Hi. I believe I have 1 dead pixel on my iPad. It is located on the left of the iPad when its held in portrait mode. I have scheduled a Genius Bar appointment. Do you think they will replace the iPad if it has one dead pixel? I would like this replaced as I like to keep my apple devices perfect. If I see a flaw, I can't ignore it.

I'm generally like that too, but if it's one dead pixel (which I have as well), I actually have to look for it. I don't think they will replace it based upon that, but I'd you have a cluster of dead pixels, they may.

Not that I'm doubting you but I really would like to see a picture. I have never ever seen a dead pixel on any iPad ever so I'm curious as to how "noticeable" it would be. Especially when the pixels are so dense. :D

Beyond that, just make an appointment at the Genius Bar. What's the worst that can happen? ;)

It's really hard for me to take a picture of a dead pixel. It looks like one dead pixel to me, but it can be more since this iPad has a retina display. I made an appointment at the Genius Bar.

When did you purchase it?
I purchased it in November 2012

I just wanted to see what it would look like. Anyway, hope they decide to replace yours!
