Apple iPad Mini 6 Users Complain About LCD Discoloration and Distortion Issues: Here’s What you Need to Know

The Apple iPad Mini 6 was launched along side iPhone 13 series back in September. This is the second issue raised by users after the jelly scrolling issue.

The Apple iPad Mini 6 went on pre-order recently in India and will start shipping in early November. However, the iPad Mini 6 global units are facing some issues. Multiple users reported jelly scrolling on the slate and later Apple clarified that it was not an issue as jelly scrolling is normal behaviour for LCD screens. Now, the sixth-gen iPad Mini is having another issue with regard to the display. 

Multiple users across the globe are reporting issues with the display on the iPad Mini 6. The issue includes users complaining about the discolouration and distortion issues on the LCD screen. As reported by 9to5Mac, a Reddit user who purchased the new iPad Mini 6 a week back noticed that there is a clear issue with the LCD display when kept in portrait mode. In this position, the screen will “distortion and discolouration about an inch down and in from the top right.”, said the user. The user also mentioned that the retail person who got the replacement said he said he wouldn’t be surprised if the company recalls the Apple iPad Mini 6. 

He also further said, he ordered a replacement unit and the new unit also had the same issue, but even worse and he ended up keeping his original iPad instead of the replacement. He also added the issue is clearly visible when you open Apple notes with a new blank note in dark mode while staying in the portrait mode. 

As of now, the issue is not widespread like the previously reported jelly scrolling issue, but it would be interesting too how Apple responds to the situation here. Having said that, a few other users on Reddit are also facing the same issue.
