I actually like the warm tint. It's similar to a Viewsonic monitor I have. It's different but I wouldn't say it's ugly and fortunately for me it's not distracting.
Hi, i've had the iPad 2 in my house (mothers), and the new iPad (mine) and after seeing this i decided to compare the two for the 'yellow/warm' tint you referred too.
After testing with both ipads & changing the brightness on both, i can confirm there is no yellow tint at all on my new ipad. However, the HD does come out clearer.
If it is yellow as you say, i would take it back to genius bar and have it looked at.
I still had my 2 when I got the new iPad, there was a huge difference but as long as I am not holding them next to each other, which I can't since selling the 2, it doesn't really bother me. I am as obsessive as many on here (not as bad as some) and I must have been very lucky my new iPad is great!
While I won't say all iPad 3s are supposed to have the exact same temperature (just meaning LCD displays tend to have some variance), it shouldn't be so noticeably yellow. Mine is definitely not yellow at all.
It's a bit subjective really, I would say my iPad 3 is warmer than the iPad 1, but then again the iPad 1 display was a little on the cool side.
So brighter means its better then, I couldn't use my iPad at max brightness, way too glaring and bright.
iPad 3rd gen
I wouldn't say my new iPad (3rd gen) is "warm" or yellow compared to my iPad 1. I'd say the iPad 1 was blueish and my new iPad is not blueish.
If it's really that yellow, I don't think you need advice from a forum full of strangers. You need to just see if you can exchange it, because it should not be yellow, which to me sounds far different than just being "warm".
Who said its supposed to be warmer? If yours is yellow to your eyes, it's yellow. Take it back. If you ask 100 people what their screen looks like, you will get 50+ different answers, none or which have any bearing on the iPad in your hands in front of your eyes.
Yellow is the new white as a Demi god has posted before.
If you see it , then no opinions really matter. Take it back and get it replaced. Yellow is not normal nor is any other tint.
My iPad 3 comes very close to matching the colors on my color calibrated monitor. This monitor is calibrated with a colorimeter on a weekly basis and I work on it several hours a day. This is what I am used to looking at, so it looks normal to me.
When I look at a iPad 2 or iPad 1, they look bluish to me. Compared my iPad 3 with my dad's iPad 1 and he said he much preferred his iPad 1 color, even if it was too blue. It is all a matter of what you are used to looking at.
Post a picture, I think my screen is lovely!
Get it replaced. I've seen yellow ones, pink ones, etc. There are good ones out there with neutral white levels and no yellowing.
This is my first iPad and based on the OP's concerns I was looking for yellowish tint. I found none other than what some have described as a warm color setting.
I even adjusted the brightness up and down on a white background and no yellow tint was visible. The only thing I notice is on website links that are typically a cool blue are now a slightly off blue leaning towards purple but even that is subtle. And it's the same as the Viewsonic monitor I previously referenced.
When I crank the displays brightness everything looks very white.
You shouldn't see purple. Your screen is probably one of the pink tinted ones.
My ipad 3 also matches the color calibration on my monitor. The whites are white, not blue-white.
Just to throw a proverbial cat amonst the pidgeons, I recently bought a refurb iPad 1 for my folks, and it had a distinctive yellow tint to it's screen.
To be honest I think it is actually quite nice. I'd choose it over a blue tint anyday.
I think the new iPad looks better.
To be honest neither seem to be in-correct - just different hues. If I was to be pushed I think personally I prefer the iPad 3 display.
it does have a bit of a tint to it..
