Avoid products that contain bleach or hydrogen peroxide to clean your Apple products. And it’s the apple brand that says it.
Watch out for wipes
Cleaning wipes are convenient, but in some cases they can damage your surfaces. In particular some devices from the Cupertino company, surrounded by a flexible or porous surface.
In a long page published in the Assistance section, the company details, product by product, how to clean without damaging or damaging your devices. If you’re late on your spring cleaning, this is where it’s going.
But the most important are wipes and “aggressive” cleansers.. Apple advises against:
- The use of aerosol, bleach, and abrasive product
- Spraying directly on the product
- And even excessive wiping of the product, “which can lead to damage”

How to disinfect a product?
According to Apple, it is possible to disinfect a headed device, especially during this pandemic period. But not just any old way.
“You can gently wipe the hard, non-porous surfaces of your Apple product, including the screen, keyboard, or external surfaces, using a wipe impregnated with 70% isopropyl alcohol or 75% ethyl alcohol, or a disinfectant wipe”, Explains Apple.
“Do not use no products containing bleach or hydrogen peroxide. Prevent moisture from entering the openings of the device and do not immerse your Apple product in any cleaning products. Do not use disinfectant on textile or leather surfaces.”
Advice that will save you a trip to the company’s after-sales service. Especially since damage caused by liquid is not covered by the warranty of Apple products or by the AppleCare Protection Plan.
