As we know, Apple have made the iPad Mini screen smaller, and the bezel even smaller.
Well, the first question i had was “What if my thumb is resting and it accidentally gets pressed on the screen?”
Well, Apple has now answered that question.
In the new iPad Mini video, they explain it too!
Basically, Apple engineers have put in a new technology only for the iPad Mini, to whether your thumb is simply resting on the bezel or interacting with the screen.
Here is what Apple says ;
iPad mini is small. But when you use it, it doesn’t feel small. That’s because it’s designed to give you the maximum amount of screen in the minimum amount of space. To achieve that, we had to rethink the relationship between the screen and the overall shape of the product. iPad has symmetrical bezels around all of its edges. But for iPad mini, we reduced the width of the bezels on two sides of the display. So although the screen is smaller, it’s even more prominent. Rethinking the screen meant we also had to rethink the software behind it. iPad mini intelligently recognizes whether your thumb is simply resting on the display or whether you’re intentionally interacting with it. It’s the kind of detail you’ll notice — by not noticing it. And it’s a great example of how Apple hardware and software work together to give you the best experience possible.
So according to Apple, you do not need to worry about accidentally touching the screen when you didnt want to!
