iPad 2 Yellow Screen Tinting On New Devices?

by on March 11th, 2011

Reports have come in from MacRumors forum users who have noticed a yellow tinting on their new iPad 2 displays. The yellow tinting is similar to tinting issues that appeared on early iPhone 4 shipments. At the time, the iPhone 4 issue was described as follows:

Apple is using a bonding agent called Organofunctional Silane Z-6011 to bond the layers of glass. Apparently, Apple (or more likely Foxconn) is shipping these products so quickly that the evaporation process is not complete. However, after one or two days of use, especially with the screen on, will complete the evaporation process and the yellow “blotches” will disappear.

The iPhone 4 tinting issue resolved itself after the first couple of days after launch. So these iPad 2 tinting issues should also eventually be resolved.

Just like with the iPhone 4 launch, Apple seems to be shipping iPad 2 units as quickly as they are being manufactured, which is believed to be the reason the display bonding agent has not had time to set.

    iPhone 4 tinting issue never “resolved itself”, it’s temperature-dependent, obviousness of the tint increases with temperature.
