Has anyone’s 11” iPad arrived UN-bent?

How did you 11” IPAD PRO ARRIVE? How many times did you exchange to get one that wasn’t bent ?

Im curious if anyone’s Cellular 11inch came in without a bend? I’m getting my replacement from amazon tomorrow... and I don’t know how many times to give it a try (replacing that is), until I give up and go to 10.5?

I have the wifi and cellular model (11") and no issues here. It's still absolutely perfect.

I had a launch iPad 11 with Cellular that wasn't bent. On a trip I accidentally left it on the plane. Last week I picked up a replacement from AT&T and no perceivable bend there either.

No bends in mine, purchased on black friday, brand new. I have it in the Apple keyboard case with just a plastic cheap screen protector. I've checked it every couple weeks, no issues.

What's your deal dude, lol? What are you after?
This is exactly why i refuse to take the time to post pictures of my perfectly straight 11” ipad pro. These people are never gonna be satisfied, and will keep asking you to put a level on it or shoot it from every conceivable angle. I’m not gonna get sucked into their OCD. I ain’t got time for that. Lol.

He's trying to prove you're all somehow wrong (or deluding yourselves), because he's trying to justify not buying the more expensive one. I mean, just look at the thread title - it's worded as if the majority iPad Pros are bent, but yeah, some people get lucky and get straight ones (instead of some people being unlucky with the bent ones). I mean, even if the number of bent iPads was huge, like 10% - the chances of not getting a bent one would still be in your favor. And the number is most likely a lot lower. I've seen new iPad Pros in the store and a few friends have them and I'm yet to see one that is not straight. I'd also add that my 12.9" iPad Pro is straight as a lightsaber, but I fear I might be called upon to produce photo evidence, which I don't feel like doing :)

So, the motivation here is to decide the 10.5" is somehow a better choice. OP, just get the 10.5, it's a great iPad for less money, but don't ask people to "prove" their iPad Pros are straight.

I had to read this thread just because the title is so funny "arrived un-bent?" lol.

Yes, and the poll data confirms: most iPads are arriving un-bent, as shocking as that may be. ;-)

Got the 11 inch delivered in the uk (don’t live there, but an easier transaction). Wife brought it back, so had to unbox it for airport security. Stuffed it back into suitcase minus the packaging, and it arrived perfectly. The other day I left it on a sofa cushion, and a friend laid back, almost crushing it (I did wince, I must admit) - it was New Year!

But in the words of Black Adder, it’s still “straighter than a straight thing that’s just won the straight competition”

Just sayin’
