    I noticed that when I press a bit harder with the Apple Pencil and move it rapidly left and right, I can see a slight distortion on the screen (movement of the liquid of the LCD). It is barely visible and only perceivable when pressing the screen a bit harder with a pencil on a gray background (I am including the background if anyone wants to test theirs).

    It's really hard to see and I don't mind it at all (I notice it only if I really try) - but I was wondering what are your experiences? I don't press the pencil hard often, but I don't want to be scared to use it more firmly.

    Again, only (barely) noticeable with a gray background, with firm presses and wiggle movements of the Pencil. Other colors/finger presses do not show it.

    Yes, I've been able to see it sometimes. I figure that Apple must have designed the screen for this usage so I don't worry about it. If it causes problems: that's what Apple Care is for ;-)

    Basically I'm just going to use it and not worry about it.

    I've seen that as well. Usually in the center where the screen flexes the most. Sadly most drawing apps don't have adjustable pressure curves. Procreate does and it lets me draw with less pressure. Maybe it'll be added at the iOS level next update.

    I just read on a similar post way back (had to search the forums) and it turns out most (if not all) iPad Pros and Air 2s have this issue in some form or the other - some more pronounced, others less. I feel fortunate that I notice this only on strong presses on a gray background, and it's barely visible. I choose to ignore this from now on :D

    Thanks.
