    HI all,
    would you mind posting a picture of your ipad air 2 screen with a black background in order to check how severe my backlight bleeding (refer to attached picture done at 100% brightness in a dark room) is with respect to other / yours. I could enter the infernal loop of exchanges with apple :apple: but with the risk of having one worse or with other issues ==> I prefer to have your kind feedback beforehand.
    Thanks a lot for your kind support and help

    Here's my iPad Air 2....so hard to capture a black screen -- never looks black. I honestly think this is the best iPad screen I've ever head. I've always had some sort of "cloudy" corners from bleeding or spotlighting. The "lower right" in the picture makes it look like I have some there, but it's really not -- I had to angle the pic a bit to keep away glare.

    Your iPad looks like mine
    No light bleed here at 100% brightness

    ----------

    Get that exchange. Horrible light bleed

    Google backlight bleed test, put brightness at 100% and run the video. Cheers

    Hope your replacement is great I hate the iPad screen lottery.

    ----------

    Just download Dead spotter APP
    Turn your brightness to 100% with a black screen
    Switch off your lights check for light bleed and stuck/dead pixels
    That's the first thing I do on any new device I purchase.
