Just want to add that I have a 2018 12.9 iPad Pro and it’s amazing. I also have the 10.5 2017 and that’s amazing too. I’ve not had any hardware issues with either of them and I would happily buy either again without hesitation. I don’t know just how widespread ‘bendgate’ is but no one I know has experienced it on any of their 12.9 machines.
MacWorld just updated the story
It seems to all have started after some idiot released a video on YouTube a few weeks ago showing how easy it was to bend a 12.9” iPad. Well duh...
The person who started this "iPad Pro Bendgate" issue just reported he was forced to pay $49.00 "fee" to get his tablet replaced. Plus, he was fortunate to have AppleCare+... without it, Apple would not have replaced it.
This is just insane.
Because Apple admits the iPad Pro bends - claiming this is normal:
