Notes » How I Resolved the Anti-Reflective Coating Issue on My MacBook Pro

✍🏻 2020.11.28

My early-2015 MacBook Pro has started experiencing some Apple computers' well-known issue about the anti-reflective coating quite some time ago. Apple itself has confirmed the problem and decided to let its users enjoy an appropriate treatment. However, my laptop is considered too old, so I had to take him to an Apple repair center and pay a lot of money to fix it. Surfing the Net, I found some users had tried home-made (and risky) solutions, using the most disparate chemical agents we all have in our homes. Since the issue caused an awful experience when using the MacBook with a low level of screen brightness, I decided to try one of these methods. In particular, I used baking soda and water, as suggested in this article, and it worked.

These are photos of the screen before the treatment:

If you experience the same problem with your Apple computer and take responsibility for your actions, you could try it. In my case, it was a success.
