In 2015, an issue with MacBook Retina displays was reported, the persistent problems with the anti-reflective coating wearing off, which eventually came to be known as "Staingate." Although only some customers have experienced the issue as early as 2012, Apple has already started covering the repair for free of charge.  Now, it seems that Apple has extended this coverage even further.

Apple Making Effort In Fixing MacBook Retina Issue

According to 9to5Mac, Apple's quality program will be extending throughout October of this year, or even possibly longer, depending on the purchase date for eligible machines. Originally, this issue was going to be covered either up to three years from the date of purchase or up to a year after October 2015, whichever scenario was longer.

The report also noted that the update to the said quality program has not been officially announced by Apple, and it seems like they are actually not planning to. This issue originally gained Apple's attention, as well as getting popular after the website staingate.org was dedicated to tracking affected MacBooks, along with having a dedicated Facebook group.
