Some 2018 iPad Pros Are Shipped Bent, Apple Says It's Normal And Not A Defect
Mac Rumors gave me the first tech laugh of the day to day. They reported earlier that some new iPads, new 2018 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pros, were demonstrating bends and I assumed manufacturing or a packaging defect. But when I saw the Apple's answer, I could not help but laugh. I certainly will NOT take a bent iPad for my good money.

The Verge suggests that those who are irritated by the bend "shouldn't have any trouble exchanging or returning" an iPad Pro at an Apple Store, but that statement likely only applies to devices that are still under the return policy. Apple typically does not replace devices experiencing issues that are not considered manufacturing defects, so it's not entirely clear if those with bent tablets outside of the return period will be able to get replacements.
