Shortly after the new iPad mini was liberated, parties started complaining about seeing a creepy “jelly-like” influence on their screens while moving. It emerges as if one surface of the screen scrolls at a different charge than the other, building it look like the screen is wobbling. Those who were hoping for a fix to the problem would probably be disappointed by Apple’s response, because the tech giant has told Ars Technica that the device’s screen wobbling question isn’t a problem at all.
A spokesperson told the publication that the jelly-like effect beings are seeing is typical for LCD screens, because they refresh line by thread. As such, it’s normal for the lines among the priorities of the display to refresh at a different frequency than the lines at the bottom. Ars Technica insists, though, that the effect is much palpable on the iPad mini than “its on” other 60 Hz LCD iPads, including the latest entry-level model that was liberated with the mini. Further, there’s a observable boundary segmenting the screen in the middle when the tablet is in portrait mode.
It remains to be seen whether Apple would got something about this jelly scrolling impact in the future, considering people are airing complaints about it. For now, it looks the tech giant’s stance is that it’s par for the course for an LCD screen and that users will simply have to get used to it.
