Shortly after the iPhone 4 was launched back in June last year, we started hearing reports of slight discoloration on a specific section of the Retina display. Users complained that they could see some sort of yellow stain in the bottom right-hand corner of the display.
Now it appears that the same thing is occurring with the recently released iPad 2. According to a recent article by Arnold Kim over on the macrumors.com website, a few people have now noticed a yellow tint on the screen of their brand new iPad 2s.
When the issue first occurred on the Apple iPhone 4, it was put down to the bonding agent that is used to bond the layers of glass together. Apple (or maybe Foxconn) was shipping the devices so fast, that the evaporation process was unfortunately not complete.
However, after using the phone for one or two days (especially with the screen on), the yellow blotches were said to have disappeared. The same rule should apply to those that are experiencing the same problem on their iPad 2, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
Have you been experiencing the yellow tint problem on your new iPad 2 displays?
