The slight bent on the brand new iPad Pro devices is apparently caused during the cooling process of the device, according to Apple. Both the 11-inch and 12.9-inch devices are affected by the issue, and it’s more likely to affect the iPad Pro with LTE because of the external antenna lines.

Don't worry, it will straighten after it heats up.

My 10.5” Pro does not suffer from this bending issue. Though 0.2mm thicker, this difference in thickness will be sufficient to prevent it from this kind of bending? Else not sure if it’s just the manufacturing process contributing to this issue.

to be honest we can't put off the fact that single report exaggerated the whole incident. The issue is that apple sell tons of ipad, and statistically if 1 in may 10000 cases might seems little, but for apple that accounts to few hundred or thousand units that are affected. Which i truly feel that apple should speak up on this. They are best at product quality and such even as an apple fan i can't condone that explanation of bending due to cooling processes.

They probably did a cost benefit analysis already, profits outweigh (and easily pay for) any potential lawsuits while they deny all the way and gaslight/blame users for using their product wrongly.

Funny how they identified where it went 'wrong' in the manufacturing process yet can say its normal, and ardent Apple fans just lap it up.

The chances of having a bent ipad right of the box is very very rare. Just because you hear about online means every iPad Pro is like that. Sometimes a single report of a bent iPad Pro greatly exaggerates the incidences of a bent iPad Pro.
This. This was what I'm trying to drive at. This is just like the note 7 fiasco where reports are flying everywhere online. To me, if you are lucky enough to get a note 7 that exploded you probably are as unlucky to get hit on the road. I honestly doubt any of us here have gotten a bent iPad pro outta the box.

I mean no one expects perfection from each manufacturing batch but Apple is saying:

Relative to the issue you referenced regarding the new iPad Pro, its unibody design meets or exceeds all of Apple's high quality standards of design and precision manufacturing. We've carefully engineered it and every part of the manufacturing process is precisely measured and controlled.

I think that sounds like horsesh*t to me. cmon treating e customers as fools? just say it can be a rare manufacturing occurrence n they will replace it. no need to give bs. 🙄

1.) Yes. You can do that via the Google Drive app.

2. Pages by Apple can do that and give you the option to save it locally, Share it via apps like mail or anything.. or just save to your Google Drive via the Google Drive app.

Google Word can do that but it saves docx to your Google Drive.

That's great! Cos I find the latest iPad pro is faster than any laptop in the market now. Some more so freaking light.

Only set backs are the accessories are so expensive.

Anyway I will be getting one next week.

Should head down to Apple store or buy at Apple store online?

For those who connect their ipad pro via hdmi to their monitor, do you get black borders at the side of the screen?

I think with the smart folio or any decent / tough cases, it'd be tougher to get bent..
