    Hi guys I would love your input on this...

    So I was cleaning my screen the other day and noticed some markings near the webcam. I thought that they were oil smudges at first, but they won't come off and I suspect the coating is coming off. Has anyone had any experience with this and with how apple will handle it? I have about 7 months left on my apple care and while it is not bothersome right now, I am afraid it will spread to the part of the screen I actually use.

    p.s I have not used any cleaners on my screen ever. The only thing I have tried is a microfiber cloth dampened with some distilled water (but not "wet"). My guess is that it is near where I open/close the case so perhaps the oils from my skin caused it. I feel like that is something that should be covered as normal wear/tear since it certainly was not abused in any way.

    Just posting here first until I have a chance to drop by an apple store.

    Any input would be great

    The only thing you can do is ask Apple. They might refuse a repair as they can claim wear and tear, but they might not. But will likely spread based on other peoples experiences.

    In this thread (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1624907) the individual managed to get it replaced. Good luck!

    Thanks for the link, that is exactly what mine looks like! I guess I'll just have to take it in to apple and see what they say
