We know that you and your staff are concerned about the coronavirus and diligently making sure all surfaces in your facility are being disinfected regularly. Disinfecting Apple iPads at your property or facility is just as important. We have always recommended following Apple’s instructions for wiping down and cleaning the iPads you are using in your property rooms.
We wanted to let you know that in response to concerns about disinfecting iPads and iPhones to keep the virus at bay, Apple has updated their policy as follows:
Using a 70 percent isopropyl alcohol wipe or Clorox Disinfecting Wipes, you may gently wipe the hard, nonporous surfaces of your Apple product, such as the display, keyboard, or other exterior surfaces. Don’t use bleach. Avoid getting moisture in any opening, and don’t submerge your Apple product in any cleaning agents. Don’t use on fabric or leather surfaces.
Please continue to avoid spraying the devices directly, and do not use window cleaner, bleach or abrasives when wiping down. Not following these recommendations can result in damages to your iPads. And remember to also wipe down your cords and chargers, as guests tend to handle these for their personal use as well.
For further instructions, you can find more information at Apple Support following this link. Also, do please reach out to us at Volo if you have any comments or questions. We are always happy to help!
