Apple introduces guidelines for disinfecting their products

Apple has recently updated its guidelines for cleaning all their devices. Amid the rapidly spreading coronavirus, there has been a surge of people who wish to disinfect their various Apple devices and these guidelines will help apple users in determining how they should do it perfectly.

The new advice was posted by Apple on their support website on Monday 9 and suggests that if one wants to disinfect their devices they can gently wipe the hard, nonporous surfaces of your Apple product. These include the display, keyboard, and other exterior surfaces.

The new guidelines also added that one should not use bleach and should at all cost avoid getting moisture in any of the openings of the device. They also advised users not to submerge their products in any cleaning agents and also advised users to not use them on any fabric or leather.

Before this update to its guidelines, Apple has greatly advised against using disinfectant wipes on any of its products. Apple still discourages excessive wiping. In its updated guidelines, Apple did not specifically mention the recent rapid spread of the coronavirus but the spread of the deadly virus is likely the cause as per reports.

Most effective way

But more important than disinfecting one's devices is washing one's hands thoroughly. As per reports washing one's hands with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds is the most effective way to kill the coronavirus that might have accumulated on one's hands. Using alcohol-based hand sanitizers is also an effective substitute if handwash facilities are not available.
