A blue vertical bar means that someone has set some apps up for access via switch scanning. People usually do this with communication apps. Go to Settings>General>Accessibility>Switch Control, and turn that off.
[doublepost=1545950737][/doublepost]If that doesn’t work, set up an appointment with an apple rep either online or at an apple store. But i have heard of this before, and it might be a simple adjust in settings. Try it, and let us know.

Hi! Thanks for the tip.

I’ve checked and the switch control was already turned off.

I believe this has only happen when I play a game called Plunder Pirates (not sure if its happening only with that game).
I have only use the iPad for 4 days now, I will be using it more to see if it only happens when I use that game.

If not then I’ll go to an Apple Store. :(

Yeah, i actually wouldn’t worry. If it was a perminant screen defect, it would show up all the time. I think you’re right that it may be associated with a certain app or game. Perhaps try deleting the game and see if that helps.

If you only see the blue line when you are using a certain app then it is not a hardware problem.

I have confirm now that is happening with more than one app.
I have also reset the iPad and the line appear as soon as I unlock it. ):
Also one time I took a screenshot while the line was on the screen and the line doesn’t show up on the screenshot, so I suppose it has something to do with the hardware and not software.
Fortunately the product is still under warranty so I will take to an Apple Store.

I bought an iPad Pro 64gb WiFi (newest) for Christmas an I’ve got different times a very thin black line on the middle of the screen.
It shows up for like a couple of minutes and disappear, it has happen like 7 times.
Does anyone knows more about this?
The same is happening to me too. It was after I downloaded 2048. The appearances of it have become fewer and fairer in between ever since I deleted the app. I’m going to get it checked at Best Buy in two days. Will fill you in.

I had something sort of similar on a 2018 ipp 12.9. Instead of a line, on my ipad it was about half an inch thick and flickered in different colors. Like emergency broadcast or those old school tv test color bars. At first it only appeared for seconds at a time maybe once a week then it kept getting frequent until it was permanent.

Purchased at a Best Buy but brought it to an Apple store and they replaced it without any hassle. Just had to wait about 2 days for the replacement to come in.
