Apple’s responses to this issue have varied from case to case. Some have received a response that this is ” only a cosmetic issue ,” while others have seen the MacBook Pro repaired under AppleCare’s warranty. There have been isolated cases of this defect for some time, but it seems that much more is happening lately .

It is “normal” for these spots to appear unobtrusively on some edges of the screen. But there are cases, as in the following image, that are much more serious:

So far, about 200 users have organized on the Staingate.org website in search of a collective solution from Apple, and encourage anyone with the same problem to register on the website by uploading photos of their specific case.

Thank you to all of you who have told us the news!
