I have had the problem of the new iPad Pro 12.9 bending right in the middle. Ive seen many threads with some having issues and some not. I have been trying to figure out what happened to mine, it really received no force it has been treated as you should treat such an expensive device. I think possibly there is a bad batch or, some slipped through quality checks. Could it be related to not having a case on? does the case or folio offer more rigid support? Just thinking maybe all those experiencing bending did not have a case on, all those that haven't had a case?
