Did your 10.5 suffer from the white spot problem? I like the 10.5 but Everyday live in fear that once warranty is over the white spot will appear.
Someone mention the white spot is due to the laiminated screen. If this is the case, most will be affected

After 2days of usage



The photos and videos here are in my iphone also does it mean it also consume iPad storage space? I thought it should stay in the icloud only?

I find it weird i only have 20gb storage used but i have more apps in my phone and photos are there but my ipad storage consumes bigger storage space...

before I sold my IPP 11", Notice white spot and managed to replace it 1:1 exchange.. It's common issue apparently on new pro model too and can exchange

(it's only noticeable also with white background notice it when i factory reset)

Glad you asked haha....I bought my 10.5 Pro on 5th May last year, 11 Aug went to Apple Store to get a 1-1 replacement because of that problem and only on Tuesday went back again for 1-1 replacement on the same issue.

So 2 replacements within the warranty period. And I know it's my last replacement. Bad thing is that previous 2 replacements have to sacrifice my Zagg InvisibleShield Glass+ SP and now using a Devia one.

Wow seems like it affects both the 10.5 and 11....

So likely to be the same for the 2019 Air too...

Why can’t they get it right????

For a start you cannot store your apps on iCloud...

The white spots seems to affect the laminated screen which means iPad mini, iPad Pro 9.7, iPad Pro 10.5, iPad Pro 11 and iPad Pro 12.9 all affected.

I guess matter of heng/ sua

Not sure but eventually this new replacement will have the same issue. But till then, I'll just use it until I get a new Pro model.

But if laminated display's to blame, my mini 4 bought since launch in 2015 used until last year don't have this problem and it's also a laminated display.

Should I get iPad mini 5 in wifi or cellular? Really can’t decide... can get the $0 plan from Circles.Life to use so it’s convenient but it’s a full $200 extra just for a SIM card slot lol

Tpg has 1 year trial and as of now it comes with unlimited data.

So if you estimate your value for 1 year data from
Tpg and maybe also with circles.
You probably get more than the $200?
