Apple iPad has undergone its most radical redesign this year with the new iPad Pros. These tablets are thinner than ever with smaller squares around the screen. However, there are questions as to whether they are durable enough. Some owners have complained about small turns in their new tablets, and now Apple confirms that some iPad pros are actually bent out of the box. However, it is as normal. Welcome to Bendgate 2.0.
In the weeks since Apple sent the updated iPad Pro, more users of the Macrumors forum have posted photos of their new tablets with unusual swings in the frame. Some say they developed the basket through regular use like being transported in a backpack while others insisted that they came out of the box.
Apple now admits yes, some iPads are bent. The company says that the cooling process involving the metal and plastic housing of the board can cause slight motion. However, Apple does not consider this a mistake. It claims that the bend will not get worse over time, and it does not affect the functionality of the tablet. Still, if you spend $ 800 to $ 1,900 on a tablet, you probably want it to be unpopular.
Many iPad owners suspect something was wrong ever since the YouTube Channel JerryRigEverything posted a bend test of the new iPad Pro. The video shows that the iPad Pro glass is extremely thin and the location of the inductive charge cut to the Apple pencil leaves a likely weak spot in the middle of the board. And you would not know, it does not seem to take much power at all to bend the iPad Pro in half, spoil it completely. Usually, the glass screen on a phone or tablet is a source of structural strength for flexible aluminum, but it seems to be too thin on iPad Pro.
Apple says it stands behind the durability of iPad Pro, but we've heard it before. The thin aluminum on the iPhone 6 made these phones easier to bend and contributed to the so-called "Touch Disease" in the iPhone 6 Plus. These turns were also worse over time, but Apple turns up and down that will not happen this time. No one would blame you for being skeptical of that requirement. If you get a bent iPad out of the box, it's probably smart to return it.
