What’s causing the anti-reflective coating to wear off ?

Here is the list of specific reasons, which may cause this problem to appear:

  • Touching the display.

  • Oil and sweat from your fingers on your keyboard and trackpad can cause deterioration to the display when the lid is closed.

  • The heat dissipated from the CPU fan.

  • The pressure of the screen against the keyboard (e.g., in a crowded backpack).

  • Use of strong display cleaners.

Which models of MacBook may be affected by this anti-reflective coating issue?

I guess it would be easier to write down those that aren’t affected. But if you are wondering, here is the list (source):

  • MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2012),

  • MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2012),

  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, Early 2013),

  • MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2013),

  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2013),

  • MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2013),

  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2014),

  • MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2014),

  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, Early 2015),

  • MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2015),

  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016),

  • MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016),

  • MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017),

  • MacBook (12-inch, Early 2015),

  • MacBook (12-inch, Early 2016),

  • MacBook (12-inch, Early 2017).

Also, in case you are not aware, there is an ongoing Anti-Reflective Coating Repair Program for MacBooks not older than 4 years since the date of the original purchase.

In case you are not sure whether you’re eligible for the free repair, I would strongly recommend visiting an Apple store or your local retailer to see if they can help before you proceed to deal with this issue.

The anti-reflective layer on your MacBook/MacBook Pro can’t be repaired. The only options you have are to either replace the whole screen of your MacBook (Estimated $650 for assembly LCD with Housing) or to remove the damaged anti-reflective coating.
