Apple Admits the New iPad Could Be Prone to Bending

Apple says some 2018 iPad Pros ship with a bent body, but claims this is normal

Bending iPad Pros does not appear to be associated to the benefit at which they will bend beneath stress, as proven by well-liked YouTuber and destroyer of devices Zack Nelson of the JerryRigsEverything YouTube channel.

If your new 2018 Apple iPad Pro arrives with a slight bend in its aluminum chassis, you might consider it to be a defect.

More specifically, a "cooling process involving the iPad Pro's metal and plastic components during manufacturing".

Apple has as of late launched its non-Pro iPad the 9.7-inch display back in March this year.

If you can see the slight bend on your new iPad Pro out of the box, you can return it within 14-day return window available at Apple Store or other retailers.

Apple said some of the devices were shipped with a slight bend but assured affected owners that it "shouldn't worsen over time or negatively affect the flagship iPad's performance", The Verge reported.

Apple has confirmed on Wednesday that some of the company's new iPad Pro devices are shipping slightly bent out of the box.

Apple fans also suffered through the touchscreen error "Touch Disease", a raft of application issues, a forced U2 album on iTunes and the alleged slowing of iPhones upon new smartphone releases.

"And I can personally vouch it: my 11-inch iPad Pro showed some curvature in two weeks", - the journalist writes The Verge, Chris Welch.

The iPad Pro (Review) is a terrific-yet-flawed piece of machinery.

Of course, the many pro-Apple sites out there aren't getting angry at it (not surprising) and even The Verge says "the fuss is over nothing".

Certainly, Apple confirming a manufacturing issue on one of its product happens just as the worst possible time, as many accuse the company of charging a premium for its devices without actually offering the value you'd normally expect.
