Whether you get it as a gift or gifted it to yourself, there’s a little bit of extra prep work to do if you’ve just gotten your hands on a new 2018 iPad Pro. After a series of reports and rumours, Apple has acknowledged that a certain percentage of the new iPad Pros are shipping with a small structural bend in the chassis. Nobody wants to spend big bucks on a fancy new tablet and have it arrive bent, so make sure to check it right when you buy it and, if you see a curve, send it back within Apple’s 14-day return period.
