Apple’s Policy On Dead Pixels Slips Out.


Ever wonder what Apple’s super secretive policy on dead pixels was? Thanks to BGR and some of his ever stealthy ninjas, we now know. On that note, it’s particularly unsettling to know that your 27″-30″ Apple monitor is allowed up to 15 dead pixels (max: 8 bright/10 dark) before Apple has to do anything. Granted, out of 3,686,400 pixels, 15 seem like a drop in the bucket. But as many of you whom have had the unfortunate encounter with dead pixels know, even one can be annoying. Also worth noting is that while these are guidelines for Apple Geniuses to go by, they are by no means bound to them — You can get your Apple device replaced even below the pixel threshold if the Apple Genius says so.

Smaller screened users (iPhone/iPod) have it a bit better. 1 lonely, dead pixel is all that’s needed to warrant a complete replacement. Thoughts?
