Apple extends free repair program for 2013-2015 MacBook Pro

Apple has reportedly extended its free repair program for 2013-2015 MacBook Pro units with anti-reflective coating issues. A leaked internal document reveals the company has now authorized free repairs for four years from the notebook’s original purchase date.

Some customers discovered that after extended use, the anti-reflective coating on the display cover glass could wear away. The problem became widely reported in early 2015, and Apple eventually launched a free repair program that October to rectify the issue.

Free repairs for everyone

Now that program has been extended, according to MacRumors. Both 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro units manufactured in 2013, 2014, or 2015 are eligible for a free coating repair for up to four years after the machine’s original purchase date.


If you have an eligible MacBook Pro with an anti-reflective coating issue, you can arrange a free repair by visiting the Genius Bar at your local Apple Store, or an Apple Authorized Service Provider.

These are the notebooks that qualify, and when coverage ends based on the date each one was discontinued:

  • 2013 13-inch MacBook Pro: July 2018
  • 2013 15-inch MacBook Pro: July 2018
  • 2014 13-inch MacBook Pro: March 2019
  • 2014 15-inch MacBook Pro: May 2019
