Apple stands by its bent iPads

Apple was said to be ready to issue an official statement to media outlets "later today", but that was Friday December 20th and nothing has been received by outlets at this point. The iPad mini has been languishing in abandonment land for a while but the word from Apple's supply chain is that an updated iPad mini will appear along with a refreshed iPad with a larger 10-inch display.

As per anonymous sources speaking to the China Times, the two new slates are meant to boost iPad sales - the iPad Mini is coming in the first half of next year, with the 10-inch iPad (set to replace the 9.7-inch model Apple launched in 2018) arriving in the second half of 2019.

As for an explanation for the iPad revival next year, Apple is also rumoured to be revamping iPad home screen with the next version of iOS next year. I've been using an iPad Pro in that way for a while and it works well but a smaller device would be ideal for me. The company claims that there haven't been any unusual returns for their new iPad Pros. "The bend is the result of a cooling process involving the iPad Pro's metal and plastic components during manufacturing, according to Apple". Then last week, TheVerge reported of Apple confirming about some iPad Pros shipped slightly bent, but that not being a design flaw.

Christmas messages from your council leaders
The news this year, both locally and nationally, has been dramatic to say the least - and, of course, at times tragic. Christmas can be a lonely time for those living alone, and a short call or visit can make all the difference.

Dan Riccio, the senior executive, responded to the issue in an email to a MacRumors reader that the devices "meets or exceeds" all of Apple's quality and precision standards. It's still unclear if Apple plans to fix bent iPads once you've passed the return window. "Apple knows best", that's the way the Cupertino based company thinks basically and every passing day they are proved wrong.

Not happy with the response from Apple saying that the matter is not a manufacturing issue, a customer, raised his concerns via email straight to Apple's CEO, Tim Cook.

Apple's VP of hardware engineering says the tablet, which costs up to $1,899, "meets or exceeds" all of Apple's quality and precision standards. Less than half a millimeter, and Riccio says that this variation will not change during normal use of the product, before or after production.
