    Seems like the way to go do you not use cellular

    I have had the 12.9" since launch and have no bend and use it every day and can't even imagine how it could bend 'accidentally'.....

    So is it an established fact that the bent gift in the iPad Pro of 2018 is only for some Privileged people who opt for the Cellular version ?

    A staggering 3 people have a bent iPad. How bent? Within the four sheets of paper tolerance? Because that’s not really a problem in my opinion.

    Mine was an 11” WiFi, unbent.

    My 12.9” is straight in all directs and is a wonderful device. I have no complaints with the product.

    I think this issue is blown out of all proportions. If you are unlucky enough to receive one of the smaller percentage bent, then just return for replacement/refund. No big deal

    The last 12.9 inch LTE I returned in the store was also bent on the antennas.

    People should really stop looking at ways to justify their purchase decisions. Just be happy with your choice and move on.

    Are you saying all 11 LTE will have that visible bent at the antenna level? Because I may buy one this week... or will this be like the lottery?

    Did you check by looking down the edge? My 11” LTE was bent, my 12.9” LTE is bent too, and when I went to Apple Store to see if I can buy straight one, it was also bent, so I returned it right away and kept my current one.

    Here is a pic of my 12.9"...

    Wifi iPads on display in store were all straight. Interesting, but they used to have cellular on display before.

    I didn't see the bend until I looked down the edge. Now I can see it even when looking from the top or bottom, but it's not something that is super visible, so I can live with that. Disappointing though.

    I tried to measure it and it seems like it could be just slightly over their tolerance - around 0.5-0.6 mm. Although I'm not sure how flat is my desk and I don't have any precision instruments besides a regular ruler.

    Absolutely no issues with mine (11"; WiFi + Cellular). It's the best Apple product I have ever owned.

    It seems to me that you need to take your own advice.

    first world problems, bent here beny there, it's all what is going on this forum, imagine it came out the box without a battery, or without a sticker.... I wonder when all this bent overreacting will stop and people will begin to share stuff they do with their ipads, because all people do now is looking how bent it is, running to the store, running back and repeat all over

    Ya. Only WiFi on display. Shouldn’t a buyer expect the same as tested on the display.
