    This A1398 is starting to develop dead pixels. How long would this screen last ? the only option ?

    Replacing the screen is the only option is you are sure it is the screen and not software-related.

    Looks like screen is cracked, it's not a GPU issue.
    Which model/year ?

    Most likely the screen, if not the screen then in some cases it could be the video card to screen connection that's loose, but if the screen is cracked, that's most likely the screen.

    I wouldn't, there is some fakes around, also sheets under smashed LCD can be defective, it's not like normal PC screen, waste of time and money
