My Mac has #flexgate and Apple said this! What should I do?
I just went to Apple service centre to discuss about my mac’s display replacement cost estimate and other options. Prerequisites: my mac’s display suffer from #flexgate. So I asked which new display assembly unit are they gonna use to replace my mac’s faulty display and they answered: we will use the same display of 2017 model compatible with your Mac and it will have 90 days warranty. Then I said: what’s the point in getting 90 days warranty if when I purchased my Mac, my default mac’s display lasted about 1.5 years and obviously the #flexgate issue won’t happen in next 90 days if I repair my Mac. So, the repair agent agreed to this. But, now I was surfing ifixit parts section and stumbled upon this link: MacBook Pro 13" Retina (Late 2016-2017) Display Assembly
The item in this link says compatibility of the unit with models till 2019. So, does that mean I can use 2018 model MacBook Pro display assembly to replace my mac’s display assembly taking into consideration that ifixit’s research showed that 2018 models have 2 mm longer flex cable to prevent #flexgate issue ?
Questa è una buona domanda?
