    My wife picked up my 10.5" iPad Pro today and I just got a chance to open it. Beautiful, however it has a definite curve more noticeable across the top and bottom, its only very slight, but if you put a straight rule across the top or bottom you can see daylight in the middle - anyone else notice this?

    it is working perfectly, and is only slight, but then again it costs a lot of money and come resale time it might be a pain... Just checked against my 9.7" iPad Pro which is straight.

    If it’s something you have to stick a ruler on top of and look for, I don’t think it’s a big deal. If you can hold it straight out in front of you and tell without much effort, then I’d be worried. thats just my unimportant .02

    If you bought it from an Apple Store, I'd suggest taking it back and verifying the issue. Apple has very good customer service, if they have stock I'm sure they'll swap it if there's a real issue.

    Trade it in but be warned, worst things can be wrong.

    Few people except people like us on this forum spend a lot of time looking down the edge of their iPads to confirm if they are straight. If it bothers you, get it replaced.

    Except, when it comes time to sell it and the person buying it is very sensitive to such things and it causes a potential reduction in value or lost sale. It is easy to brush seemingly meaningless issues aside, until they matter.

    Same. Mine has an ever so slight curve as well. I noticed it right away, but thought my eyes were playing ticks on me. I placed it glass side down on a table just now to confirm, and there is a curve to my 10.5 as well.

    No curve here. I’d return if serious though. Can you post a picture?

    Ha! Possible. I can try it on another table. I'm not overly concerned, but it's there. Thanks to the OP for putting it in my head.

    I doubt a P2P buyer is going to bring a ruler when s/he purchases a used iPad. However, as I alluded to earlier, if it’s significant (in appearance or to his perspective), take it back. If not, keep it moving. Also, your statement assumes it’d be sold to another person. It’d sell just the same on a gazelle or broker type site. I see and understand your position though.

    In my case, it's hard to get a picture. If you place it glass side down there a slight curve to it looking at it lengthwise. When placed face side down, if you press down on the centre, you can see the curve "straighten" while applying minor pressure. It's a slight curve, but it is there. Otherwise, in my case, it is working fine.

    I was only coming from the perspective I did after watching the recent Nintendo Switch situation where there is a chance of having a small but somewhat noticeable bend in the system.

    That's true for resale. Especially if you're selling something online and you don't for see it as a problem with a minor defect, and the person receiving it has an issue with it, then it just creates a whole array of problems.

    Well I took it back to apple and they replaced it without even looking at it. The new one is better :)

    Ive had many iPads over the years, and I started noticing slight curves on my Air 2. My pro 9.7, 12.9, and the 10.5 I'm typing on now all have slight curves. They seem to all have this. To check, simply place glass down on a table, when the iPad is on, you will see some space/light from the screen in the middle of the iPad. You can check this at any Apple Store/ Best Buy etc too simply by doing putting the iPad down on the display table. It has never been an issue performance wise though.

    I've decided to take mine back as well. I found a reserve for pick up today. Will return, and try a new one as well.

    If the first was bent, I'm assuming "better" means not bent.

    I got a feeling that it was simply less bent.

    If I was being completely OCD then there is the slightest of bend (dip in the middle) at the top but the sides look fine and overall this one looks straight (this is a cellular model if it makes any difference?). My previous one looked hand slight bends along all sides, although very slight it was visible enough to me, and once you've seen those bends/curves its hard to look past them!

    Mine doesn't have any curve. If it bothers you, do a return and swap.
