i noticed these white lines around the edge of my iPad Pro 12.9 inch a few weeks ago, but they have gotten worse. Apple have agreed to replace it, just wondering - anyone else ever see this on their iPad?

Funny how practically any time there's a problem here posters will jump to conclusions that you're doing something ridiculous to explain anything that may in fact simply be Apple's fault.
give it a rest. no one is jumping to conclusions. it's not ridiculous to stack books on an iPad. I regularly have a book or two on top of my iPad when going from meeting to meeting.

My point is, it's always blame the user first, assume something unusual, rather than acknowledge the more obvious answer- it's an issue with the product.

Watch a few videos on 12.9 iPad Pro taken apart. My speculation is the type of adhesive used to fuse the lightbulb LED light emitting bulb is not sufficient

Your point was to jump to judgment. Where in my post did I "blame the user first"? Where did I "assume something unusual"?

The OP was terse in explaining the situation. The questions were not accusatory but investigatory. Trying to understand the situation better. If the OP had said, "I took it home from the store, opened the box, and it had this ring of light" no one would be asking any of these questions. That's because that hypothetical situation is clear.

Do they explain to you the possible cause of this issue? I'm worried because they will just replace my ipad if there is no water or pressure issue. Is there any chance that they will alter the diagnosis? I mean, what if they put some issues on my ipad and they told me that my ipad pro is voided in the warranty so, they will not replace a new one? Or that is impossible thing to do? I am 100% sure that my ipad pro is free from water and pressure damage
