Flexgate Class Action Lawsuit

Joe Rossignol:

A nationwide class action lawsuit filed against Apple in Northern California court this week accuses the company of knowingly concealing a defect with a display-related flex cable on recent 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro models.

[…]

Apple seemingly fixed the issue by extending the length of the flex cable by 2mm in the 2018 MacBook Pro. It also launched a free repair program in May 2019, but the program only applies to 13-inch MacBook Pro models released in 2016.

Update (2021-07-26): Juli Clover:

A class action lawsuit that Apple was facing over “Flexgate” issues affecting MacBook Pro displays has been dismissed by a California federal judge, reports Law360.

[…]

The judge overseeing the case said that because the defect appeared after the warranty period, Apple was not required to disclose it because it was not a safety issue.
