my experience purchasing the new iPad Pro has changed that. I never had issues buying apple products around the quality control. I’m sorry but for a 1400 dollar device after taxes it better be damn near perfect. I have been through like 8 iPad pros. 12.9. You open one up and it’s like going through a checklist and praying you hit the lottery. My checklist- -screen too warm and yellow with true tone on or off in comparison to store or other models -warped aluminum out the box -uneven backlight around the edges -panel uniformity -dead pixels I thought I finally found the perfect 12.9 checked all those boxes until I went to a site that had a solid dark gray in the middle. Boom: terrible gray uniformity I guess when the majority of your customers don’t look for this you can get away with it but for the rest of us. Wow.
