The 2018 iPad Pro was announced on October 30 and released for sale on November 7.
Apple explained that the bend is actually the result of a cooling process involving the metal and plastic components of the tablets.
Now, in an interview with The Verge, Apple has confirmed some of the 2018 iPad Pros were shipped with distinct bends. But what about if your iPad Pro arrived with a bend in the casing? JerryRigEverything does the build quality test of all gadgets and he found the new iPad Pro really weak.
This response from Apple comes after scores of reports with people pointing out the slight bend on their iPads and wondering if it's a manufacturing defect or if they've been misusing their devices.
It remains to be seen how many more buyers react to Apple's confirmation about the bend being normal.
While this isn't clearly the behavior you'd normally expect from a premium Apple product, Cupertino told The Verge in a statement that this is nothing to worry about. However, Apple's policies say it won't replace the devices that are facing issues that aren't covered under manufacturing devices.
The latest 9.7-inch iPad is seeing a $100 discount for both the 32GB and 128GB models. Further, the screen has the True Tone feature, which is also similar to recent iPhone models.
