The Apple event, which concluded on October 18, saw several devices like the HomePod mini and the Macbook being unveiled in their revamped form. However, what remains a hot topic hours after the event is a polishing cloth which the company released soon after the virtual event ended. Dubbed compatible with outdated Apple devices like iPhone 6 and MacBook 2021, the cloth is priced at Rs1,900.  

What decided the cloth's value? 

According to the reports by Bloomberg, the cloth is made of a non-abrasive material exclusively for Apple products and can be used on devices spanning back to iPhone 6 and MacBook versions from 2012. Ever since its unveiling, the unusually high-priced cloth has already gone out of supply. With just an Apple logo to set it apart, it is hard to tell the difference from a normal microfibre cloth that sells on Amazon at just over Rs100. 

Moreover, the company's Unleashed launch event released several other products like the upgraded HomePod Mini, AirPods 3, chips and the MacBook pro. Here's a quick look at the products if you missed last night's event.

MacBook pro

With a 14" and a 16" display, Apple released two new versions of the MacBook Pro.
