    Good afternoon, guys!
    Its been a very long time since I posted in this group
    I am sure glad it is still around after all these years ;-)

    Guys, I have a problem with the screen of my MBP 13-inch
    The bottom part of the screen is getting darker and darker
    Is this a software or hardware issue?

    Can I get it fixed?
    Or is it time for a new MBP?

    Thanks

    That is more than likely to be hardware issue or more specifically an issue with your display. My 2017 MBP (13-inch) suffered from the same problem back in 2018 and the fix performed by Beyond the Box at the time was to replace the display assembly.

    I'm not sure how much this would cost you outside of warranty if this problem is not part of a repair program.
