    Hi,

    I noticed in some threads that people can tell when their iPads were manufactured, who manufactured the LCD, etc. Where do you guys get this info from?

    My serial is DLXLNB - what can you guys tell me based on that.
    iPad mini retina 32gb cellular.

    Thanks.

    Where does it say weather it's Sharp, LG, or Samsung screen?

    I don't think it will, but rather people infer the display type based location and/or date of manufacture

    Any correlation between date and quality? Should I look for a December model rather than October or November?

    Did apple change the format of their serial numbers? IIRC before you were able to tell the factory and week of production just by looking at the serial

    My Air is DM (China - Foxconn) which we all know about.

    However, my retina mini shows as F4 (China, Shanghai - Pegatron-Protek)

    Anyone have information about this manufacturing site.

    The mini screen is a little more subdued or easier on the eyes than those I've checked in the Apple store which were all Foxconn products. Different display panel perhaps?
