Is the iPad 2 screen bleeding?
Update: Seems that this problem might actually be affecting more than the 5% of iPad 2 owners originally predicted. How widespread the issue actually is, we can’t be certain till reports come in from all over the globe (The iPad 2 went on sale today in numerous countries). Sound off in the comments below if you’ve had this problem.

For the last 48 hours, reports have been flying in from new iPad 2 owners, their iPad’s have whats known as ‘screen bleeding’. Roughly, Screen Bleeding is a term used to describe what happens to a product with LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screen’s meaning that they are most likely defective. What happens is that the white ‘backlight’ starts appearing from the edges of the display, and starts appearing on screen.
The issue is most noticeable when users are on a dark screen, such as a movie, app, or internet page. If you are one of those users who has been effected, it is reported that you can minimize, but not fix, the issue by adjusting the brightness settings. Obviously this is just a quick bandage solution, and we’ll have to wait to hear from Apple themselves if this is a widespread problem and if a fix is on the way; or if it’s just bad luck for certain users. Of course, this is nothing new, as with all new products launched you will have a small percentage of products with defects.
We think it’s probably a small issue which is only affecting (maybe) 5% of the iPad 2 owners. But as with any problem reported, we’ll have to wait, and find out more in due time.
