Provides cleaning instructions for all its devices

Although the tech giant previously advised against the idea of using disinfectants on its devices, Apple has updated its website
with instructions on how to clean its products in light of coronavirus
Before this update, the Cupertino company had been firmly against the use of any chemical whatsoever to clean its products due to the potential degradation of the oleophobic coating a protective layer used on touchscreen devices like the iPhone and iPad to avoid fingerprints and smudges.
Using a 70 percent isopropyl alcohol wipe or Clorox Disinfecting Wipes, you may gently wipe the exterior surfaces of your iPhone, the site reads. Don’t use bleach. Avoid getting moisture in any openings, and don’t submerge your iPhone in any cleaning agents.
Its obvious that nothing about the devices themselves has changed to warrant this new information, so its a sign that Apple is taking the need for disinfection seriously enough to alter its advice.
The instructions are rather specific on what to use and what to avoid and vary depending on which model iPhone, iPad, display, or Mac you have.
For most cases, however, you must first unplug any cables from your device, switch it off and use a soft, slightly damp, lint-free cloth  for example, a lens cloth to wipe it down. This refers to a microfibre cloth as they arent likely to scratch your screen.
For the latest range of iPhone 11 handsets, due to their superior waterproofing, you can also use the same type of cloth dipped in warm, soapy water for more stubborn grime.
If youre unsure about your specific Apple product, visit the website
and choose your device from the menu to see the relevant instructions.
