The Verge claims that both its original iPad Pro 11 and a replacement one exhibited the bend. While that did raise some concerns about design flaws, they were quickly dismissed: who would just put effort into actively bending their own iPad in two anyway?

The company has confirmed that a number of 2018 iPad Pro tablets have a "slight bend" in their aluminum casing, blaming the defect on the manufacturing process.

But, according to the company, this is a side effect of the production process and should not negatively affect the performance of the flagship iPad.

The slight bent on the brand new iPad Pro devices is apparently caused during the cooling process of the device, according to Apple. Some reports claim that Apple's employees are telling customers that the resultant bend is due to accidental damage and warrants an AppleCare+ claim to replace the tablet.

Still, if your iPad Pro does sport a bend, you can exchange it or get a refund from Apple within the 14-day return window.


The realization that the 2018 iPad can bend came to light after YouTuber Zack Nelson from JerryRigEverything bent his iPad Pro in half using his bare hands.

The Verge has reported that some of this year's iPad Pros are shipping with a minor bend on their aluminum body. But it's clear from forums and other outlets that it's a real issue. However, Apple has now confirmed the defect, but also said that it is totally normal.

"I have an approx 1in spot on my iPad Pro screen which is brighter than the rest of the screen - it's unevenly lit".

The Apple is not considered the Bending as a Defect, the customer with clear consequences: you cannot expect compensation, but not more than grace hope.

In its statement to the Verge, Apple says it hasn't seen an above average return rate for the new iPad Pro.
