MacBook Air models with Retina displays may have anti-reflective coating issues (Updated)

The 2018 MacBook Air with Retina Display.

Updated on 29 March: Apple has informed MacRumors that the MacBook Air, Retina or otherwise, is not part of the Quality Program for the MacBook and MacBook Pro, and does not exhibit anti-reflective coating issue.

The company also clarified that it was a mistake on the internal memo that has since been fixed. However, MacRumors received information from a technician at an Apple Authorized Service Provider that some 2018 MacBook Air models have been serviced due to the anti-reflective coating issues.

Originally reported on 27 March

MacBook Air models with Retina displays could exhibit anti-reflective coating issues according to an Apple memo shared with its Authorised Service Providers and obtained by MacRumors.

The memo states that the company has acknowledged that the MacBook Air with Retina display can exhibit the same issue that plagued MacBook and MacBook Pro users in 2015.

The free repair program for the anti-reflective coating issue is not published on Apple's website, but Authorised Service Providers and its support team have been handling the matter quietly. With retail stores outside of China closed indefinitely, customers have to visit support.apple.com for assistance.
