What Is Flexgate
Flexgate has been a term coined to describe a problematic issue with the newer MacBook Pro’s & airs displays that was first observed in 2016 models. Specifically, the display flex cables in certain models of MacBook laptops are prone to failure, resulting in a “stage light” effect where the bottom of the screen appears to have a bright strip across the bottom. This issue has resulted in some MacBook users having to pay for for full screen replacements of their laptops.
