How are your 2018 iPad Pros holding up?
I was supposed to buy a 12.9 inch 2018 iPad Pro. I’ve always wanted one and I felt like this year is finally the year I buy one.
Until this… [https://www.macrumors.com/2018/12/19/apple-2018-ipad-pros-ship-bent/](https://www.macrumors.com/2018/12/19/apple-2018-ipad-pros-ship-bent/)
I don’t want to overreact on the news. So, if you have a new 2018 iPad Pro, how is it holding up? Did it really come out bent out of the box? Has it really bent ever so slightly since you got it?
That news really killed it for me.
I finally gave in and bought one! I bought a WiFi only 12.9 inch Space Gray 2018 iPad Pro plus the Smart Folio and Apple Pencil 2.
I bought it in a physical apple store. I literally told them in the store: “If I open this box now and I see that there’s any bend on it, are you going to give me a new one?” The girl said: “Yes sir, if you see a defect upon opening, it’s a factory defect so we’ll give you a new one immediately.”
I opened it and checked every corner for any bends, but it was perfect, to my relief!
It’s heavier than I expected and the screen looks bigger because of the bezels.
I guess you can’t help but treat the thing like a baby because it is so unwieldy and heavy. You’re constantly afraid that you’ll drop it somehow.
I’m enjoying the device though!
