    My iphone 6s Plus is much warmer than my iphone 6 plus. And it's been bothering me as well. So when I picked up the pro, I looked to make sure there wasn't a yellow tint, I noticed there is on the bottom half of the screen. Picked it up today. Anyone with a yellow tint?

    It could be the adhesive hasn't cured. Give it 6 or 7 days to see if it fades. You have until January 8 to return it, so you have lots of time.

    I have had two iPad Pros and they both have had half yellow screens on the top half. The second one is not nearly as bad as the first. Also, the second came from week 40 whereas the first was from week 41. Maybe because it's older the adhesive has dried more? If that's even a thing, I dunno. Maybe it's coincidence (shrug), I'm waiting to see.

    (I had to return the first one because it came from the online store and I forgot to add my education discount. Apparently they couldn't just refund me the difference, I had to physically return the unit and purchase a second one to get the discount.)

    I also have two iPad Pros with uneven screens. The bottom half seems whiter/brighter than the top half.

    They both have the same problem while having a different screen tint. One has a cooler tint the other has a warmer tint. So with the warmer tint the whites look a bit like yellow because brightness is less. At least that's what I think.

    I don't think there're iPad Pros with a perfectly even screen. Will have a look in the stores next week. But from my experience with iPads and other Apple products, i've never seen a perfectly even screen.

    These modern screens do not have adhesive to "cure". This is something that comes up everytime about uneven tints and it's perpetuation is nothing more than an misinformation I'm afraid. However the screens often DO change a bit over time and this is due to the heating/cooling cycles of using the screen, and then being off for a while etc. My understanding is this changes the pressure on a tiny level at various parts of the screen layer sandwich and this can cause a screen to improve or get worse as it ages over the first 100 hours. I have certainly seen changes with my iPhone 6S plus from new, some for the better and some worse. You should also evaluate, even an LED backlit LCD screen after 30 minutes of being on as they do change a bit as they warm-up too. Eizo make self calibrating LED backlit LCD monitors but enforce a warm-up period before entering self calibration due to this.

    My IPP has a yellow tint on the top quarter of the screen. It's annoying as the rest of the screen is a cool white. It messes with colors and causes things to get washed out. It's not good. I have a couple new IPP's that will be coming my way to swap out with. I will pick the best of the two. Hopefully one of them is good.

    I did check the Apple store demos and there were two uniform screens on display out of the four I looked at. The two space gray models had yellow in the top right corner.

    Can you maybe post a picture of the yellow tint for comparison?

    I have the same issue with my old iPad Air. It will not go away over time. I had 3 replacements with the same issue and give up and keep the one with the best screen.
    Now I bought the pro and I have a flawless screen. I am really happy ^.^

    The settings screen is not a good way to demonstrate the problem because the left column is intentionally cream coloured while the right column is pure white!! I hope that people realise they are not meant to look the same. It would be much better to post either a full white screen using one of the many screen testing apps, or even display the calendar with the year display, which does have an all white background.

    I would love to see a picture of your screen. if it is really flawless I will have a reason again to do the display lottery.

    This yellow tint is not easy to photograph. Trust me I know how a yellow screen looks. Everytime i read here in the forum with my iPad Air I see this yellow tint on it. Now with the Ipp the screen is everywhere even in tint and brightness.

    Edit:
    Ok here's a picture with Procreat in background. In real it looks more even in brightness.

    Not sure where you got that mis information but that's incorrect. The settings screen should be white, no matter which side you're looking at. Always has been.

    No I am right. Two iPads here....on both of them, the left side the buttons are cream coloured and the right they are white. It stays consistently this way around if I turn the iPad the other way around so it's intentional, not a display issue. No misinformation....fact!

    Just got an iPad pro, 10% off and 5% red card for $730 after tax for base 32.

    i am trying to maybe get an exception made to return my air 2even though its 2 months out instead of 30 day return policy.

    i got a 64 gig wifi for $430 after tax.

    The left hand collumn (Settings) appears as a cream shade on both our ipads also. Not a huge colour shift but its noticeable once you spot it. Its actually rather unappealing to look at when the brightness is lower.

    I wonder why they never rectified this as it does tend to confuse users thinking it is a hardware fault when in actuality seems to be software related

    I personally hate how washed out a warmer screen can look but i know others who hate a cooler screen tone.

    Side by side i can see the difference however as you mention it is not really an issue for you when using on its own. It may even become a preference.

    Love how huge it stands beside the A2

    I already returned it. It was chipped near volume buttons too.

    And lack of native resolution for some basic apps I use was pretty meh.
    Netflix namely and HBO go.

    I'm sure it'll get updates but I can't pass on a jail broken air2 with a great screen.

    Almost would be spending double for half the capacity, the tablet is a toy/consumption item for me

    Same here. I knew instantly i would have buyers remorce with the pro once the novelty of the size factor was no more. My air 2 (For Me) does everything the pro can do albeit on a reduced form factor.
    That said i can definately see the appeal for anyone who scetches, takes many notes or edits doccuments ie' pro users, students etc, for these users the pro comes into its own...

    My air2 is mainly a consumption device and is great for its purpose. I am not an artist nor do i use it for editing, annotation, spread etc if these were my needs then i would go for a pro all day long

    Sorry but you're incorrect. It has NEVER been that way. My iPad settings are WHITE on my iPad Mini. When I turn my IPP so the top yellow is on the right, my settings are now white and the right side is yellow. Flip it back around and boom, left side settings is now yellow, right side white. So no, it's not the way it's suppose to be.


    It's hardware for me, not software.

    I don't know what more to say to you. Another poster has already confirmed what I stated just a few posts up. I can't help it if you can't see what is there! It's on my iPhone 6s Plus that way too when seeing the settings in portrait

    Uniform all over. No cream or yellow. Perhaps it's because your devices suffer the same issue and you never noticed it.

    My point being, this photo compared to my IPP, clearly my IPP has too much yellow on the left/top of the screen. That's my point. It's not normal.

    I am not saying you don't have a problem. But in the screenshot you just posted I can see the buttons on the left are not the same shade of white as the buttons on the right! This may just be the way you see things. I have a very very sensitive colour vision that can often see uniformity errors on screens that others just cannot see.

    Anyway, like I said, you may have a real issue, and all I was saying was that the settings screen was not the best way to evaluate it...that's all
