I was considering one, but the flex issue IMO isn't good for something in this price range. So will probably wait for the next gen which will no doubt fix it.


There is no flex issue. Am speaking for 99.99% of users.

It is bizarre that it has that issue.  Hopefully they will also improve iOS for the pro models, so it is truly a desktop replacement device, but it is very difficult to do. They really should have done something similar to Microsoft did with windows, but perhaps in reverse, so that future mac OS computers are derived from ios.  That way they could avoid all the old  legacy code bloat.



Not sure what you mean by flex. The 2018 iPad Pro doesn’t ‘flex’ in the sense of bending. Apple have acknowledged that a small percentage of devices may have a variation from perfectly linear along one side but this is within their tolerances and is not regarded as a fault. The variation is a fraction of a millimetre and the device is perfectly rigid. The variation may arise from the thermal bonding of aluminium and plastic chassis components during manufacture.

i was also worried about this, i dont want to speed all this money on a bend iPad, no matter how small it is. And if its a small percentage then replace them. People are paying top $$$ for this!

Yeah I have to admit, if mine was one with the variation, I wouldn’t be very happy.
