    Hi all,

    Any new iPad Pro owners have a very loose lock button? Mine is functional but definitely doesn't feel right.

    I have an otherwise perfect iPad so just wanted to see if this was common.

    Depends on the day, but usually I live all over.
    It's common on all the new iPods, iPads, iPhones, they all wiggle a little. It's nothing to be concerned about.

    Thanks for the replies. I own lots of Apple products and have never had one this loose but it seems to be a common thing. I checked my 6s Plus and Air 2 to compare and they aren't loose. I wanted to check if any other owners found it similarly loose by comparison. It's definitely irritating me even though I barely even press the lock button, it has a slight rattle to it in a quiet room.

    My Pro has a very slightly loose power button, but it's such a non-issue. Barely wiggles. Yes, it rattles a little bit if I rest my finger on it and wiggle it. But whatever. It's in a case anyway, and it doesn't make any sound unless I purposely wiggle it with the case off.

    Thanks for the reply. Would definitely be a non-issue in a case! That makes me feel better. The volume buttons on mine are really solid so I thought the power button might have been designed to be the same. Doesn't seem to be the case from your observations.

    I've encountered the same problem, I first started off with the gold one. I took the one I had back and got another one. Same problem. So I got a different color and (space grey) it's solid now. Gonna get a white one in a couple days to see if it has the problems to.
    What color do you have?

    Is it the same with 10.5 - loose on/off button?
