I have an iPad Pro 12.9 full from 2018. While watching a movie on Netflix I noticed a white glow at the edge of the screen. I checked the screen with the EIZO Test screen - unformity, at maximum brightness and indeed this slight discolouration is there. In my opinion, this is not so-called light bleeding - as you look at it, it is practically perfect evenly distributed around the screen as to the pixel. Nor is it rather the result of burning the screen.

He could have iPad Pro checked in a test (first result in the Google after entering the EIZO screen test) EIZO Test - mode: unformity 25% at maximum brightness or does it have something like that?

It is most visible on a uniform grey colour

That definitely doesnt look right. Take it to Apple.

The goods come from the exposition of one of the official Apple resellers in my country.

Strange situation, on light or dark but uniform colors you can not see it. Only on a gradient of colors you can see a strip equal in width to several pixels around. Could any iPad Pro owner take similar photos with the above mentioned conditions for comparison ?
