    iPad Pro iPad Pro 10.5 yellow bands across the edges

    Hi everybody, does anyone know if it’s normal for iPads to develop this kind of yellowness across the edges with age? I bought it in 2017-2018 and now it looks like this. I have reduced highlights on a photo a bit so you can see the yellowness better. Any help appreciated!

    Yesterday I went to the Apple store enquiring for a replacement of a smart keyboard folio for my Ipad Pro M1 12.9-inch that I purchased 150 days ago because the tissue started peeling off (see pic). The tech there told me right away that this should not have happened and that they could replace...

    All iPads Best note taking app?

    I’m starting my PhD and looking for a note taking app for my new iPad Air. And since I’ll also be using my MacBook, I’d like the notes to sync so that it doesn’t matter which device I’m using or have in class.
