    I have a launch 15" rMBP and the IR is getting worse, it takes less than 2 minutes for significant image retention. Will apple fix it?

    ps. I've extended my applecare already

    Yep. They'll swap the panel for a Samsung or an LG SJA2.

    Thanks, I was worried due to previous rumours/cases about Apple saying IR wasn't a real problem and stopped swapping display panels.

    As long as you can reproduce it (especially in 2 mins) they'll be fine. Having AppleCare will help too ;).

    I had mine replaced with the SJA2 LG panel - it's been flawless.
