iPad mini 6 exhibits ‘jelly scrolling’ display refresh issue - 9to5Mac
Sep 26, 2021 1 min, 14 secs
Colloquially referred to as ‘jelly scrolling’, it seems that one side of the iPad mini display is refreshing slower than the other side, which appears as a noticeable wobble effect down the middle of the screen when content is moving quickly — like scrolling a web page.

One reader who contacted us said they went back to the Apple Store to replace their seemingly-broken iPad mini, only to find that all of the demo units on display also suffered from the exact same issue.

When looking at the iPad mini in portrait with the camera at the top, the right side of the display updates faster than the left side.

Here is is slow-mo video of scrolling on the iPad Min i slowed down EVEN MORE in a frame-by-frame step through.

It remains unclear whether this is the fault of the LCD panel itself, the display controllers, or a firmware/software issue.

With the display controllers mounted on the side rather than the bottom or top, it is possible that the display signals are simply reaching half of the screen faster, in which case the problem would be an inherent consequence of the hardware design.

Apple’s displays typically meet a very high specification of quality and other iPad models do not have this issue, or if they do it is way less noticeable.

It will be up to the individual to determine if the jelly scrolling issue is enough for them to give up on the iPad mini altogether.
