Hey...just saw this-my iPad mini is just over 2 years old(so...just out of warranty-funny hey?) and I have this problem too.Drives me crazy.I took it to an Apple store in Broadway,Sydney Australia last month where they performed a diagnostic test and informed me the screen was "failing". When I asked them if it could be fixed they said no.I could replace the unit-at a price-just under $400!This because it was out of warranty-and when I pointed out that a $500 gadget should last beyond 2 years they agreed but said there was nothing they could do. So I said to them-"so it's basically junk now?" they shrugged and agreed. Seeing how many people online have this same problem going back 5 years-Apple obviously don't give a crap and haven't fixed it. It may be a cool gadget but once I throw it out my lovr affair with crappy Apple stuff is OVER. May not be quite as cool but I may as well take my money to Samsung. Over it.
