[Mods - conscious this is also partially discussed in the screen protector area but my query sits outside that]
- Purchased an iPad Pro 11 (Cellular, 256gb)
- Used it for a couple of days intermittently - noticed it missed a few swipes but put it down to 'downgrading' from a 12.9" pro which i was used to.
- Put a glass screen protector on it - noticed that touch screen seemed to 'miss' more touch presses when typing or when scrolling through a page.
- Took screen protector off it (cleaned screen etc) - still noticed touch screen was missing some presses or swipes.
- Downloaded a touch screen tester app from the store :
- Tested my partner's iPad 10.5 - no misses/skips
- Tested my older (last generation, not gen 1) iPad 12.9 - no misses/skips
- Tested the iPad Pro 11 - misses and skips a low percentage every time
- Note, that particular app scaled on the screen oddly however (so not a perfect test)
- Took the iPad into the Apple Store, they kindly swapped it out.
- Repeated the test on the new Ipad 11 - Same result
- Tried the above with and without screen protectors (cleaned screen after)
- My iPad Pro 11 is a Cellular 256gb
- I also have a ipad Pro WiFi 10.5 and iPad Pro WiFi 12.9 (gen2)
- It's certainly not a subjective thing as I've seen the behavior (or lack of), transitioned back to the older pros and it 'feels' different.
- Enough that it disrupts my workflow
- That being said, it's not repeatable (aka not a certain site, app or whatever) but it happens in brief usage.
- I haven't noticed if this repeats with the pencil or not. This is all finger touch.
- Is there a better/more scientific way of testing touch sensitivity (as mentioned the app i used scaled 'oddly' on the Pro 11 which may invalidate my test
- Is anyone else, upgrading from a previous iPad pro, anecdotally noticing more mistypes or scrolling actions that sometimes need a second swipe?
- If so, are you on an 11 or 12.9?
