Jelly Scrolling on the iPad Mini 6 was encountered when scrolling in portrait orientation; the left side of the display refreshes faster than the right side, rendering the screen to “Jelly Scroll.” Dieter Bohn, the Executive Editor of The Verge, brought this to notice. He tweeted about this, and this news blew up.

ARS Technica asked Apple for a response on the Jelly Scroll issue on the iPad Mini 6. Apple responded to the publication, and this is what they had to say,

“Apple has told us that the “jelly scroll” issue on the 6th-generation iPad mini is normal behaviour for LCD screens. Because these screens do refresh line by line, there is a tiny delay between when the lines at the top of the screen and lines at the bottom are refreshed. This can cause uneven scrolling issues like the ones observed on the iPad.”

However, this is not such a common issue and cannot be found on other iPads. The base USD 329 iPad does not have this issue. There were reports of the iPads encountering this issue, but that only happened after a user had dropped their iPad.

Now, if you notice the Jelly Scroll issue on your iPad Mini 6 and it is something that bothers you, Apple may or may not fix it with a software update. We are sure that you will not get a refund as Apple is not considering this as a manufacturing fault. If the Jelly scroll is bothering you, make sure to get your iPad Mini 6 replaced while it is still within the exchange/return policy timeframe.
