Removing the Glass Panel

1. Apple strongly recommends wearing clean lint-free gloves whenever handling the glass panel. The gloves protect the glass panel from body oils, dirt, and other contaminants. Put on a pair of clean gloves with the rubberized-side of the gloves on the palm side of your hand.
