    Is it possible to burn the screen in on this 2016+ MBPs?

    Accidentally left the screen on the same Safari page overnight and a bit worried since it cost me close to $4K for the unit here in Canada.

    Still under the buyers remorse policy from Apple.

    Burn in only happens on OLED displays (as far as I know) which the MacBook main screen is not. The Touch Bar is OLED though. I don't think the Touch Bar stays on long enough (unless there is a way to not have it dim automatically) to have an issue with burn in though.

    One night probably won’t cause problems, but try setting your screen shutoff time to Never in system preferences to see the warning macOS generates.
