    There are about 5 air bubbles spread out on the Macbook screen. Most of the time they aren't noticeable but sometimes I can notice 2-3 of them. When the screen is turned off they are all noticeable. Is there a way to fix this?

    How did the air bubbles get there in the first place? Do you have a screen protector you neglected to mention?

    No there's no screen protection.
    I think it's been there since the beginning (about 3 and a half weeks ago) but I've just recently noticed it.

    The only thing I can think of is to take apart the panel and reassemble it, but that I would suggest taking it to Apple.

    Disregard myself, tried my best to get the bubbles. I made sure to clean the screen with a mircofiber cloth before I took the pictures. I may be overreacting, is there anything to worry about?

    Looks more like smudges. Also can you put on a shirt?

    the same thing happened to my iPhone. I took it in and they replaced it.
