    My MBP retina screen at the end of 2016 suffers from an anti-reflective coating loss of the screen that starts to leave.
    It's just a point down the left but the problem starts after 6 months. I was showing it to the Apple Store Genuis and they agreed to take it under warranty and change the screen.
    The part in question is located above the keyboard which was protected from the first day by a micro fiber on the keyboard.

    The price was 641 € excluding tax.

    I've had a weird film issue on the touch bar of the 2016 tbMBP. I can't wipe it off with finger unless I used a soap damp cloth. It always comes back. The marks almost look like smudges whereas the normal look is matte.

    Maybe it was the micro fiber cloth. Anything that touches the screen can wear it, not matter how clean it seems.
