Dancing designs at every cost sometimes do not cause the problems that can last. As evidenced by the renowned iFixit repair blade, the MacBook Pro laptop with a padding path is always fabulous for fads. The latter was the so-called "flexgate", which is associated with low reliability of flexible cables and causes many problems with the display and cannot be easily stored.
It is clear that all products are made on a MacBook Pro shade that are inextricably opposed to various quality management practices. And it's good if the company has frankly acknowledged it, to provide the existing users with repair or replacement of computers. However, most people do not expect them to use a expensive professional laptop that costs several thousand dollars. Problems such as the keyboard (sometimes corrected by Apple), poor hard drive, such as dubious battery life and livelihood, make clear an image of the & # 39; defect & # 39; a MacBook Pro design.
According to iFixit's Taylor Dixon, the "flex" problem is quite common: in today's generation of MacBook Pro laptops (from 2016 to the present), flexible ribbon blade cables are used around the screen & # 39; to connect a control bridge underneath the tape panel. Loops are wrapped around the board and secured with a few frostbones. Each time you open and close a laptop, they are highlighted. Over a fairly short time draw the cables and break. First of all, the backlight usually falls out, causing it to hear phased light symptoms (flicker) and eventually displaying the screen when the laptop opens more than 40 °.
From a design point, everything must be perfect, but the devil, as always, is in great detail. Apple chose danced, fragile cables, like service against the thick wire that is used in earlier models, so you can't scratch, but continue, to reduce the load of & # 39; ; reduce coverage. But the main problem is that in the effort to make the scene as difficult as possible, Apple used the non-modular design of & # 39; e cables, making them an integral part of a display that cannot be replaced separately. This means that when you start running loops (and this will happen), you have to replace the entire display instead of one or two small cables, which makes the $ 6 problem in a $ 600 catastrophe.

Unsurprisingly, Apple has shown an exemplary sluggishness in working a serious problem that it has been struggling with and has no options for correcting the situation with concerned people. In most cases, "flexgate" appears to a one-year warranty. Several specific people could get their local Genius Bar service to replace the screen. But, it seems, for all successful, many more of those who had refused repairs and had to pay for the new screen, did not understand how & # 39; the problem is wide. Several people claim to open thread on an Apple Support Site, but they have been deleted. Users and petition applied and asked Apple to start an extended warranty program as soon as possible.
Currently, this only applies to the generation of MacBook Pro with TouchBar touch panel. When Taylor Dickson explains, the new MacBook Air has designed a small other screen cable, but it may seem like a similar vulnerability – it also flips a box and appears part of a display.
