Apple MacBook Air with Retina Display may have Anti-Reflective Coating Issues

Previously, the list only included the MacBook and the MacBook Pro, so the Air is a new addition to this list.

Earlier this week, Apple acknowledged that its MacBook Air models with the Retina display can have issues with its anti reflective coating.

Apple began the fix program in October 2015 after some MacBook and MacBook Pro users experienced an issue with the anti-reflective coating wearing off or delaminating on Retina displays.

Apple Stores outside of China and many Apple Authorized Service Providers are closed right now, but customers can visit for service and support. In fact, this is an issue seen up and down Apple's entire line of Retina Display MacBooks, including the MacBook Pro and 12-inch MacBook - and this word has leaked out from Apple itself. The important note now is whether Apple is open to fixing the models that are affected for free.

The report states that Apple has long offered a fix program for this issue, but has done so quietly without explicitly outlining it on Apple websites.

Apple does have a free fix program for the MacBook Pro and MacBook that suffer from defective coating, but the MacBook Air has not been added to the list of eligible devices for free fix. However, the MacBook Air has yet to be appear on the list of devices that are covered by it, according to MacRumors. Although, the move was never explicitly publicized as the company wished to manage the problem under the rugs. We don't know which MacBook Air models are affected, and we can only hope it's not the MacBook Air 2020 model that was just announced last week.
