New M3 iPad Pros with OLED displays reportedly have a glitch when it comes to viewing HDR content

The new iPad Pro M4

An exclusive report by iMore says that the new 11-inch and 13-inch iPad Pros with M4 chips and OLED displays have a problem when it comes to viewing HDR content. 

From the report: In a relatively specific set of circumstances, HDR highlights are blown out on certain blue shades including navy and indigo to a point that they almost appear white on screen. The best way to spot it would be to look at a character wearing a navy blue shirt —  the creases appear to shimmer, like a spider’s web placed over the surface; at other times it appears like an inky blob morphing over it.

iMore says Apple is aware of the glitch, and is working on a software update to address it.
