iFixit: the screen of the new MacBook should not be opened at an angle of more than 90 degrees

The flash mob has started on Twitter . It is connected with the fact that the display cable of the new MacBook Pro wears out quickly and tears when the cover is opened and closed at a large angle, making the computer unusable.


On new MacBook Pros, according to iFixit , the backlight power cable is set too short, so when you open the laptop lid at an angle of more than 90 degrees, it eventually grinds on the internal components of the computer, breaks and stops functioning normally. In previous models there is no such problem.

Recommendation not to open the computer at an angle greater than 90 degrees
Since the cable is part of the display design, the replacement costs $ 600, since the entire module must be replaced. users have launched a petition calling for Apple to change the warranty loop.

Apple has not yet commented on the situation, but it is known that the thread on the official website’s forum on this issue has somehow disappeared .
