Ok, so i bought an ipad2 1,5 years ago and everthing was fine i was satisfied with thr colors and display. Then ipad 3 appeared and it just blew my mind with its retina display. Now for big surprise the ipad4 also appeared i wanted to buy n ipad3 becouse of the retina and old connector, but my friends told me to better buy an ipad4 becouse it has a faster pcu and better cameras. That is all true. However i noticed a big difference between ipad 3 and ipad4: the color profile. While the ipad 3 has a nice warm color profile, similar to my iphone4s and ipad2, the ipad 4 has a very cold color profile, where the blue is almost purple. It is very striking in the google search fr example. Normally i am used to blue result links and purple visited links. But now it seems like every result link was already visited. Disturbing. Sadly there is no color profile adjuster in the settings so dont know what to do how can i change the color profile without jailbrek? I am pretty shure they wont replace the tablet for me since that is a very subjective problem.

iPad, iOS 6

    Oxidkeja-

     

    If you arre near an Apple Store, it would be worth showing your iPad to one of their Geniuses.  From your description, the cold color is not reasonable at all.  If the Genius can not easily fix it, you should get a replacement on the spot.

    You might create an image on your computer, of a color calibration chart showing standard colors.  Transfer it to the iPad and see how it looks there.  If there is a significant color shift, you could at least complain about it.

     

    Also see if increasing the iPad display brightness helps.  From the Home screen, double click the Home button.  A space opens up along the bottom of the screen showing the icons of recent Apps.  Wipe your finger there to your right, and a group of controls should appear.  The control marked with a snowflake or asterisk, adjusts screen brightness.

     

    There is also a brightness adjustment in Settings-Brightness & Wallpaper.

    Unless you have only seen copies of the iPad 4 that were all from a single bad batch, it would be good to let Apple know there is a problem.  I suggest you leave feedback at <iPad Feedback>.


    Your experience is discouraging.  I have the iPad 2, and would not want to "upgrade" to a new model that has bad colors!

    Not to worry Fred I have an iPad 4 and there is no problem with the color of the screen at all. What nonsense.

    I do not have an iPad 4, but I can compare my iPad 2 with the LED Cinema Display of my Mac Pro.  I find the iPad 2 to be somewhat lighter or warmer, especially at the blue side of your colorschemedesigner circle.

     

    The Mac Pro has a noticeably deeper blue.  I routinely work with color photos on the Mac Pro and like the results I get, but can't judge which is more accurate.

     

    I think you can get used to what you have, so you notice when there is a change.  Is it possible the iPad 4 actually has more accurate colors?  If you continue to work with the iPad 4, you might eventually think it has a better display than your iPad 2.
