Don't worry, Apple says it's quite normal....but you wouldn't want one....would you?

This gave me quite a chuckle today but for all those waiting for one? Definitely not appleFear

Personally, I wouldn't want anything Apple produced.

 

That said, I'm not sure I'd want any tablet with a bend in it regardless of what the manufacturer said. You expect something new out of the box to be perfect without any defects. And this is a defect whatever Apple say.

Lover of all things Samsung. Currently using Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus 128gb

Wow. That is shocking, even by Apple standards.
I would swap that if I had one. Which I don't because they are way out of my price range!

Just saying, and let's not read too much into this...
But the one that I've seen is not a bent one.
Seems that the 12.9" model is more affected and the 11" has a thicker ratio.

Though the one shown in the article is bent. So bent in fact that Apple will replace it....

Should've lined the Aluminium with steel strips, but I guess that 20p each could have crippled them...

If you haven't seen this yet, you should watch this and be shocked at how little pressure it takes:

Scary @sheepdog but let's be grateful it won't fit into the back pocket of your jeans!pensive
