Apple ships new iPad Pros already bent

Apple logoUsers are reporting that some 2018 iPad Pros are being shipped already slightly bent. Apple says it’s true and that it’s not a defect.

Imagine ordering a 2018 iPad Pro and receiving its slightly bent. It’s not an ideal situation, but at least you figure that it’s not your fault. The problem arises when Apple says that they don’t consider it to be a defect, and you start to get that “hold the phone a different way for a better signal.”

Apple insisting that it’s not actually a problem falls well within the companies’ policy that feels a lot like the Narcissist's Prayer.

Apple ships new iPad Pros already bent

The company knew about the fact that some versions of the 2018 iPad Pro are bending way too easy. The LTE iteration seems to be the most exposed because the metal frame also contains a little bit of plastic on the sides, making it more susceptible to outside forces.

Users have been complaining for a while that their iPad Pros are bending after being used, but it turns out that they can ship already bent. According to The Verge, Apple recognizes that it’s a manufacturing defect, but they claim it doesn’t affect performance in any way. It's a just a rapid cooling issue on the assembly line.

Now it’s up to Apple customers to decide if they want the first curved tablet or if they settle for a regular version.
