i got an iPad Pro 12.9 2018 last week and it’s fine except the case and screen suffer a lot of vibration while playing anything out of the speakers. Even if I have the volume low it’s the same.

Kinda reminds me of the older iPad Air models that suffered the same.

Is this normal on the iPad Pro though.

The iPad Air 2 definitely had that problem. I found that annoying while others didn't. Part of that was the sound enhancement Apple used by making the casing in such a way that the bass sounded really good for a tablet but it caused a vibration you could feel. I owned an iPad Air 2 and sold it but not the iPP 12.9" but you are the first on this forum to notice that. If you are within the warranty period you might want to get it swapped to see if you might have gotten a defective one.

Ok cheers for the replies.

I’m not sure if it’s just because it has very good punchy loud sound compared to my old 12.9 iPad Pro 2015 model, the new one is much louder and more detailed than my old one.

The only think I don't like is the screen vibrating as it can feel like your getting an electric shock on your finger when your playing for example music videos on YouTube etc. The back well vibrates.

That perfectly describes the iPad Air 2. You might want to try another one if you are within the return window. One solution others tried that helped somewhat was to put the iPad in a leather folio case but even then you'll probably feel the buzz when touching the screen

The only thing that has worked to eliminate the problem is to use ear/headphones.
