- Apple is being sued over 'jelly scrolling' on its iPad mini 6.

A Colorado resident has sued Apple over claims that its iPad mini 6 is defective because of a 'jelly scrolling' issue with the tablet's display.
In a court filing Wednesday spotted by MacRumors, Christopher Bryan launched his action against the company over the iPad mini 6. While the device is considered one of Apple's best iPads in recent years it has been marred by a defect that causes the screen to wobble, an issue Apple says is "normal behavior."
The action states:
The suit notes a multitude of complaints about the issue on Amazon review pages and online forums. The suit goes on to say that Apple's actions are unlawful because it acted " in an unethical, unscrupulous, outrageous, oppressive, and substantially injurious manner", promoting devices it knew to be defective and selling them against customer expectations that this would not occur. It also claims Apple failed to test the device properly before launch and seeks damages on behalf of everyone in the U.S. who bought the device.
