Is the wobbly power button a warranty case?

    Hi,

    I‘ve received my iPad Pro 11“ with a very wobbly power button that makes crackling noises. I had accepted it so far, but now the iPad has also a tiny scratch on the display after just 2 weeks and I was wondering if I should try my luck to return it for the power button, and get away with a new iPad...

    Has anybody returned theirs for the power button? Or is it just the way they all are being made this year?

    Wobbly is a funny way to word it. :)

    Also, kinda dishonest to return it while trying to fly the scratched screen under the radar. Unless the screen was scratched already, out of the box

    My iPad also has a wobbly power button. I brought it to the Apple store, and they qualified it as a hardware defect. They ordered a replacement iPad, but the new iPad also has a wobbly power button. Not sure what to do, but it’s pretty annoying. Every time you touch it, you hear it sliding around in its socket.
