More successful than the iPhone: surprising Apple bestseller sold out for months

Nobody really wanted to expect such a surprise hit. Anyone who thinks they have had to wait a long time for a new iPhone or MacBook Pro is not yet aware of the delivery times of this bestseller from Apple. For some people just a small rag, for others it is the perfect gift idea for Christmas, but it no longer arrives on time.

Initially unnoticed by the public, on Monday presented not only new models of the MacBook Pro, but also a "polishing cloth" for an incredible 25 euros (see Apple). After all, customers receive a cleaning rag with the original Apple logo .

Longer delivery times than the iPhone: Apple's cleaning rags will be sold out until next year

But seriously: Who buys such a small piece of fabric for too much money? The way it looks, there are too many customers. According to official information, when ordering in the German Apple Online Store, you have to wait 11 to 12 weeks for delivery; in the US store, the manufacturer specifies a delivery time of 2 to 3 months . In a nutshell: It is very likely that quite a few interested parties will have to wait until the beginning of 2022.

With delivery times like this, the small polishing cloth is ultimately "more successful" than any iPhone 13 or MacBook Pro, because they are more likely to be delivered to the waiting customers . For example, there is currently a blue iPhone 13 with 128 GB from Apple by the beginning of November at the latest from the time the order is received.

But why do so many people even buy the Apple cleaning cloth and are willing to pay so much money for it? We have a justified assumption: there is probably one or the other buyer who sees such a cleaning cloth with the Apple logo as the perfect gift for an Apple fan among friends and family . Unfortunately, the creative idea for new customers no longer works due to the long delivery times. Is there no alternative?

Alternative gift idea for Apple lovers

We have a suggestion: If you don't want a cleaning cloth, but instead want another Apple product at a "low" price as a gift, we recommend taking a look at the Apple AirTags . A single key finder costs 34 euros. In the 4-pack, however, we currently only pay 97.21 euros at Amazon - that's a little more than 24 euros per piece (see at Amazon). The perfect gift for 4 good friends who are at home in the Apple world.
