Apple accused of fraudulent marketing over iPad mini 6 ‘jelly screen’: class action lawsuit filed

Published

Colorado resident Christopher Bryan filed a class action lawsuit against Apple on Wednesday, accusing the company of fraudulent marketing and releasing a sixth-generation iPad mini despite the company knowing about the jelly screen.

A few days after the release of the iPad mini 6 tablet in stores, users have noticed a “jelly scrolling” effect on the tablet’s display, which Apple claims is normal LCD screen behavior.

The lawsuit, filed in Northern California District Court, alleges that Apple is aware of the problem but continues to sell the iPad mini without fixing the defect or amending its promotional materials to reflect the defect.

Well-known resource iFixit disassembled the iPad mini 6 and after analysis made a statement regarding the “jelly scrolling” effect, which is not uncommon for LCD and OLED panels. iFixit suggests that this may be due to the design of the tablet and the location of the special chip on the screen of the iPad mini 6. The display controller board is installed vertically inside the device, not horizontally, as in the fourth generation iPad Air.

The lawsuit requires Apple to return the money to all buyers in the United States who purchased the iPad Mini 6.

Next Realme Tablet Might Get Snapdrgon 870 25K Screen Over

This week, Realme introduced the Pad X 5G tablet computer, which was based on the Snapdragon 695 single-chip system, but the company was initially preparing another device – more powerful, which could well compete with the hit Xiaomi Pad 5.

This is what Realme Pad X looks like

According to an insider known in China as Digital Chat Station, Realme initially prepared a tablet based on a Snapdragon 870 single-chip system, with a 2.5K screen and a battery capacity of more than 8000 mAh. The leaker doesn’t say the tablet has been cancelled, so it could be next after the Pad X 5G. The insider also wrote a cryptic phrase: “the first tablet of the old competitor is also on the way”. The source saw this as a hint at the first Redmi tablet, since these brands are the main competitors in the home market. The specifications of the first Redmi tablet are not given, but to some extent it could repeat the current Xiaomi Pad 5, while Xiaomi itself will soon (presumably in August) have more powerful Pad 6.

Digital Chat Station is a world famous informant. Previously, he was the first to accurately announce the characteristics and release dates of Redmi K30, K40, Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 11.

Xiaomi has already entered the promising Pad 6 tablet into the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) database, but the lineup will include not one, but three devices: Pad 6, Pad 6 Pro and Pad 6 Pro 5G. The source believes that Xiaomi will take a dual-platform approach to them.

This means that Qualcomm SoCs and Mediatek SoCs will be used simultaneously. In particular, Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 and Dimensity 9000. That is, in terms of performance, the top versions of Pad 6 will not be inferior to flagship smartphones. Also, Pad 6 is credited with more powerful charging technology – 120W instead of 67W. As the source notes, this is especially important for devices with a battery capacity of more than 8000 mAh. Other features of the Pad 6 include 144Hz screens, better audio, and a new version of MIUI for Pad.
