    Don't know if I'm crazy because maybe it's always been like this, but my screen now seems to be surrounded by a 1mm border.

    I'm fairly sure that it was previously flush, right to the edge. What I mean by this is that it touched the edges of the black areas on the top and bottom of the device.

    I've attached an image, which isn't the best of quality. But it shows the 1mm border directly above the title bar. There is a gap between the black area and where my backlight starts

    It helps if you zoom out using your browser, or move further away from your screen.

    I've tried resprining and restarting the device so maybe I'm just crazy

    Just started school again, and I only noticed it today at my new environment

    Never noticed it at home or at work. Glad to know it's not just me.

    Thanks guys

    its completely normal. that part isnt the pixel part. its just a border of non-pixely stuff Apple likes to trick some of us with.
