Neither do I.
I came here looking for answers because the iPad Mini 2 I have which is relatively new, has so many scratches after less than a month of use. I'm actually looking at it now and the 2 year old LG G4 phone I have or any other iPads I have. None have the level of scratches this one has. Apple definitely changed something.
I have a 7 year old iPad 1 that has no scratches at all on it's screen. None of my newer iPads have any screen scratches either. It's entirely possible that there's a lot of grit in the environment where you're using your iPad. That could cause many fine scratches over time as you use your iPad.
Maybe I wasn't clear in my earlier posting. This is a list (not exhaustive) of the devices I have used:
iPad Air 2
LG G4 (2 year old phone which I am still using).
iPad Mini 2 in my possession for about a month.
i do not question the durability of the 7 year old iPad 1 screen which I also possess. I question the durability of the iPad Mini 2 screen which is the first device I've seen more scratches on the screen than any of the (including 7 year old iPad 1) and the first device which has more scratches on screen than the back cover or sides.
As far as I know, the iPad Mini 2 screen was not made of a less durable glass than other iPads. You say you’ve only had the iPad mini2 in your possession for about a month, has all the scratching occurred in that month?
Sorry, my bad. I quoted the wrong iPad Mini, it's an iPad Mini 4.
And yes, I've had it fresh from sealed box to it's current condition in about a month. I don't remember my much used and abused iPad Air 2 (dropped, rolled across wooden floor, etc) had anything like this (or any other iPad I had previously). That's why I suspect Apple changed something recently.
Maybe you were just lucky with your other devices. If you drop or otherwise mishandle your iPad it may get scratched.
The mini does have thinner glass, but it is also more flexible than its larger brethren, that's why you see more broken LCDs on minis even though the glass is still intact. I've seen a mini take a hit that killed the lcd , left a dent in the battery and even dented the back case but the glass didn't break.
Boy, sorry for your experience - I've had an iPad 2 & now an iPad Air 2, neither w/ any scratches (use Apple's smart covers); wife has had the iPad Mini 2 & now the iPad Mini 4 (probably 2 years on the latter) - absolutely no scratches (uses same covers) - your screen has either been abused in some fashion and/or is defective - what is your current warranty and do you have a nearby Apple store for their people to assess the screen?
