MacBooks Air may also suffer from a stripping screen problem (#staingate), Apple recognizes

Many of you may have heard of #staingate, a critical issue that affects multiple generations of Apple laptops and can cause a layer of your screens peel with time.

At the end of last year, we reported here on the website that Apple stopped serving MacBooks Pro 2013 and 14 with this problem, but the recall (which, you will understand, in the public) all models from 2015 to 2017, as well as the late 12-inch MacBooks.

Now the MacRumors had access to internal Apple documents which acknowledge that the MacBook Air with Retina display it can also exhibit this same defect and, therefore, affected consumers must have their machines repaired or replaced.

The problem, according to Apple informed its stores and Authorized Service Centers, affects something related to the anti-glare layer of the screens.

We cannot say with certainty that the newly released MacBooks Air (with Magic Keyboard) will not present the problem, not least because it is too early for it to manifest itself in any unit, but it remains rooted that Apple has found and solved this defect of a once and for all.

If you have a MacBook (Air / Pro) featuring something similar to the photo at the top of this article, seek support from Apple immediately, as you may be entitled to free repair / exchange.
