    After two weeks with my ipad I noticed that screen bezel near home button started to lift up. Apple store exchanged my Ipad and now it appears that I have the same issue on the new one as well but this time is near the camera. What really gets me is that Apple will replae the unit with refurbish one. Is anybody having the same issue?

    what makes you say it's refurbished? perhaps it's just a brand new unit suffering the same problems. sounds like the batch was faulty. other people have reported the same issues.

    i personally have 2 minor screen light bleeds. nothing to write home about, but common defects all the same.

    My 3G looks like its starting to come away from the screen along the top edge (the black part - 3G aerial?, so I will keep an eye on it.

    I can press down on the top edge and the gap closes. Early days yet, so I will see how it goes, but I don't want to be given a refurbished unit :(

    Also, I have 2 or 3 tiny specs of dust under the glass which were not there when I first got it - one looks like its a tiny chip, but there is no way that I have done anything to get one, plus I can't feel it, so that has to be under the glass too :(

    O yes it will be refubish one, Apple store in Sherway Gardens called me that they have repalcement for me so I rushed to the store and when I inspected the unit was actually worse then my existing one. I refuse it and now they sending me to Apple store in Buffalo where I bought my original Ipad so they will try to replace it with new unit.

    So it apears that Apple admits to this issue as I was visiting Genius bar in Buffalo. They will replace my unit with brand new one with rectified issue. Apple rocks, Im happy.

    Hi everyone, im also having the issue of screen lift, I've fixed a few of these at the shop i work at and I've had two back a few weeks later, the problem is mainly near where the digitizer cable sits, and on the top right side, anyone know any tips i can use to help keep the screen from lifting?

    Your screen and digitizer were probably not installed exactly right. A properly installed screen and digitizer should not lift up as yours does. You may have to re-install them.
