Apple confirms that some 2018 iPad Pros are slightly bent

Want to get someone an iPad for Christmas? This is the deal you've been waiting for

Either way, if you're looking to purchase a new iPad Pro, it's worthwhile talking to the sales representative or store you're buying from if they're aware of the bending issue.

There are numerous stories and images of very slight bends on brand-new devices on the MacRumors forums, and The Verge's Chris Welch observed the same issue in his own iPad.

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.

The curvature is a result of the manufacturing process and would occur during Cooling of the used plastic and metal components, said Apple and the Tech Blog "The Verge" on request.

Apple has as of late launched its non-Pro iPad the 9.7-inch display back in March this year. The difference between the two is a plastic strip, which separates the metal on the two sides for the data connectivity signal. Apple can claim whatever it wants, but the bottom line is these units should become bent out of the box.

A user noticed his iPad was bent after a couple of weeks and thought it was because he keeps it in his backpack.

The Russell 2000 is down 24 percent from the peak it reached in late August and it's down 14 percent for the year to date. Stock indexes are meandering up and down in midday trading as the market steadies following two days of steep drops.

The "bendgate" issue that the new iPad Pros have been facing is now confirmed by Apple, but the company states that it is not a defect.

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.

Even if Apple claims it to be normal, I don't think it is normal at all. Apple in its statement acknowledged that this issue can happen out of the box.

The problem apparently affects the cellular LTE iPads the most, although it isn't limited to just this device. Apple has said that slight bending could be found in both 11-inches and 12.9-inches models.
