It's all about page orientation, iFixit suggests.
A fresh drop of Apple's latest iPad mini from iFixit has found evidence that may explain the "jelly crawling" effect some tablet users have been complaining about. p>
Read more The latest iPad mini has a subtle navigation issue [Update] If we don't pay attention to our previous coverage of this issue, some iPad mini users will notice a subtle and shocking disconnect between the two right and left device. While navigating through the content, some people see it right away, some have to show it to them, and others don't even notice when they're told.
After we wrote about it, Apple commented on the story and said the effect is expected. From our coverage:
Apple told us in response to our request that the "jelly motion" theme in the 6th generation iPad mini is normal behavior for LCD screens. Since these pages are updated line by line, there is a slight delay between updating the upper and lower lines. This can cause jagged scrolling like those seen on the iPad. In contrast, the iPad Air has a landscape orientation. iFixit suggests that the effect of swiping the gel occurs when the orientation of the tablet does not match the location of the dashboard, because the line-by-line update also occurs in relation to the orientation of the tablet.Advertising
Sure, the iPad mini's slow motion video shows the jelly moving vertically (vertical) rather than horizontally (horizontal). The iPad Air also shows gel in the same experience. It only does this in landscape orientation instead of portrait.
The iPad Pro has a vertical screen control panel. While another video test showed that gel navigation still occurs vertically on this tablet just like the Mini, the Pro's 120Hz refresh rate covered it all for most eyes. It can only be said that although the effect may be more noticeable on one device than on another, it is common on any OLED, LCD, iPad or other items. The recent online controversy over the iPad mini jelly navigation, iFixit usually tears me down figuring out how to easily fix the hardware. iPad mini 3 out of 10 received for repair. Earlier this week, iFixit also ripped the iPhone 13 Pro, giving it a 6 out of 10.
