While reviews of the new 6th-generation iPad Mini have been generally positive, most point out an awkward “jelly scroll” effect. But Apple says it’s not a bug and that there’s nothing for it to fix.
The jelly scroll effect is a visual oddity in which the right and left sides of the display seem to be scrolling onscreen content at different speeds with a visible line down the middle. This is more noticeable in portrait mode, and it’s a problem from which previous-generation iPad Minis did not suffer.
“It’s the most noticeable when scrolling relatively slowly up and down a webpage or document,” Ars Technica notes. “The left side of the screen seems to trail the right side by just enough that paragraphs of text appear rubbery and wobbly to an attentive eye.”
Well, Apple is having none of that. The jelly scroll is “normal behavior,” it told the publication, and it will not be issuing a software or hardware fix.
Hey, at least the new iPad Mini isn’t expensive. \s
