    I think that's normal but I could be wrong, I would imagine it being hard for Apple to mis-align a port

    Terribly? Not seeing anything based off your photo. Maybe seeing it in person would make a difference.

    probably.

    Its flush with the right side, but as you can see there is space on the left side toward the top

    I see what you mean now, I thought that might just be the angle. If it's bugging you you could get a refund and replace it with another model, but first check in stores to see if any other models have the issue

    Perhaps I'm not looking close enough. It's a strange issue. Apple will easily exchange it for you.

    Yes some are off center which can be very annoying as these things are not cheap. I returned two 9.7-inch iPad Pro's last year for this same issue. If it bothers you and you have something else wrong like uneven backlight or scratches along the chamfered edges definitely exchange it otherwise if this is the only thing I'd definitely keep it as you could get something worse.

    Seriously? That bothers you? My current 9.7 is like that.

    If it really bothers you, you could take it to the Apple Store for comparison to the display models.

    Mine is slightly off center by a hair I suppose, but I advise you don't get into the swap out cycle. If you're bothered by something that minuscule, you're going to find something that bothers you on all the replacements too.

    I had a chip in one of the volume buttons. That's pretty annoying, but I would definitely keep yours with the headphone especially if everything else is perfect.

    I've seen that many times and thought nothing of it. If you got the space gray with the black jack you wouldn't even be able to see it anyway most likely.

    I'd be concerned if it was enough to be an issue when using a case - enough misalignment such that a plug won't fit if the case is on.

    Very true. As 90% of these iPads will be in cases where that would be a factor if the case and Jack did not align correctly. Then it certainly would be an issue.

    Apple charges premium prices for a premium product. I agree with the op.
