Ipad burnt mark and new mini keyboard feature

My ipad pro 2017 has a burnt mark.. it is less than one year.
I think quite a lot of ipad have these burnt mark..
What should i do? Go for warranty or leave it?

The mini keyboard is quite useful.. but it will be better if the size can be customized by user... now seems to be only one fixed size of the mini.. right?

What burn mark? If you mean the bright spot then yes a lot of users holding to iPad Pro 2017 has it.

Mine has it and I did a 1 to 1 exchange last year and until now still don’t have the bright spot.

Snow eagle also one of them who experienced this issue

That's right. I bought mine in May last year, 2 mths later the screen mark appeared abt 1-inch above the home button. Sent to Apple Store for 1-1 replacement and earlier this year happened again, did the same thing with Apple and now warranty expired, recently seems to start to appear again.

I suppose this is hardware issue with the 2017 iPad Pro so no point getting anymore replacement. In future just replace with a new Pro.

Just thinking if i go for replacement, will there still be stocks for me.. afraid will take long for replacement and i have nothing to use.
And afraid if i live with this, later it got worsen.

Any one has any comment on the mini keyboard?

That one not burnt mark. You have warranty? No point replacing if it’s out of warranty. It will cost you like $600-$800.

My 1st gen iPad Pro 12.9 has burnt mark 1-2 months after warranty ends so I’ll just live with it.

Stocks wise you've to find out from Apple. 1-1 replacement is immediate unless Apple suggests replacing the screen, which may take a few hrs. If out of warranty, can also buy a replacement set, but if that might as well upgrade the iPad.
