Retina Retention Issues reported in iPad Mini

MacRumors, quoting Instapaper creator Marco Arment, who originally developed a grid test to detect the problem in Retina MacBook Pros, reports that some Retina iPad minis are demonstrating image retention issues.

It may be noted that image retention was first cited as a potential issue last week, when a rumour suggested that burn-in on Sharp's IGZO panels was causing production delays with the Retina mini's display, leading to significant supply constraints that have resulted in a quiet release for the tablet.



While it is unclear how many Retina iPad minis are affected by the issue, several mini owners on Twitter have discovered the problem after running the grid test. It is not known if the image retention is limited to displays from specific manufacturers, as many Retina iPad minis are not experiencing display problems. 

In addition to image retention, some users on the MacRumors forums have also noted that their Retina mini screens are not as vibrant as iPad Air, suggesting the Retina iPad mini may have a smaller colour gamut.
