Model 3 Screen Corners Fading

The screen on my Model 3 has developed some slight fading at the top corners of the screen. Just curious if anyone else has seen this. Wondering if this is similar to the screen yellowing I’ve read about on older Model S cars.

Yikes! I wonder if this would be considered a warranty item. I have not seen this personally, but my car is only 1.5 years old (manufactured 11/19). Do you know your car's manufacture date? Also, how many miles are you at?
My Model 3 is about to hit 3 years and 1 month since I got it. I've gotta look at the screen in some different lighting conditions as well as day vs night mode to see how the corners look. Considering putting in a service request if it starts to get worse.

I have a 9/2018 and will take a look at mine tomorrow during the day. Can’t say I’ve noticed anything though. Driveway kept and use cabin overheat protection during out hotter months.

With other mfgrs trying to copy Tesla with larger in-car screens it will be interesting to see over the coming years how everyone’s screens do.
I have this problem too. It is due to the temperature and the screen is separating with the glass surface. I dont know if they will replace it, still under new car warranty. If anyone got theirs replaced, please post. Also looks like while the sunroof is glass, too much heat is making into the car and needs blinders in the front and the top.
