Apple Smart Keyboard Folio Case Issue

Hi, for those who uses Apple smart keyboard folio case, do u all have issue with its edge splitting?
Mine is 11" model and the edges along left keyboard of the folio case is splitting/opening up. Looks like the adhesive is giving up. Got it on 17 Nov less than 1 month only. Folio case under warranty? Wonder is this cover under warranty. Tried my best to take pictures but pictures still blur.

Go to Apple and replace. There is a short duration for accessories warranties

Contact Apple using apple chat. They will ask for the serial number and check if its under warranty. Send them a pic of the damage as well. Recently i did that for my apple pencil 2 issue.

I dropped the pencil afew times and the tip was damaged. Now i see your case i am quite worried if this batch of apple accessories is poorly made. Hope not. I bought the keyboard case as well.

Already used apple chat to inform them of the issue. However the CSO i chat with are not able to say is it exchangeable or must sent in for repair... Also he is not able to book an appointment slot for Apple orchard(i choose this) due to full. He advise me to bring the invoice and case down to apple store and see what they can do. Got case ID log for this.

Seems like no resolution..

Your Apple-branded or Beats-branded hardware product (“Product”) is warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for a period of ONE (1) YEAR from the date of original retail purchase (“Warranty Period”)

Go Apple Store bring the receipt along.

I don’t see any issue with Apple offering a replacement or refund for you. Don’t have to worry too much. Your case is just a one off.

2 years means the 10.5Ē Pro. Iíve been using Logitechís Slim Combo (using smart connector). Yes it may not be as slim as it is but I absolutely love it! Just got my second one two days back as my first one the Apple Pencil holder loop became loose over time and the Pencil tends to slip out when held vertically.
