    Not me personally, but two of my friends with the Space Gray MBP suffer from chipped and/or discoloured palm rests. Probably a reaction from body sweat and oil in constant contact with the area causing the chemically anodised coating to gradually uncover.

    I've had mine for about a year and there was no discolouration present. I didn't do anything super special and I didn't consciously try to keep my wrists away from the palm rest. At most I just clean my MBP at least once a week using a slightly damp cloth. My Space Gray MBP top case has since been replaced to address its keyboard problems.

    Regarding the battery replacement program for 13” non touchbar. Where did you guys have your battery replaced?
    I went to Powermac service center Glorietta 5 and they seem to be not aware of the issue, they even told me there’s a 2,500 diagnostic fee if no issue is found, ofcourse they won’t find anything since it’s a recall program (n)

    Anyone here having hardware issues with FaceTime?

    My FaceTime just decided one day to not work. Brought to apple and qcd (sg) their diagnosis is hardware.

    And the repair - replace the entire screen, which is SGD 600 + SGD150 service fee.

    Unfortunately, I did not get Apple Care and it's not part of the theater light replacement program. And it's not even 2 years old yet.

    I tried all those things and brought to Apple and QCD. Both said it's hardware issue.

    Not sure if anyone has encountered screen issues on their MBP 2016 lately. Earlier, I noticed that I needed to set the screen brightness to full in order to achieve the "normal" brightness level (I think this issue started a few months ago when I observed spotlight-like lights from the bottom of the screen).

    So I tried to check if there's a recent repair program for Macbook Pro 2016 and found this:
    https://support.apple.com/en-ph/13-inch-macbook-pro-display-backlight-service

    Need to visit an authorized service center in the coming days then. LCD + Keyboard + Battery replacement = almost new MBP 2016
