    Does anyone else have slight lightbleed/light boxing across the bottom of their iPad Pro. It is very subtle on mine and is most apparent on baby blue or light grey background. It catches my eye when scrolling left and right.

    Yeah I have the same exact thing but this is my second one today. I first ordered the Space Gray and when it arrived I noticed right away it took awhile for the screen to just show the Apple logo after I held the lock button. Also white lines flashed across the screen when it turned on. So I exchanged it at the store for a Gold one and I can notice light bleeding from the bottom along with a tiny scratch on the chamfered edge above the charging port but I'm going to keep it. I would rather have those "issues" than something worse.

    Had a 256 and now a 64

    256 had a really obvious yellow strip of light bleed at bottom

    This one has it too, but a lot more faint imo

    Both start with DM serial# wise

    Nope, nothing noticeable even on max brightness with a black screen in a dark room.

    Yup... Have put in for a replacement. Hopefully I'm not playing the lottery...

    This is normal. I think you should just enjoy your new iPads and stop worrying about tiny details.

    Mine isn't so much when it is dark, it is when there is a white or light coloured background. It is as if the backlight is too close to the panel edge. Image what it would look like if you had about 10 lights in a line aimed up at the bottom of a white wall... There are bight spots and dark spots... Almost like beads... That is the best analogy I can give... If it were just black screen light bleed at full brightness in a dark room, I wouldn't think twice... This is not normal..

    I'm actually surprised I have not noticed it yet and this is after I played a movie for an hour on this .

    What you describe is what's known as "spotlighting" I believe. It is a pretty common defect to come across - on older iPhones moreso than iPads. Return it.

    No ... my last few iPads never had this issue . The ones I kept because of other issues like wanting different capacities and dust under the screen I never had light bleeding issues .

    No light bleed on my 10.5", watched a couple of videos with dark scenes and could not detect any light bleed. Unfortunately light bleed can affect any LCD screen, hopefully if people return theirs, they will get an iPad without the light bleed.
