Shortly after the new iPad Mini 6 began to reach users, a series of “jelly” reports began to appear appearing on the iPad Mini 6 screen. This phenomenon usually occurs when this iPad is held vertically and swiping lines. of text or web pages up and down, it now appears that one side of the screen has a slower refresh rate than the other. This lag is harder to notice if the iPad is in landscape mode.
However, in an interview with Ars Technica, an Apple representative said that the “jelly melt” phenomenon for some iPad Mini 6 displays is not a problem the company needs to fix. According to Apple, gelatin melting is normal for LCD panels. The screen is designed to update line by line, so there will be a slight delay between the lines at the top and bottom of the screen when swiping, resulting in the above phenomenon.
The jelly melt phenomenon on the new iPad Mini 6
Not only for the iPad Mini 6, this phenomenon also appears on the iPad Air or even the recently launched 9th generation iPad lineup.
According to AppleInsider, this phenomenon is also seen on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro when ProMotion is on, but it’s not as obvious as what people realize on the newly launched iPad Mini 6.
Unfortunately, this also means that people who are not satisfied with the irregularities on the screen of their new iPads will not be able to repair or exchange their devices for a new one from Apple.
If this problem has become common on LCD devices and less noticeable on iPad Pros, a software solution is likely to alleviate the problem. However, since Apple says this is not a problem they need to fix, it is unclear whether the company wants to find software solutions to fix the problem.
