iPad Mini causes problems again: Did Apple save at the wrong end?

The criticism of the new iPad Mini continues: After the jelly scrolling effect caused displeasure, some owners are now reporting discolorations when pressure is applied to the display. This is usually only known from much cheaper entry-level tablets.

For Apple, the matter is clear: The jelly scrolling effect is a normal behavior of LC displays, according to the US group in a recent statement. It remains to be seen whether one shares this view. The latest quirk of the sixth generation of the iPad Mini is likely to be anything but normal.

iPad Mini 6: Discoloration and distortion when printing on the display

Owners of the new iPad Mini report unsightly discoloration and distortion when they exert pressure on the display (source: Reddit). A video documents what this looks like in practice:

The person concerned from the video assures that only a slight pressure was exerted and that the effect occurs particularly clearly when the iPad is in dark mode. Clearly visible: The discoloration and distortion do not appear at the respective pressure points, but slightly above.

The reactions to Reddit are accordingly. Some users report, for example, that they no longer want to buy the new iPad Mini. Others accuse Apple of using poor quality displays.

What makes the iPad Mini so special is shown in the video :

Such effects are more common with cheap tablets

Such effects are actually not uncommon - but usually occur more in inexpensive entry-level tablets . Although the iPad Mini 6 is not a bargain, it is comparatively affordable by Apple standards.

For the RRP of 549 euros, buyers get a modern design, USB-C, support for the Apple Pencil 2 and the powerful A15 processor. In view of this configuration, Apple may have saved something on the display in order not to have to set the price of the new iPad Mini too high .

In any case, such discolorations and distortions do not occur on my much more expensive iPad Pro.
