It generally appears on bottom of the screen and is being termed as “the stage light effect”.

According to a popular repair website, iFixit this issue is caused because of flimsy and fragile cable which connects the LED with display controller. Apparently, older generations were having more sturdy cables and thus, this issue never appeared.

As per the website : “The issue is fairly simple, the display uses a thin flexible cable to connect the display with the motherboard, which gets teary and damaged really soon. After a while the “stage light” problem starts appearing.”

But, what’s even worse is the fact that this cable is integrated with the display unit and hence can not be repaired. So, you have to get the complete LED display unit replaced which costs around 500$ .
