    iPhone 12 Pro Will a tempered glass ruin the flat aesthetic of the iPhone 12?

    For those who applied some kind of protection to their screen, like a tempered glass layer, does it ruin the flat aesthetic of the iPhone 12? I am just wondering as I find the flat surface really aesthetically pleasing. Is the extra layer creating an obvious bump?

    Dropped my mac-- flickering & broken screen

    I dropped my mac and now the screen is flickering and there is a white bar going from top to bottom. Is this fixable? If so, where is the best reasonable place to get this fixed? I hope it won't be too expensive to fix this issue.
