According to an internal note our colleagues at MacRumors were able to get their hands on, MacBook repairs with an anti-glare coating problem will take longer, due to a support requesting a mailing now.
This concern, which affects various models of MacBook 12 ″ and MacBook Pro from 2015 to 2017, causes display oddities on the screen. Apple will pay for the repair free of charge, provided the affected MacBook model is one of the following:
- MacBook Pro (13-inch, Early 2015)
- MacBook Pro (15-inch, mid 2015)
- MacBook Pro (13 inch, 2016)
- MacBook Pro (13 inches, 2016)
- MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017)
- MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017)
- MacBook (12-inch, early 2015)
- MacBook (12-inch, early 2016)
- MacBook (12-inch, early 2017)
Remember that to know the model information of your Mac computer, just click on the apple in the top left, then choose “About this Mac”.
Until now, the support from the deposit of the machine in Apple Store or at an authorized reseller until its recovery in normal operating condition could last less than a week.

There is no indication for what reason the Californian giant applied this change in the procedure. Perhaps spare parts stocks are tight in these times of a pandemic.
In any case, be aware that you can normally still take advantage of this free replacement if you experience these types of problems on your Mac:
