Some 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro components, launched back in 2017, are apparently experiencing a screen problem that is causing a dim white spot to appear over the home button. The first reports about the problem surfaced online in April this year, with more appearing over the calendar year, claims a recent report. While some of the affected consumers could acquire their iPad Pro replaced, many of those iPad Pro units are outside of their one-piece guarantee offered by the Cupertino-based company. Such customers are being asked to shell out a screen replacement fee by Apple.
As per a report in MacRumors, the faint white spot emerging on the iPad Pro units is brighter than the rest of the display and could be found about 1-2-inches over the house button. It seems to be a problem linked with the backlighting, but the specific cause is unclear at this point. Most of the user accounts note the display difficulty arose months in their use of the apparatus and wasn’t present right from the box.
I only noticed the white place last week when I was looking at a few white background content, the place doesn’t seem on darker colours like black, grey, blue -most prominent on white,” an iPad Pro owner wrote on Apple Communities.
“I’ve the exact same problem and sadly it happened two weeks after the guarantee had finished. Disappointing! ,” another user added.
MacRumors claims to have confirmed the problem in their 10.5-inch unit of the 2017 iPad Pro also it’s in line with what the customers are reporting in Apple Communities and other forums.
Though these reports are appearing online for months now, the exact extent to which display issue is present on the iPad Pro units is a puzzle at this point. It is also not known if the exact same problem exists on the 2018 versions of the slate, but then the 2018 versions are rather new and the problem only presents itself following months of usage.
