    And yet all the hipsters will buy it, as is with most Apple products.

    Maybe it's a small flying rug with a Apple genie that grants you three wishes..
    As always Apple doesn't just sell things...they sell "fashion statements".

    This reminds me of BMW - the Apple of cars: take a plate of vomit and it costs nothing but put a BMW badge on top of the vomit and suddenly the value increases at 1000 USD.

    Most people will buy into anything if you package it the right way with a good advertising campaign. Even things that maybe a couple of years ago they had never even heard of.

    Just an ordinary microfiber cloth, but since it's made by Apple, it's mysteriously not microfiber, it's retinafiber, or whatever.

    Can't wait for Apple Microwave.

    Apple Microwave powered by Apple M1 Pro SOC will heat up your food up to 40% faster then any other name brands

    I'm surprised it didn't say "only compatible with Apple products, other manufacturers screens may get scratches" :D

    Why the surprise?

    This the same company that removed the audio jack so they could sell their expensive wireless earbuds...

    And now removed the charger so they can save a few more pennies...

    Because we all know how much Apple needs the money...

    Apple is inching closer and closer into scam territory.
    Some might even say they are already there.

    I am afraid it will not. The reason it costs 25 is because it has sensors to detect unothorized use of it and grow micro spikes

    Soon to be heard in the Genius Bar.
    "Sorry. We only do warranty coverage on the screen if you can prove that you have used an Apple certified cloth."
    "Also we do not do warranty if you have used an Apple certified cloth."

    I will wait for the refresh, hopefully they will have ironed out any bugs by then.

    It's a fashion accessory to match that other fashion accessory.

    From what I heard, iPhones don't have that large of a profit margin, though, I guess that depends on whether profit accounts for R&D costs.

    This, on the other hand, is so blatantly a ripoff that even Apple fans might have a hard time defending it. Funny thing is if Apple made 1 million of these stupid things and only sold 1% of them, they'd still probably see a profit.
