In October last year, Apple unveiled its new iMac lineup, which also featured a brilliant 27-inches LED-backlit display model in a new edge-to-edge glass design and seamless all aluminum enclosure. Unfortunately, this pretty beast, which was powered by Core 2 Duo/Core i5/Core i7 had display issues at launch, most notably flickering and yellow screens which was later acknowledged by Apple.
Apple also released a statement, admitting the production issues with iMac and intimated that the same has been taken care of.
We’ve addressed the issues that caused display flickering and yellow tint. Customers concerned that their iMac is affected should contact AppleCare.
Today, we officially come to know through a yet another reply email from Steve Jobs, that all the issues with iMac have been finally resolved. The following message was sent by Frode Ersfjord to Jobs’:
When is Apple going to start consistently producing iMac displays without; yellow tinge, grey bars and horrible backlight bleeds?
I’m sick of calling Apple Care. I don’t need perfect, just halfway decent.
Steve Jobs replied:
This problem is behind us.
