    Here is what you have to do:
    - place one hand on each side of the iPad
    - start twisting carefully, as if you were wringing a wet towel, until you see liquid distortions within the screen
    - repeat on each side until the yellow tint is gone
    Your Ipad should be fixed now!

    You know, some people may actually believe you. You should be careful what you post.

    I can hear that future Genius appointment dialog now.
    "But I read on MacRumors that was exactly what I was supposed to do."

    And how many pictures of cracked screens do you figure we will see before this thread is thrown into the Wasteland? :confused:

    I don't know. Based on some posts I've read, I can see at least 3 or 4 cracked screens in the very near future... ;)

    I didn't tell anyone to break anything. The Ipad will not break if you twist it slightly.

    I didn't expect it to be fixed while taking a hot bath experimenting to find a solution for a failure thousands of customers are suffering from. So no "before" pictures.

    A hue/sat bump in photoshop would seem to indicate you still have plenty of yellow tint, on the left, where it always is.
    Maybe the twisting accidentally boosted the brightness.

    You just turned the iPad sideways. :confused:

    This is still yellow at the bottom. The colors are quite uneven if you compare top to bottom. Do you have a before pic?

    I just took the word of this unknown, but well meaning troll and sure enough, it's a Christmas miracle!!! I now have spider cracks all over the screen, but when viewed 62.45 degrees off axis horizontally, the cracks appear to form an image of the Virgin Mary!! Wahoooooooo what a post!

    well that may be but it is not noticeable to my eye anymore. My guess is that some of the sides is installed to tight so the screen has to losen up a bit not to give those yellow tints and book spines.

    edit: but what do I know? I replaced twice my Ipad Air. Genius at the bar said that many ppl are returning their Ipads cause of this. I don't guarantee that it will work for you, obviously it worked for me somehow, but the Ipad won't break doing this 100%.

    It's a nice theory but if it were tight, you would see major light bleeds along the sides. There are some people with light bleeding, but lots with yellow tint and no bleeding.

    I heard that if you dip your iPad in tomato sauce and bake it at 325 degrees for 20 minutes, it will take care of the yellow tint...

    (the preceding has been a sarcastic comment and should not be considered an endorsement of baking as a solution to iPad screen problems. Do not try this at home. If you do, you do so at your own risk, and this poster nor Macrumors can be held liable for your inability to comprehend sarcasm and your willingness to damage your iPad based on something posted on the internet.

    I hate to say it, but there is some logic to what's being said. There was an issue with iMac screens shadowing on the edges that was caused by the screen being over tightened. The fix was to loosen the screws a notch.

    And if the iPad had screws, maybe the logic might hold. But being these things are glued and the casing is quite stiff, you are BEGGING to crack the screen with this so called "fix".
