When should it be safer to buy an ipad air without screen problems?
What screen problems?
Well, there is 1 thread with about 30 people or so with a problem this is a WIDE spread issue we're dealing with stay away guys.
Some people in a macrumors forum doesn't make it a "widespread" issue.
But if you feel there is a widespread problem, then the short answer is: never. They will never fix the problem. So don't buy one. Ever.
quarter million ipads sold in each state. 45 people on macrumors and about 3 other sides got ipads with problems. the rest are having fun enjoying theres posting reviews ... LOL
buy it. you have 14 days to exchange. i had mines PERFECT until everyones OCD got to me and i saw the blue bar on the left. no big deal exchange and its perfect again .
It's safe to buy one now. A lot people on these forums are actively looking for screen issues. Even if you did have a "defective" screen, you probably wouldn't notice it during real world usage anyway.
Here's another thread with 70 people with perfect Airs, neither of which means nothing.
Buy an iPad Air and enjoy it. It's fine.
Will be fixed in iPad 6. Apple likes to sell prototypes before the real revolutionary model
I had one with the screen problem. I've exchanged it and I cannot fault the new one. Clearly the problem does happen, but it is not as widespread as I was fearing. Just get one and if it is not ok get it exchanged.
Some people get more than 1 with a bad screen, and same issue. Seems like there may be bad batches. There are also quite a few people with the issue compared with the total number of MR members who bought them.
Many people wouldn't notice the screen issues anyways, although many would given the whiteness of iOS 7 and many web pages.
Just because you got have a good one, doesn't mean an issue doesn't exist. Same people who say iOS 7 is perfect because bugs and flaws either don't affect them, or they don't notice.
"If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"
amazing, people are getting problems but actual ipad air owners don't
So if you don't have the screen problem, it doesn't exist?
Clever link. It's selfish to think human perception is required for physics to be true. I suppose the selfish bit can sure relate...
Is that what you got out of the link?
It's what I got from your post. I don't have to click the link to be familiar with 6th grade philosophical concepts.
It just doesn't apply to this. It is selfish to say that "I don't have a problem therefore it does not exist"... it just shows they believe the world revolves around them. "I don't have a problem so it doesn't affect me" is more appropriate, is it not?
I'm being sarcastic. I created that thread.
I'm sorry that all you get from that. I'd love to have a philosophical debate here with you, but unfortunately this is not the place.
Look at it this way. Just because I have a problem with an Air, or because 30 people on an Internet forum have a problem with their Airs, does that imply some sort of manufacturing defect or Apple conspiracy?
If people type "MY Air" is doing this or that, rather than "THE Air", perhaps we wouldn't be having this discussion. Apple designs and builds devices to be free of defects. Do they still happen? Of course. But just because yours is broke don't assume they all are.
I'm not assuming that. However, when the same issue comes up for many, especially when the same person gets more than one, it has to be acknowledged as a *potential* issue to keep an eye out for. To say that it's absolutely not even possibly a problem because "my iPad is fine" (which is sometimes more opinion than fact) is not helpful and short sighted.
The only way any kind of problem is recognized and resolved is first by observing it, not by denying it.
It SHOULD be safer to buy an iPad air without screen problems since day 1, but obviously in reality, it's not. Production defects will ALWAYS exist, whether it's the 1st one off the assembly line, the 10,000th, or the 1,000,000th. It's just the luck of the draw and the way of life. Go buy an iPad air and enjoy it, but know this, if you end up getting an iPad air with screen defects, you are stuck with it for life. No complain, and don't cry about it. Just consider yourself having bad luck.
Special bulletin: Apple has something new, something never heard of, called a return policy. So for those we got an iPad air with bad screens, they can actually return the damn thing and get the money back or get a replacement. Bad luck people all saved. Love it!
That sounds wonderful. But what happens around here is hardly "observing".
Even the title of this thread makes some pretty big assumptions. "Production defect issues". Really?
My general rule of thumb is to wait 3-4 months after launch.
The odds of getting a defective iPad will be the same whether you buy today or in three months. You just have a large majority of people from macrumors purchasing on day 1, so when there is an issue they post. Over the next few months the defects will be the same but lower numbers of people will be buying simultaneously, so it seems less widespread.
Hopefully in a couple weeks. I've seen a few bad screens and too many scratches on the back casing.
it will be solve on the month where iPad6 to be announce....
