Hot Potatoes: Apple cites reports that some users of the new iPad Mini 6 have noticed the unpleasant effect of "jelly motion". There has been speculation about whether this was a hardware or software issue, but according to Cupertino, it wasn't: Apple says this is normal behavior.
Earlier this week, there were reports of a well-reviewed issue with the iPad Mini 6. When scrolling vertically with a lot of text on the screen - for example, reading web pages - it moves One side of the screen is faster than the other, causing a slight tear. It's not easy to notice in everyday use, but it can be clearly seen in the slow motion video below.
Here's a slow motion video of scrolling through the iPad Min slowing down more in one frame - note step by step how the right moves faster than the left. In normal use, you can hardly see it, but from time to time it becomes noticeable. Disappears completely in the landscape pic.twitter.com/iq9LGJzsDI- Dieter Boone (backlon) September 22, 2021
In response to reports, Apple tells Ars Technica that there are no debugging issues and this is normal behavior for LCD screens as they regenerate linearly and cause delays. However, the post notes that on other 60Hz iPads, such as the latest $329 iPad at the same time and the iPad Air 4, it's not significant. Mini 6 is not available in other devices.
On the other hand, there is the argument of John Prosser, an incompatible technology, who agrees that this is normal behavior for these displays. He adds that it is present in the iPad Air.
About the "jelly effect" when transitioning on iPad mini: Yes. Normal LCD/60Hz behavior also occurs on iPad Air, but news is not captured
