Hi Guys,

Just wanted to understand here, so I despite taking all the care because of the fear of not getting a bent iPad Pro 11"

I waited and waited for close to around 7-8 months before I decided to take the plunge and I decided to buy a latetst month Manufacturing date device which was available at that point of time which was June-2019, so despite taking all these precautions and care, there is something that did come out unpleasant out of the Pandora's box. Though I am happy I have got an absolute flat, not even a little bent device. With no backlight bleeding or anything, so in that sense it is a perfect device but I feel it has got a tad warmer displays compared to the one I have seen in the Apple Stores. I am in India, So Apple does not allow exhanges or refunds for these kind of issues here. What I wanted to know is there any test, any app any digaonastoc tool to check if the display of your device is perfect or how much cool or how much warm it is ? And it is just not a figment of my imagination and not an illusion ? What do I do now? I am not saying the display is totally warm yellow, but it is a tad yellow, some would call it very neutral than what Apple mormally offers the Blueish-White cooler looking displays. But I much prefer those kind of dolisplays. And yes my true tone and night mode is off. What do I do ? What do you guys suggest ?

Sounds like you have a perfect iPad. You’ve even said the display is neutral which is what it should be.

Thanks for the suggestion guys. But I much prefer the more cooler sea-blue or as they say blue-white displays of Apple devices. Miss it so badly ! I so much wanted that on my new device. It looks very cool the cooler way !!

In my experience, Apple displays have always leaned more toward a warm, natural white balance. Never seen one that was on the blue side.

Oh there are plenty here ! Infact all of them are bluish cool looking displays !! But most of the devices which are on displays here in Apple Reseller Stores are only Wi-Fi so I don't know the bluish looking displays is more common with only Wi-Fi models and more warmer looking displays are to be found in cellular models ?

With True Tone, the display can be warmer or cooler depending on ambient lighting.

With that said, traditionally there has been some variation in screen temperature from an iPhone to the other. It's no big issue and you'll get used to it quickly.

In the accessibility settings there is a color tint option that will allow you to apply a tint of any color to the screen, and you can adjust its intensity.

Yes I did try that but that thing makes the Display Dramatically Blue, way too Blue for my liking and preference, which IMO loses the white color in all and makes it hard core Bluish, which is also something that I do not want !!

is the glue thing still used in assembly of an iPad Screen while assembling ? If it is because of the Glue, and if it is gonna dry and settle down with some continuous usage and more I use the device and if the Display then will turn into the normal Bluish-White Display as Apple always has, I can wait and see how things turn up ? Any such thing going on around right now ?

Can someone ell me about this please ?

is there any possibility that over a period of time and with more continuous usage the display may get a little more opened up and will settle down to the same Bluish-White looking display quality ? If at all there is any Glue or anything used to bond the screen with the Digitizer or anything, Does any such thing exists in the display screen when it is assembled? Will the display change in some days of time with continuous usage ?

I have the latest iPad mini and a pro and both displays are warm but you get used to it and it’s much better for photos etc. You need to relax and chill out and enjoy the iPad. Much more bigger things in life!

No that glue thing is a ridiculous theory people on here made up.

So guys who have been reading and following this thread, I asked Mr. Raymond Soneira of Displaymate Technologies the Famous Man who has been dissecting all Apple Devices Displays since last so Many Years and comes out with his analysis and findings of all latest Apple Devices Display. I asked him that I think My iPad Pro 11" has a tad warmer display leaning towards a bit yellow profile.

His answer was, Apple till about iPhone 6 and Older iPads used to have a very Bluish White Display Screens which a lot of people preferred, where the White Point was calibrated to 7200K which would give it a Bluish White Display. But ever since last some years Apple has rethought this decision and has now calibrated the Display of all its iOS devices to industry standard White Point of D6500 which also happens to be the colour of the Bright Day Light exactly as it is seen at 12 Noon !! He goes on to say further that this calibration of the white point to D6500 has infact helped to achieve high color accuracy for all image content and photographic content. Apple starting its displays in iPhone XS and all newer iPads has started implementing this which many people consider the white in it to be yellowish.

He said, there should be Apps that will let you adjust the White Point to your liking, but that will reduce the color accuracy for all image and picture content.

Haha finally! I was going to say, it’s Apple’s textbook calibration D6500 white point! I love reading his analysis on display performance.

Are you saying you would like to believe him, or you don't ?

Oh no, most definitely believe him. You can certainly see the difference between 7200 and 6500 on different iOS devices. It’s neat to have it backed up by testing as well.
