Like most Apple products, the company’s new titanium credit card looks (and sounds) sleek and elegant.

And, like most Apple products, it requires a pretty strict care routine.

Alongside Tuesday’s wide release of Apple Card, Cupertino shared instructions on how to protect and maintain the alabaster charge plate.

First things first: Store the credit card in a wallet, pocket, or bag made of soft fabrics—but preferably not leather or denim (the two most popular wallet/pocket materials), which can cause permanent discoloration.

Also avoid placing it in the same slot or billfold as another (i.e. lesser) piece of plastic that could scratch the Apple Card.

The firm urges users to stay vigilant, never touching their titanium card to any hard surfaces or materials—tabletops, card readers, loose change, etc.—to prevent damage.

If your precious does mistakenly come in contact with a contaminant, gently wipe it with a soft, slightly damp (preferably with isopropyl alcohol), lint-free microfiber cloth (one of which anyone who is anyone carries at all times).

Whatever you do, never use household cleaners, compressed air, aerosol sprays, solvents, ammonia, or abrasives.

Finally—and this just feels like common sense—don’t store your Apple Card near magnets that will probably desensitize the magnetic strip.

All of this is a moot point, of course, for the majority of users who will simply manage their Goldman Sachs-backed MasterCard entirely through Apple Wallet.

“We’re thrilled with the overwhelming interest in Apple Card and its positive reception,” Jennifer Bailey, vice president of Apple Pay, said this week. “Customers have told us they love Apple Card’s simplicity and how it gives them a better view of their spending.”

Among its perks are 24/7 support, weekly and monthly spending summaries, and a transaction history featuring full names of vendors and splash images matching the spending category.

Plus, you don’t have to worry about annual, late, international, or over-the-limit fees. And the firm promised it won’t track where customers shop, what they buy, or how much they spend.

Credit limits vary depending on the applicant’s income, among other factors.

Keep up with the Apple Card via its dedicated Twitter account, which launched in April but has tweeted only once since this week’s nationwide expansion.

According to the plaintiff, it was extremely important for the development of the cameras of the iPhone.

In 2016, Apple released the iPhone 7 Plus, not having signed a pre-deal with Corephotonics. Then Corephotonics tried to negotiate with Apple about a partnership, but to no avail.

Later, after examining the camera modules Plus the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 Plus, a developer of technology came to the conclusion that they use its patents, which Apple did not think to license.
