People who are too much concerned about privacy and they are having camera cover on MacBook Air, MacBook, or MacBook Pro, then there are chances of laptop’s display damaging in case you close the notebook with that cover on. Apple included this information earlier this month on their official site’s support page.

The iPhone maker said that if you close your laptop with a camera cover, then due to the clearance in between the keyboard and display, the damage chances can lead.

For the users who feel that they are comfortable with the camera cover on and wants it to keep on all the time, then apple has a recommendation. In such cases, Apple recommends that choose the one with no thicker than the average piece of printer paper (0.1mm). Also, doesn’t leave adhesive residue. It will help those users who feel to keep camera cover on almost all the time.
