Hidden among the announcements during Apple's Monday event was the introduction of the tech giant's latest accessory: a polishing cloth.

The cloth is available on Apple's store to help keep that new iPhone, iPad or MacBook clean. The price? $19.

Apple said the cloth, made of a "soft, nonabrasive material," will clean any display safely and effectively.

The cloth is only available in white (sorry, space gray and rose gold fans). According to Apple's website, it ships in November.

Keep in mind if you want that smartphone or to stay shiny without spending nearly $20 on a cloth, you can find multiple microfiber cloth options ranging between $6 to $10.

On Monday, Apple introduced a new line of MacBook Pros as well as the third generation of its AirPods wireless earbuds. Both go on sale Oct. 26.

Apple's October event follows the launch of the iPhone 13 last month. The company's latest smartphone is available in four options: the , the iPhone 13 Mini, the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
