Hi guys,

Just got a new Ipad Air 3 and I really like it so far. However, I noticed a small 'scratch' in the top right on the bezel area and I couldn't figure out what this was. I'm not sure if it even is a scratch or whether it is just the way light is being reflected, but it is kind of annoying and I managed to see it without specifcally looking for something wrong with my new device. I took a picture because I couldn't figure out what was causing this and I can zoom in with my camera (I also know I haven't bumped it because it has barely left it's box). The edge of the glass (near the metal) appears to be slightly deformed on the corner.

I know this is small and I'm being over the top but I'm mainly trying to figure out if this is something that is normal or not, and it does make the front of the screen appear that it has been scratched somehow.

Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks :)

Can you feel the scratch with your finger nail, or is the finish smooth with the scratch under the surface? If the latter, I'd say it's a slight manufacturing defect but to me the deformed edge would be enough to request a replacement.

Where's the scratch? Could you circle it?
