Apple’s new iPad mini was quietly launched just last week and we’re sure given the Retina display and the iPad mini’s portability that many Apple fans went out there to get their hands on the device as soon as possible. However it turns out that being an early-adopted might not be such a good idea after all, especially since we are hearing reports in which several Retina iPad mini users have complained of image retention issues with their tablets.
For those unfamiliar with image retention, it’s basically where parts of previously displayed windows are still visible on the screen even after closing it, or while you’re running a completely different app. This problem is not new to Apple and has been spotted before on the original Retina MacBook Pro. The good news is that this is not a permanent problem and the images will eventually disappear after several minutes, but can be still annoying and obviously no one wants their brand new tablet to come plagued with issues right out of the box, right?
Apple previously allowed replacements of MacBook Pro units for customers suffering from the problem, so if you think your iPad mini with Retina display is suffering from image retention issues, you might want to take your unit back and see if Apple will replace it for you as well.
