    With everybody talking about this screen retention issue on the iPad Mini retina display, I decided to test my mini and it did have it. Doesn't bother me. You won't notice it unless you run the test. So last night a decided to run the test on my Air and it did have it too. No big deal. You won't notice it unless you test it. Has anybody else tried running the test on their Air?

    If I run this test on my RMini, do I have to let it run for the full 10 minutes?

    I just ran it on my day old Air - no retention on this one, nor on wife's rMini.

    Yes, run for 10 minutes - but you'll need to go into Settings, General, and set Screen lock to say 15 minutes (just to do the test). That way, your display will remain illuminated. Don't watch the display, because your eyes will get "retention" so when the screen turns grey after 10 minutes it might give you a false result.

    I'd like to know why some Airs have this "issue", yet others don't.

    I just run it for 2 minutes. That enough time to tell.

    If I leave a pattern like that on my TV, it will prove to have retention as well. Not an issue unless you see it in regular usage.

    I ran it on my Mini Retina. No problems that I can see.

    I think it has to do with who makes the display, Apple gets their displays from different places. I think Sharp and LG. I think one may be affected and not the other,or more prevalent in one, and not the other.

    I'm not even going to try that out. In normal use I haven't even seen a hint of a problem.

    And you don't see it on regular use. Air nor Mini.

    I do not have a retina mini, but no I don't see any retention on my iPad air in regular use and I'm often using it for hours at a time although not necessarily in the same app the whole time.

    Why go looking for trouble when you can't see it on regular usage.

    I used to be like this but after therapy I've gotten better and learned to enjoy my toys instead of severely putting it on a microscope.
