I think with the smart folio or any decent / tough cases, it'd be tougher to get bent..
Smart folio isn’t a tough case. As thin as cardboard.

I really think unless you bend it like those idiots on YouTube it shouldn't bend that easily especially when the set on hand doesn't have any issues.

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.
Thickness of the material aside, I believe the rigidity is dependant on the way they design the structure. This is not the first time this bendgate happened, ie, starting with iPhone 6 Plus. Apple later revised the design internally to strengthen the structure. This is also a result of Apple's obsession with making their products ever thinner.

The "idiots" that you mentioned pointed out a serious flaw. While we won't purposely bend it since it cost so much, you may rest on it if it's in your bag. The last thing you want is to bend it. And the critical point mentioned is that it bends very easily, which I don't hear often.

Am just worried if I need it to be placed inside my bag-pack, travelling with it in a long period of time and it got bent naturally... Of course not going to do it on purpose etc..

Those iPads with Touch ID or home button, won’t bend. Only the newer design will bend.

Does anyone having burn mark on you Apple Pencil, at the magnetic charging port?
Mine is pretty bad. Wonder is it a “feature” or is it a defect.

Don’t know how to post a pic here....

True also. Perhaps the frame itself isn’t so sturdy. Even though Apple’s target is to make the new iPad Pros as thin and light as possible, being so costly also shouldn’t be compromising the structure of it.

The science of it is the larger the surface area and also the thinner it is, bending is more susceptible, talking about similar materials. Apple stating that it’s normal to be slightly bent right out the box due to bonding process to me is not acceptable. If I paid over $1k for the device, I expected it to be in good condition aesthetically as well and not with flaws which you can obviously see, especially when it’s brand new.

I’d still just go with Adobe Photoshop/Lightroom but I’m using it on my MBP instead. If you wish to try others, Pixelmator is also a good second choice.

And oh yes, also welcome you to the iPad Pro club but for me, I’m using the 2017 model.
