IPad Pro blighted by spots

Share

While I initially passed off the video as yet another YouTuber attempting to push a product to its limits for views, it looks like JerryRigEverything's video might have been indicative of a broader issue with the 2018 iPad Pro. However, it is missing one key feature, according to Jon Gruber on Daring Fireball - split keyboard mode.

According to some customers, some 2018 iPad Pros are shipping with bending issues as well.

The Bendgate saga is about to receive a new sequel, as Apple has recently confirmed that the 2018 iPad Pro can indeed bend in certain conditions. It is unclear if the problem will impact the new 11 and 12.9-inch 2018 iPad Pro models, as these devices are too new and the problem appears to surface after several months of usage. The chassis on some new iPad Pro models are exhibiting a slight but still visible curve that's apparently there even as they're removed from their box for the first time. Nelson is known for his unusual scratch, bend and burn tests on smartphones and the occasional tablets. There are reports of some stores telling customers the bend counts as accidental damage and warrants an AppleCare+ claim.

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

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.

This bending is indeed caused by a special manufacturing process in which both the plastic and metal parts of the iPad get cooled down at the same time.

IPhone and iPad have always been subjected to bend tests to see how they hold up to abuse.

Apple said that in some cases, an iPad Pro might come with a bent chassis straight out of the box. Unfortunately, to make matters slightly more confusing, it seems that now there's not a clear message as to whether users are entitled to return bent iPads for brand new devices, or if the bending is categorised as accidental damage and therefore subject to an AppleCare claim.
