I have a fifth generation, 12.9” iPad Pro that I’ve had for about a year and a half now. My use has been mostly been with it attached to my Magic Keyboard.

Tonight I used it without the keyboard and noticed as I was holding it, and putting light pressure on the rear case with my hand, that the case gave in slightly, enough to make a clicking sound. Almost like there’s a gap between the rear case and the nearest inside component that’s creating a clock when gentle pressure is applied.

Anything to be worried about? Is/was this a known issue with the larger iPad Pros?
