    I have a MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and it's just two months outside of original one year warranty. I'm starting to notice an issue with the display. I don't know what to call it. Tearing or artifacting..I can see it on a black background. I've attached a photo to help. It shows up all the time but you can really only see it on black background. What is this called and can it be fixed??

    13" or 15"? The pixel distortion pattern doesn't change when moving the screen back and forth or when using different programs? Was the unit dropped or exposed to liquids? This happened suddenly or slowly over time?

    That looks like a lot of bright pixels, if you are in Europe thatshould be fixed under consumer law you may not have as much luck in the America’s.

    You can confirm that's the screen itself and not the coating on the screen correct?

    Good catch. Looks a lot like the ongoing staingate issue
