The support note mentions that the new iPad Pro's specification for flatness during inspection is tighter than previous generations, only allowing for 400 microns of deviation - or less than a stack of four sheets of paper - across the length of any side.

The strips are added using a process called "co-molding" where "plastic is injected into precisely milled channels in the aluminum enclosure where it bonds to micro-pores in the aluminum surface".

In the page titled "iPad Pro unibody enclosure design", Apple explains that it has used a process called co-molding for its iPad Pro cellular models, which is the variant that has seen the most reports of bending. The new straight edges and the presence of the antenna splits may make subtle deviations in flatness more visible only from certain viewing angles that are imperceptible during normal use.

A new product launch wouldn't be complete without some level of controversy, and for the 2018 iPad Pro models the kerfuffle has centered around bending. After the plastic cools, the tablets are then machined to create a seamless integration between the aluminum and plastic. If you're shopping for a 2017 iPad Pro you can pick from silver, space grey, gold and rose gold, which might be one reason why you would prefer the older model over the newer one. And, while Apple says there's a factory allowed variance of 400 microns, it's possible that some devices are slipping through the testing process. The company wants customers to know that this amount of deviation is perfectly normal and does not compromise the strength or durability of the tablet, and the company encourages customers that feel their tablet has bent more than is acceptable to either return the tablet or send it in under warranty.

A few weeks back, a growing number of iPad Pro users began noticing a subtle bend in the chassis of their iPad Pros. But it is imperceptible during normal use - and I use this iPad every day.

Disappointed that you didn't get the iPad you wanted over the holidays? The issue grew in the weeks since the device began shipping in November, with users sharing photos online of their new iPad Pro appearing bent right out of the box.

The problem as pointed out by many is that as the iPad Pro is really thin at 5.9mm, a 400 micron (0.4mm) deviation is indeed very noticeable.

The 2018 iPad Pros do have slightly larger rear camera lenses, and more obvious antenna lines, but they're only available in silver and space grey.
