Apple is warning customers that some fabrics, like leather and denim, might cause permanent discoloration of their Apple Card.

The physical Apple Card is made from titanium and laser-etched with your name and the Apple logo. A multi-layer coating process is used to produce a white finish that's added to the titanium base.

A new support document detailing how to clean your Apple Card, reveals that the coating can be damaged by hard surfaces or materials and discolored by leather or jeans.

How to clean your titanium Apple Card
If your titanium Apple Card comes into contact with contaminants that can cause stains, follow these steps to clean your card:

1. Gently wipe with a soft, slightly damp, lint-free microfiber cloth.
2. Moisten a soft, microfiber cloth with isopropyl alcohol and gently wipe the card.

Don't use window or household cleaners, compressed air, aerosol sprays, solvents, ammonia, or abrasives to clean your titanium Apple Card.

Some fabrics, like leather and denim, might cause permanent discoloration that will not wash off.

How to safely store and carry your titanium Apple Card
● Store your titanium Apple Card in a wallet, pocket, or bag made of soft materials.
● Place your card in a slot in your wallet or billfold without touching another credit card. If two credit cards are placed in the same slot your card could become scratched.
● Don't place or store your titanium Apple Card card near magnets. If your card is placed close to a magnetic latch on a purse or bag, the magnetic strip can become demagnetized.
● Don't place your titanium Apple Card in a pocket or bag that contains loose change, keys, or other potentially abrasive objects.

Waiting for the inevitable $70 Apple Credit Card Carrying Case (not to be used with wallets, pants or purses)!

Well that sucks. As a fan of Apple, I think they should’ve done much better with the material. Guess I’ll have to keep this in my metal card holder for the majority of the time.
