    Got screen replaced by Apple during Staingate, now my replacement screen is delaminating - Options?
    Went into apple for the screen delamination issue in 2017 and got a complimentary replacement as part of their recall for this issue.

    Fearing this could just happen again, I asked the guy, "what if this happens again?" And he assured me. "It won't happen again."

    Well, less than 24 months later and the screen is delaminating all along the borders yet again.

    Does anyone know if I have any options at my disposal with regards to Apple?

    Do you have Apple Care for it? Is it still covered? If so, they should replace it again.
    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.
    PS: When there is an accident or error, is the tool to blame or is the fool to blame?

    If you're out of warranty your options are quite limited. Could you specify which model macbook you have? Apple rightout refuses to work on my early 2013 model because its classified as ''vintage''. Even if they still want to work on your Macbook it will probably be around 400-500$ and searching for a replacement screen online will result in costs around 300$. I have however cleaned of the screen coating on another screen with metal polish before, takes time but removes all of the coating. Screen won't be 100% perfect however.
    What I did was keep looking online until an affordable screen came on the market. I bought a 15'' screen for a mid 2015 MacBook Pro retina and it fits on my early 2013 MacBook Pro retina just fine except for the webcam that doesn't work anymore but whatever I never use it.
    Hope this helps you

    "Delaminating" is an issue that plagues many laptops(as well as phones) with glass screens that use anti-reflective coatings. If you're out of warranty, one simple solution is to remove all of the coating with high % isopropyl alcohol. Not worth the cost of replacing the screen.

    Unfortunately the coating doesn't always come off with just isopropyl alcohol is seems to differ from screen to screen.
