Apple wipe proved to be a good old cleaning cloth.
Lamented that the “thinnest device Apple” wasted their time and almost $ 20, the experts delivered their verdict:
Apple’s new Polishing Cloth gets a 0 out of 10 on our repairability scale for distracting us from a very important MacBook Pro disassembly and not reassembling after we cut it apart with scissors. “
