    I just recently got an iPad 2 and I'm wondering how are you guys checking for dead pixels? I have two weeks to ensure that I have a perfect screen.

    Just use your iPad.

    If in the first 2 weeks you notice anything wrong with it, exchange it.

    Isn't this sort of unnecessary?. I mean, if you can't see them, what's the problem?

    Am I missing something? :D

    My advice to you is don't.

    Sorry for bumping this old thread, but I just bought the iPad 4. I downloaded those images and upon a close inspection, I don't notice any dead pixels. However, the iPad 4's retina display have much smaller pixels. Is there another way to definitively confirm that there are no dead pixels? I can't seem to zoom in any closer to possibly magnify things.

    I don't even know where to start...

    It's best to start at the pixel on the upper left corner. With over three million pixels, it's important to have an easy-to-remember starting point. A small drop of water on the retina display magnifies the pixels so that they are visible. Godspeed.
