hello guys i have a question i want to buy the ipad pro 11" wifi model but i am worried about the bending and the touchscreen threads i read here. in my country (greece) we don't have apple stores but apple's official survice providers in case of survice needing. What would you advice me to do? Buy this tablet for university reasons with apple pencil or not? Also is it possible that apple wil realise a new ipad in march and if so will it be available soon or after months?

Bending issue does exist, most of which don’t observe any cosmetic damage. Those cables and components are so thin, some light force can damage or destroy them, while you see nothing happens on the body.

I use a rigid case with a soft lip to cover the edge of the iPad And absorb shock if dropped. I also get a case that has a mag cover for the screen when closed and a place for my pencil.

I also prefer the screen cover to fold and act as a stand. my preference is a landscape mode usage. I don‘t use the keyboard.

I have the 11" Cellular Model aswell, and even I was too worried about what if I get a bent model after reading here. I waited 6 months before I took the plunge to buy, and am a Happy User that none of those issues came with my purchase. Just dont put too much heavy things on it.

I have a 12.9 iPad Pro from 2017. Never used a case, and they had that "bentgate" too. Not a scratch on it, no bending, just pure joy from using it. Don't worry too much - if you need/want it, just buy it. Faulty devices can always happen. Some issues get way overblown, especially in these forums. But I'd wait for the possible March event too - the newest iPad will be great if the rumors turn out to be true!
