A few days after the sixth-generation iPad mini was released in September, some users started noticing that text appeared slightly uneven when scrolling in portrait orientation on the device. Specifically, text on the left side of the screen appears to lag slightly behind text on the right side of the screen when scrolling.

The lawsuit, filed in the Northern California District Court, alleges that Apple is aware of the defect but continues to sell the iPad mini without repairing the defect or altering its marketing materials to reflect the existence of the defect.

In late September, an Apple spokesperson said the effect was “normal behavior for LCD screens,” according to Ars-Technicais Andrew Cunningham. iFixit also said the effect is common for displays, but the repair company speculated it could be more prominent on the new iPad mini due to the display’s controller board being mounted. vertically inside the device, rather than horizontally like in the fourth generation iPad Air. .

The lawsuit seeks damages in an amount to be proven at trial for anyone in the United States who purchased a new sixth-generation iPad mini. The proposed class still needs to be certified before the class action can proceed.
