Apple’s $19 ‘Polishing Cloth’ is Backordered For Months
Apple fans know when they see a real.
The early adopters who got Apple’s awe-inspiring $19 “Polishing Cloth” made that clear Monday, buying out whatever critical supply of the product Apple had in stock.
A quick check on the company’s store on Monday, when the product was first revealed, showed orders of the remarkable towelette were going to be delivered to Bay Area area codes between Oct. 26 and Oct. 28. Merely a day later, that delivery window has been delayed more than three weeks. The new delivery window is Nov. 18 to Nov. 24.
For the unaware, Apple describes its newest creation as a poet would a spring day: “Made with soft, non-abrasive material, the Polishing Cloth cleans any Apple display, including nano-texture glass, safely and effectively.”
