Inleiding

This guide will show you how to fix the “Staingate” issue on Apple MacBook displays. Staingate happens when the anti-reflective coating on certain models of MacBook displays begins to delaminate and wear off, causing a stain-like appearance that is noticeable when the screen is off, on a low brightness setting, or when sunlight is hitting the screen. Staingate is a very widespread issue, and many people unfortunately end up replacing the display or even the entire MacBook because of it. This guide will fix the Staingate issue and make the display look brand new.
