We've also heard from several people that their Polishing Cloths are on the way. The $19 Polishing Cloth is one of Apple's most constrained items at the current time and orders placed today will not arrive until well into January. Stores are not carrying the Polishing Cloth at this time, and it is not clear if retail locations will have stock tomorrow.
