FYI: Apple charges more for repairs if new iPad Pro is bent
As reported here (Service Eligibility Guidelines | [iPhone](https://www.theverge.com/2017/9/4/16251200/apple-leaked-iphone-warranty-guide-repair-replace) | [iPad](https://i.imgur.com/ESzCWwf.png)) and as other users have reported over several years, if Apple finds it bent, your iPad Pro ~~is~~ may no longer be eligible for Warranty Service.
* Meaning they will charge you an Out-Of-Warranty Service fee, which means your Apple Care won’t save you
* Although, perhaps, you may be able to use one of your two “accidental damage” incidents
* One user reported a $60 repair becoming a $600 repair when an Apple Genius discovered their 12.9″ iPad Pro was bent, unbeknown to the owner prior to bringing it in for an unrelated repair. They said the genius used a caliper-ruler to measure bend, and said it was ineligible for the original warranty repair price. (I can’t confirm this story since I wasn’t there; take it with grains for salt, but it seems about right given similar responses regarding bent edges on devices)
This is all to warn you to check your iPad Pro for bends, and to consider that just trusting Apple that there are no consequences to this bend may be false once you bring it in for an unrelated repair.
