This rule applies to Apple devices including Macs, iPhones, and iPods.
Instead, Apple users should use Clorox wipes, 70% isopropyl alcohol wipes, or 75% ethyl alcohol wipes and avoid scrubbing their devices too hard or getting moisture in openings.
The guidelines also state to use soft cloths and avoid abrasive fabrics like paper towels to clean your products. Users should also avoid submerging their Apple products in liquid disinfectant or spraying disinfectant directly on the product.
