    What year is your macbook?
    Maybe it’s still covered with this program:

    Apple extends free repairs of anti-reflective coating on certain MacBooks

    You can visit Powermac to have it checked.
    I’m using a 2015 15” Macbook Pro and I had mine replaced last January at no cost.

    Can this be considered as staingate? Tanggal yun coating and madami pa mga parang dots galing sa edges ng keys habang tumatagal.

    Had my early 2015 replaced twice already and BTB still honored the warranty. Nowadays I put a small piece of thin cloth or paper in between the screen and the keyboard when I close it and haven't seen any issues so far.

    Brought my MBP 2015 yesterday evening at PMC Glorietta 5, for the staingate issue and swelling battery. Got an email today that they are done with diagnosis and order of parts (topcase with battery and display) where approved by Apple.

    Do you guys think that MBP mid-2014 is still covered by this?

    I think so, mine was covered last year when i was in Middle East and i'm the technician who replaced this Displace Assembly with the Anti-Reflective issue, but better verify it with PowerMac Center or BTB if still covered on Anti-Reflective...Article TP1406 Determining Anti-Reflective Coating Issues...I hope this help...:)

    Upgraded my MBP currently and this time, won't be using a screen protector. I'm so relieved that local Apple reseller stores are acknowledging staingate issues.

    Had all our retina 13" MBPs assessed by Senco (via serial number). Only 3 passed for the staingate issue (all 2016 models), pending visual inspection.

    Sir, check with Beyond The Box stores. I brought mine there and took about 3-4 weeks to get it back. Covered pa ng apple yung time na yun so I just paid for the diagnostic fee but the replacement of screen is free.
