Is this the anti-reflective coating wearing off?

    I have AC on this mid 2014 macbook pro but it expires in October, so I am just wondering if this is worth taking it in to get (possibly) repaired. Any ideas if this is what they cover? It's right around the camera in the top bezel.

    If you have AppleCare, definitely make a Genius Bar appointment and have them check it out. Not sure what the criteria is for a display replacement; however, Apple has acknowledged issues with the antireflective coating.

    Good luck!

    That happened to my old 2012 retina MBP - it has AppleCare and they replaced it no questions asked. Good luck with your appt!

    Well my MacBook pro is heading off for repair! They also replaced my frayed magsafe 2 adapter for free. All in all a excellent experience!

    Great news! That has been my general experience with Apple Support on the few occasions I have had to had a machine/ device repaired. Enjoy!
