iPad mini 2 Retina screen problems, yellow returns

By Peter Chubb - Nov 13, 2013

Apple has yet to resolve the crashing and flickering problems with its iPad Air, this is because iOS 7.0.4 has yet to be released. Apple were quick to rectify the issues with the MacBook Pro and Mavericks, so why the long wait for the tablet update? If that wasn’t bad enough, we have since learned that an old problem has come back to haunt one of its latest devices.

While doing some searching around on some forums we have found that there are a few iPad mini 2 owners suffering with Retina screen problems. It seems that the yellow tint is back for some owners, and it does not seem to be an issue that is going away.

There had been some suggestions that it would go away in time because of the gluing process, something we have seen with some iPhone models from the past, but this doesn’t seem to be the case this time.

Several owners with an iPad mini with Retina said that if you have a yellow tint on your screen, then chances are it will not go away. This is because the gluing process is not the same as it is for the iPhone. Most people are saying if your iPad mini 2 has a yellow screen problem, then you will need to contact Apple in order to exchange it for a new unit.

There have been some suggestions to run the new iPad mini at maximum brightness for a few days and if it is still there, then that is the time to return it to Apple.

We would just like to add this is not a widespread issue, but it is still not good news for Apple, as it seems they just cannot eradicate this yellow screen issue.
