    Hi guys, my sad story end up perfect, my first ipad was a 3rd generation refurbished, have to replaced because a poor wifi range, then i got a secon ipad 3 refurbished also, and that was with left side of the screen with a yellow tint like a burn on it and i returned a demand a refund wish i got, i went to best buy to get a brand new ipad 4, i just think finally a brand new one i will have no problem.

    So wrong when i got home the first thing i notice that the screen on this one was even worst than the last one i returned, i got so angry. After reading a lot of people with same issue telling some crap about glue or whatever i just give a try the solution off hard use for a few days on highest brightnes with no auto when i said hard use i really mean more than 1 full charge per day and. And not a bit of change still same crappy yellow tint, today i went back to best buy and replaced for another one,, finally i got an ipad that have the same hue like my iphone 4s,

    First photo is was my pervious iPad 4 vs my Acer Iconia, you can see here the the yellowish was even worst at the bottom

    Second photo was my previous iPad 3 you can notice the gradient from a yellow in left to white on center and blue/greenish on right side

    I had three iPads before Jobs died. One had a pure white screen. The other was yellowish. The other was yellowish with two (now three) dead pixels. I won't bother blaming him in his grave, though.

    And all mine were new, direct from Apple.

    I have compare side by side 4 diferent pads 3rd and 4th with retina and the truth is non of them have the same hue in the display, 1 a bit pinky another a bit greeny another a bit yellow, but very small amount of deference, not too much noticeable but the one's i got before my last one with yellow tint problem those ones were far far from the "normal ones" at the point were irritating to read email and web pages with white background,

    Im happy now that the one i just got today is the wither one i have seen, i compared to the 1 i judge was the best whiter one in compare to all of my friends pads and now that one looks a bit pink in compare with my new one, all of them are happy because they get use to them and only they notice a slightly diference in the whites when compared to the others..

    But the yellowish in my last 2 ones were obvious ridiculous with gradient on the tint,,

    I think that is a most have in next update is a setting for color, hue, tint, for the display, just like any tv or pc not everybody have the same taste for color and not every boddy have the same eye problems, like me with catarat surgery in my eyes,

    My remark was made tongue in cheek.

    I wasn't an Apple customer 10 years ago, so I can't say. It seems to me, though, that any company that gains market share as much and as quickly as Apple has will have trouble maintaining standards. Such is life.

    If something better comes along, I'll buy that instead. I am not loyal to companies or brands.

    I've gotten 3 different iPads in the last 3 months and everyone was perfect............such is life.
    They sold 3 million iPads in the first 3 days of the last release.....if they were as bad as you say, the stores and this forum would be completely overwelmed with complaints.

    Sorry for those that do have some issues but I seriously doubt it's doomsday as you seem to make it out to be.

    I had no issue with my ipad 3 when I returned it for the 4th one, the 4th is prefect, my boss got the 3 a few months ago and it's prefect, I even know people how have gotten the 2nd one recently and no issues at all....

    DaxFX, this is a China quality issue and nothing more. Take it up with Apple and leave it there. The Steve Jobs stuff is really stupid and should have never been posted. It's not a conspiracy, it just happens when a bad batch ends up on the store shelves. Sorry it happened to you but all the drama isn't necessary.

    Steve's dead, so he's not coming back. There have been issues with the retina display right from the get go. It's an incredibly complex piece of equipment, and we've had plenty of feedback on the subject.

    The short answer is take it back to your supplier, and keep doing so, until you get one that is up to standard. Apple want satisfied customers, so they will honor their warranty. Apple is not one man, and never was.

    Yellow tint was a prob even before retina screen. You can do a search and find those stories, too.

    Personally, I don't worship at the altar of Steve Jobs, and I wasn't offended. I just thought your linking the screen probs to him was silly.

    Well, apologies for mentioning him in my post.


    Rather than close the thread, let's stick to the OPs original wishes and concentrate on the screen discoloration issues. No more references to the late Steve Jobs in this thread, please.

    Back to the original issue, I just received and checked my iPad 4 display. No imperfections, no LCD screen edge bleed. No yellow tint or overly warm temperature. In fact the display is clear white, likely a cooler temperature screen. I tried an iPad 3 last May and the screen temperature was too warm, too yellow, to my liking so I returned it. I've waited till now and glad I did. It's very much like my original iPad One but with a great retina display. So there are iPad 4 screens out here with cooler temp screens.
