Hi guys,


Just throwing this out there for all the people with Yellow Tint issues, I'm wondering whether this is more common with the lower or higher end models of memory size.


Could be a factor in trying to find one which has less or no tint at all, the bad screens may have been installed on the higher end models for some reason


I have the 256GB version and I'm still not happy

What Leads you to believe that the higher storage models perhaps have defective displays?

From my experience of testing 5 256gb iPad pros already

But could very well be more less GB models, who knows

Then there is no need to vote, I just want to find out which GB version has the most yellow tints

I'd be lying if I said I never had it but I do although very subtle and don't notice it at all in use. I only see it in the likes of settings when I look for it. My 2017 12.9 does not suffer from this issue.

It’s a lottery. You will not find a definitive answer.

64gb Wifi Space Grey 10.5” here.

My iPad has a really slight faint yellowing near the home button on the left bottom when in portrait but you really need to look for it. 3 out of the 4 iPads in the Apple Store had the same if not worse effect, so chances are if you replace the screen it most likely will have some degree of this issue. Which in most cases normal users wouldn’t see. I just happen to see it because I use the iPad to draw on a white background for extended periods. My iPad is also dead pixel/particle and dust free and honestly that would bother me way more....it’s a toss up. Not sure I want to play the exchange game anymore.

Honestly I am beginning to think this is normal as LCD screens can never truly be uniform. Dead Pixels anddust particles can be prevented but screen uniformity is never perfect - look at other manufacturers tablets and they have a lot worse uniformity and backlight bleed.

See picture for my display (home Button on right) andtell me what you think:

Just when I thought I'd seen it all from the yellow-tint band of misfits, I come across this thread. If you think the memory chip inside the iPad has any resemblance to the display, you might as well start a thread to determine if holding your iPad in your left hand or right hand has an effect on what you think you see.
