Apple has extended its 13-inch MacBook Pro Display Backlight Service Program to five years. In May 2019, the company launched a service program to address 'Flexgate' display issues.

The program applies to devices sold between October 2016 and February 2018 that experience the following issues:
● Display backlight continuously or intermittently shows vertical bright areas along the entire bottom of the screen
● Display backlight stops working completely

To identify your computer's model and to see if it is eligible for this program, choose Apple () menu > About This Mac. Eligible models are listed below.
● MacBook Pro (13-­inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
● MacBook Pro (13-­inch, 2016, Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports)

The initial program covered eligible MacBook Pro models for 4 years after the first retail sale of the unit. The program has now been expanded to cover eligible MacBook Pro models for 5 years after the first retail sale of the unit or 3 years from the start date of this program, whichever is longer.
