    Hello. I have a very simple problem with my ipad that drives me INSANE. My screen feels sticky. it's not sticky that much but I can not softly slide my finger on the screen, and it really prevents playing games, writing with hand, painting and simple (but important) stuff like that.

    I did not clean my ipa with anything other thana drop of water and mirofiber so far. I did not use any chemicals on it. Did not stick or remove anything of it. I'm using it exactly as I should, but after 3 weeks of using it, I felt this feeling in the starting of this week. Right now it's driving me insane, literally !!

    I searched / googled about this simple problem, but most of the people having the same problem somehow used chemicals on their screens.

    I bought my ipad from another country so it seems like its impossible for me to take it to the warranty check within a sooner time range.



    Any ideas ?!

    I searched and found someone with same problem, they used a dab and only a small dab of water, and then repeated in a few hours and it was fine, make sure you wipe it back off.

    For what it's worth, I've never put anything on my iPad. I clean the screen with a glasses cloth, and if I feel 'stickiness' (is that a word?) I wash my hands. Sorts it for me.

    tried both of them again and again.... still the same...
    I cant even play "spirit"..... SO irritating. its like a regular clean class that you try to rub with your finger --- it sticks.

    I use a cleaning spray that I got for my glasses from my eye doctor and a microcloth to clean my iPad screen. The screen always has a smoother glide to it after I clean it this way. I have a Zagg screen protector on it too.

    you can also use a window tint film cleaner.. they have some additives that makes it smooth.

    I didnt clean it with a window cleaner for sure.
    it's still the same as when I opened the topic. Maybe "sticky" is not the word, maybe I can tell this:
    Its's hard to move the finger on the surface, it feels like there is a lot of friction.

    Apple recommends IKLEAR for all these "I" screen types.....which they sell.

    hmmm... is it the screens problem or your hand? if its your screen use a screen protector its just cheap if its your hand apply powder to
    your hand (it can be any powder) this actually worked for me.
    hope this helps! :thumbs:

    It may not be a good idea to use powder on your hands while using the iPad. There's too much chance of some of it coming off the hands and finding it's way inside.
