    Just received a new iPad for my half tinted screen, the new one I got has a more even screen but very yellow. Compared the 2 side by side and I really see the difference in tints. I have posted this before and said as long as I get a uniformed screen I am ok with it.

    The honeymoon was quickly over, after using my new iPad I just couldn't believe how hot it got. I did the exact same things as my other iPad but here I was with this hot pad. I wanted to make sure that I wasn't doing anything different and ran all same apps and even brightness , running both of them side by side.

    They don't come from different factories as they are both DM , one week 9 the other week 18.

    I just really don't get any of this, I am baffled!


    It is only getting better wow!

    I was reading a book on my iPad when I noticed star like sprinkles in the middle of the screen. I tried wiping my iPad of it to only discover my screen littered with stuck pixels. If only a picture would show it I would post , it is ALL over my screen! There are clumps of them too!

    I never go looking for dead pixels or any of that jazz, only saw it under normal viewing.

    How on earth did this pass quality control????

    Seriously, I'd just give up. In fact, that's exactly what I did. I got my money back and used that to buy new tires for my car. I'm getting much more satisfaction from the tires than the tinted screen iPads. I'm back to using my iPad 1 and have now decided that I'm not going to bother with this year's model. I'll see what next year brings.

    The quality is just not up to par on these new ones.

    I say this all the time. If you're having bad luck with the new ones, return it and give it some time. They made some design changes and it's likely that they're not doable within the old manufacturing tolerances. It might take real changes in several parts of the manufacturing process to bring these up to the level of consistency seen within the older model.

    If it's relatively even then I'd try the burn in method to get the yellow to lessen. The whole yellow complaint has existed since the original iPad.
