Earlier this week, iFixit disassembled the iPhone 13 Pro, giving us an idea of the placement of internal components. They also confirmed the information that replacing the display on a new product can lead to the disabling of the Face ID function. Therefore, the device received a repairability score of 5 out of 10.
Now experts have taken up the disassembly of the new iPad mini 6 (2021). First of all, to deal with the so-called “jelly update problem” that buyers from Twitter are complaining about.
After disassembling the device, iFixit confirmed that jelly scrolling is indeed a feature of LCD displays. In the new iPad mini 6 (2021), it is more noticeable due to poor placement of the controller. It is located on the left side, and therefore one of the parts is updated faster.
The iPad Air 4 (2020) has the same detail at the top, so the update delay isn’t as noticeable to users. iFixit also suggested that the design uses a cheaper display, so the “jelly update” appears more than on the iPad Air.
Apple will reportedly not be replacing the iPad mini 6 (2021) with “jelly scrolling”. The company called this a common process for LCDs.
