    Are there any special considerations with the IPP screen and cleaners or cleaning procedures to maximize the IPP screen life?

    How do you clean the fingerprints and debris from the screen safely? Products? Thanks so much!

    I just use a microfiber cloth and my breath to clean out the screen.

    #1. Light feather dust with microfiber cloth to dust of any hard sand grains.
    #2. Swipe clean with microfiber cloth
    if you miss step #1. you may dig in hard grains as you wipe clean the screen that causes scratches..

    Apple recommends simply: "use a soft, slightly damp, lint-free cloth" and notes that excessive cleaning will prematurely degrade the oleophobic coating.

    I use a blue microfiber cloth. Sometimes I'll use a wet sponge and then dry its with a towel.

    For a couple years I have been using a product that I originally found at an Apple Store, although they no longer carry it, or any cleaner now for that matter. It's called Whoosh! and it does a tremendous job of cleaning your screen, as well as disinfecting it. Here is the link for it at Amazon:

    The less you use the better. Just a soft microfiber cloth should remove common finger prints. "Slightly" damp if dry does not do it. No chemical required.

    The other day I wiped my mbp with a microfibre cloth as I always have, and the antireflective coating suddenly started smearing right off. Looked on the forums and apparently it's happened to a number of people.

    Now I'm kinda paranoid and don't know what the heck to do to wipe off screens, as the prescribed method has already made a mess of one device. :(

    That's a recognised manufacturing defect, take it to an Apple Store and they'll change the whole display and lip section for you.

    Personally on my iPad Pro I like to use fine grain sand paper, really clears out all the bits and bobs.

    (Disclaimer: this is a joke and not something you should ever try)

    I might be screwed because I didn't get AppleCare and I'm past the 1 year mark, but yeah I'm going to have it checked out just the same. Never had an issue on anything else, but the iPad Pro seems to feature a more aggressive anti reflective coating similar to the rmbp hence my concern. At very least it's probably motivation to purchase some AppleCare for the iPP

    Regardless of the status / lack of AppleCare, they'll replace it. There is a forum thread on here with all the info, search MacBook Pro Retina staingate and you'll get loads of conversations on it.

    They'll replace it without batting an eye lid, even out of warranty.

    Fingers crossed thanks! And so far no issues with the iPP. Wipes fine with a microfibre cloth :)

    Microfiber towel and distilled water (just enough to wet a small section) is all it takes. If you're a germaphobe, then by all means use chemicals. Make sure you scrub that entire top layer of UV protection right off. Can't be too precautious with those super UV immune super bugs. :p

    Another vote for this, it's what I've always done. Gets it lovely and sparkly.

    I've always wondered how well sulphuric acid would bring up the display

    Very crisp and clear I'd think, it would be almost as if the glass wasn't there anymore :D

    Also ZERO parallax effect when using the pencil.

    I had a silk shirt that ripped beyond repair so I tore it up more and made various things out of it. One of them was the best screen wipe ever, perfectly clean without any cleaner.

    And here I thought glass was one of the few materials that can safely hold sulfuric acid. :p

    Glass?? But isn't the iPad screen made of gorillas? I'm sure I read that somewhere, they're not so resilient as glass ;)

    Haha, I do remember something about that from Chemistry in High School.

    Still, I'm sure it'd do a good job on those pesky oliophobic and anti-reflection layers.

    Who needs them!?

    Your lucky, all I remember from high school chemistry is the teacher wearing high heels and leather mini skirts to class almost every day and getting me to help in the cupboard a lot.






    Wonder whatever happened to him :D
