A group of Apple users have begun a campaign against the quality of the anti-reflective coating found on MacBook displays. It would appear that the issue stems from the coating becoming scratched or peeling off after a certain amount of time. While the problem has been known since 2013, it was only recently that Apple users began to vent their frustration over the matter.
MacBooks sold between 2012 and today have been known to suffer from the anti-reflecting coating becoming damaged from a variety of reasons. Some has been the fault of the user as third party cleaning solutions or microfiber cloths were used, but an even larger portion of damage was caused simply by pressure from the keys and trackpad while the display is closed.
What really annoys these Apple fans is that while the one year warranty covers them for replacements, the issue keeps appearing even after the device is replaced. Those that suffer the damage after their warranties have ended were left paying hundreds of American dollars for repairs.
While the complaints had originally taken place over Apple Support Communities and Facebook, an unofficial website has appeared for affected users to upload pictures of their damaged machines. The movement is asking Apple for a free repair programme to correct the problem when it appears, although to be fair, it is unlikely that Apple will be moved over the few hundred users who have uploaded their stories.
