    Wow. Was it just sitting there and you found it bent or was it under any pressure at all? Mine hasn't had that issue.

    Your photo is too vague to show what type of device that is. The iPad Pro is a sturdy device, and I can't see it bending on its own, even inside a protective casing.

    I've owned probably all of the iPads that have been released and never seen one bend. My 12.9 iPad Pro has a couple minor dings, iPad Mini 4 has the traditional slightly scuffed chamfered edge in places, 9.7 iPad Pro is basically perfect. Never seen a bend though. Any idea how it bent?

    I'm sorry, but I find it really hard to believe that two separate iPads have mysteriously bent like that. No way.

    I've probably owned every iPad except the 12.9 inch Pro (prefer the 9.7) and I've yet to see one bent.

    Not going to bend on its own, surprised the retailer took it back. Next time you get one, lay it on the table before you leave to make sure it's flat and be done.

    It is imposible for an IPAD to bend on it's own! Stop trying to carry it in your Skinny Jean back Pockets!

    Ha 2 iPad in succession magically bending with no human contact!! Very likely, you should get a big compensation payout for your inconvenience....

    On a more serious not this seems like bull****

    So let me get this straight. You applied no pressure at all. You set it down, left, came back, and it was bent? And this has happened twice?

    My iPad Pro wasn't working consistently with the Apple Smart Keyboard so about a month ago I took both into an Apple Store and they discovered my iPad was bent pretty badly around the smart connector area. It was warped and all I can figure was heat as it has never been dropped. I had a skin on the back as well as the black hard plastic Smart Cover. I am trying to upload a couple of pictures that I took of it before getting a replacement as it was much worse looking that the OP's photo!


    Now if you look at the photos closely you'll see most of the warping is right around the 3 pin connectors. And when we spun the iPad over to the top it laid down flush so all the warping was just at the bottom of the iPad.

    Hi my iPad has bent in the exact same way. I agree that it probably faced pressure, but I keep it in the Logitech Create Keyboard Case, and it should not bend so easily. Did Apple replace your iPad?

    What is the latest on this? I'm intrigued. I wonder if excess heat (in the kitchen or something), would cause an issue like this...

    I purchased my iPad Pro shortly after it was released, and it has NEVER been covered in a skin or a protective case and does not have a screen protector on it. Yet, it has yet to bend. I don't baby it and I have used it to the point of the device getting very warm to the touch. Until mine bends, I'm not going to be convinced that those devices bent on their own. Either the owner did it purposely, accidentally or indirectly while trying to protect t it via a skin or case. At least that's my opinion....

    This is exactly what has happened to my 9.7' iPad Pro. I am sure that it is my Smart Keyboard that has caused it as it has bent exactly where the magnetic connection is. I have hardly used the iPad however when I tried to type using the smart keyboard it was not working so I took a closer look and then noticed the bend. I have not reported it to Apple yet. Do you think they will not take responsibility?

    What Smart Keyboard? If you're referring to the Apple Smart Keyboard then no, and they shouldn't, in my opinion. The Apple Smart Keyboard does not wrap around the iPad Pro at all and the 3 magnetic dots do not connect to the point where it takes excessive force to detach the keyboard from the device. My Apple Smart Keyboard is almost always attached to my iPad Pro, and I'm talking 24/7. I'm not saying that your iPad isn't bent, but I am saying that you will not be able to convince me that the Apple Smart Keyboard, if that's what you're referring to, is the culprit.
