    [SOLVED] Significant touch point offset on ipad 3

    Hi guys,

    Problem
    :
    Everytime I touch, for example, an [x] button to close a tab or window, I need to touch it slightly below by about 1 to 2mm. If I touch on the centre of it (by using stylus), it doesn't work.

    This "issue" seems to be more pronounced in certain applications such as AppStore or Goodreader.

    I had done some searches, and the most useful answer I found is that this might be a feature rather than a hardware issue. See here:
    automatic Touch point offset problem (iPad) cocos2d for iPhone

    To reproduce this "issue"
    :
    Open the AppStore
    Click on the search box
    Type anything, in my case I just type "Test"
    There is an [x] appears on the right of search box
    Now, to click on this [x], I have to aim my stylus roughly 1mm below it. It won't work if I hit the stylus on the centre of [x].

    Does anyone else have this issue?

    Many thanks.

    Ok, problem solved.


    Went to Apple Store today - Tested on four ipad3 and some of the ipad2 - Similar behaviour.


    So it appears that this is a feature/intentional. Which makes me feel a little better that at least I can now rest my mind that it is not a hardware fault.
