    I hate having cases on my iPad, I like the aesthetic of the iPad being thin and showing off the rose gold color when I can. I put a clear skin on the back which I really enjoy because it prevents any scratches that might occur when the iPad is on my desk. I noticed however that upon cleaning the iPad, the camera bump has become scuffed to the point it is noticeable. I don't slip my iPad around on the desk but I will lay it down and I am sure it shifts or it slides a bit when I pick it up. I have only had the iPad maybe 3 weeks. I am just curious if anyone else has noticed this? Probably the silver iPad would be best if this bothers some people. Again just something I noticed and was curious if others have noticed this too.

    Recently went naked on my iphone 6, no abuse, just regularly setting down on tables and surfaces, no surface being super abrasive (concrete, brick); getting the same thing.

    I have an iPad Air 1. The camera is flush with the housing. My clear skin protects the camera. Too bad the hump protrudes on the Pro. I just looked at my iPhone and yes the housing is scuffed on it. Sad.

    I've got a clear flexible silicone case on my iPad Pro. It's thick enough to keep the camera from coming into contact with a table surface so I haven't experienced that issue. It's not quite like being naked, but you can obviously see the iPad through it so it's a fine compromise for me.

    That being said, I think it was a poor decision for Apple to upgrade the camera on the 9.7 to the point it sticks out in the first place. Fewer people use the back camera on the iPad and the extra cash should have gone to more RAM and/or a second generation fingerprint sensor. That and I feel that they shouldn't encourage self centered and annoying people from using their iPad to take pictures at events that block the views of others trying to enjoy them.

    I hate to say it but it was a "scuff" just waiting to happen. No much you can do at this point.

    I never liked the idea of the camera protruding because I kind of figured it would get some pressure on it and might get scuffed. I was trying to be careful with it to prevent this for as long as possible but nothing can be done with it for now. If I ever use the iPad as a camera it is at family events or something of that nature and only if the iPad is out in the first place. The iPhone has the same camera and just more usable for that purpose. Oh well...
