    Has anyone else noticed this with their Apple case? Right where the case comes in contact with the 4 corners of the black bezel, there are some permanent marks left behind on mine. I've tried rubbing them off using a microfiber cloth along with iKlear, but they don't go away. They're perfectly curved and follow exactly where the edge of the case's interior overlays. Maybe my case is a little tighter than it should be? I don't know; just curious if I'm the only one seeing this.

    How long have you had the case? I've had mine for about a week and don't see anything.

    I've had my Apple case for about a week and a half and have not seen any marks on the corner of my iPad. My iPad actually slides in and out of the Apple case very easily.

    This is not caused by any case. When Apple applies the oleo phobic coating on the iPad screen, the glass is held in place by those four corners. No coating is applied to those parts of the screen, therefore it gives the appearance of "markings."

    Thanks for the clarity on this subject as I noticed this on my iPad as well. I've never used the apple case so I was thinking it might happen in production and your post confirms that.

    I'll say it's VERY hard to see this and you only really notice it under certain light and at certain angles when you are really looking for it.

    Overall not a big deal at all but again good to know it's normal.
