Some Retina iPad minis suffering burn-in problems
Some Retina iPad minis are suffering trouble with image burn-in, note Instapaper founder Marco Arment and some of his followers on Twitter. Arment has devised a <a href="http://www.marco.org/2013/11/14/image-retention-retina-ipad-mini">test</a> for the problem, based on a similar one he created for the MacBook Pro, that involves switching from a black-and-white checkerboard image to an all-gray one. In the second image, some people are seeing faint but noticeable traces of the checkerboard.<br /><br />Last week, rumors hinted that the reason for the delay and smaller-scale launch of the new Mini was <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/298529==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/11/08/apple.allegedly.turning.to.samsung.for.help/" rel='nofollow'>burn-in problems with Sharp IGZO panels</a>. Arment's test may support those claims, although it had been suggested that Apple was rejecting screens with burn-in. Some sub-standard screens may have nevertheless made it into shipping tablets.<br />
