Much has been written about the fact that the MacBook Pro after 2015 has become too “tender” . But if until today the keyboard was considered the most vulnerable point of the models, then over time a more global problem emerged.
MacBook Pro 2016, 2017 and 2018 have a serious problem – the display. And to be more precise, the display loop.
Every time you open and close the laptop, the train lends itself to light loads. Over time, the loop is frayed and the display simply stops working.
Considering that after the redesign, the first generation MacBook Pro just turned two years old, the lifespan of the display for a laptop for $ 1000 and above is too small.
This problem, judging by the disassembly of iFixit, has affected all Pro-models of laptops, starting in 2016. Among the models with a constructional problem are both 13-inch and 15-inch macbooks.
The victims have already created a petition on the site change.org . If you encounter a similar problem, do not forget to subscribe.
The defect itself was conditionally called #flexgate. If it turns out that the problem affects most owners of MacBook Pro 2016 and newer, Apple faces a big scandal. [ FlexGate ]
