Bent iPad Air

I've read several reports of iPad minis with bent bodies. Now I'm facing the same problem for the first time with my own iPad, though it's an iPad Air.

 

I can assure you that I've done nothing wrong with the iPad in these less than 2 months of use. So I'm not completely sure what the cause is.

 

I just discovered how bent the body is today, though I suspect it was a progressive problem due to the thin and light form factor and the hot weather (sometimes the iPad got kind of hot during normal use).

 

Have you seen anything like this on an iPad Air? It looks really bad.



Nope, I haven't seen that. I doubt that the case will bend without significant force. Although you may have treated it gently that doesn't mean that someone else didn't have a mishap with it.



I seriously doubt that's the case. I'm concerned about the heat and form factor issues that I described before. After all, cases like these have been reported before though related to the iPad mini (similar design).



Also, consider how much force you need to crook an iPad like that. It seems impossible to me without the help of some "external force", like hot weather and a defective design.

 

Because of its current form, clearly the battery, case and screen have been compromised. That doesn't happen with a simple smash.

It could happen, however, by something as simple as sitting on it.

 

Since you have posted no photos of your iPad its hard to say much.

 

The low amounts of heat generated by the iPad are not going to bend or soften aluminum.



Hi.

 

First of all, here are some pictures:

I can assure you that I didn't sit on my iPad.

 

Also, maybe the heat produced by the own iPad is not enought, but the weather can affect it. As a matter of fact a friend of mine had his MacBook's battery "bloated" in similar circunstances.



No one here can really help you in the long run... you just need to take it in to Apple and let them look at it.  Good luck.

The melting point of aluminum is 1221 degrees F.  The melting point of glass can vary a bit depending what's in it but it looks as if it needs at least 1000 degrees. There is no way the iPad puts out enough heat to do that. Old lithium ion batteries can, in some circumstances, react in such a way that they swell, causing issues in device such as an iPad or iPhone where space is tight.

 

I have seen a couple of iPad Airs with cracked screens as a result of a security holder in which they were placed being tightend too much so that it pulled diagonally from one corner to another across the back. It was definitely the torque that did the damage.



Make an appointment at an Apple Store to have your device examined by a technician. Or contact Apple Support.



U are kidding right! That didnt happen on its own!



Not saying that it happened on its own. But I've been carrying my original iPad, iPad 2 and iPad 3 in bags for years and that never happened.

 

On a side note, if I did smash the iPad or sat on it, the screen would be cracked. Clearly that's not the case neither.

 

There's no Apple Store in my country, so I'll go to the same reseller where I bought my iPad. However I wanted to know if there were other stories like mine so I can make a well-founded claim.



The screen would not have to be cracked. A few weeks back, someone washed their Retina Mini in the washing machine and it got bent but the screen did not crack.



The screen definitely wouldn't have to be cracked. I would recommend calling Apple at 1-800-MYAPPLE and if you are persistant they'll ship you a new one just explain your concern in thinking that it's a maufacturing issue.



Actually, I have an identical problem. After less than a month of use, I noticed that my ipad air was bent. I noticed during the day while I was using it to play XCOM Enemy Unknown that it was too hot to touch with my bare hands. Shortly after that I put it in a bag with some other things for a couple of hours. I didn't step or sit on it, I didn't apply any great pressure to the bag at all, the only pressure was a mild pressure of some clothes pressed up against it inside the bag. But I did take it with me outside for a few minutes where it was around 5 degrees Celsius.

 

When I took it out later and tried to stand it up using my cover, it didn't stick like it had before. I was shocked to find that the side without the volume buttons was significantly bent towards the middle just like OP's pictures, except that the curve is in the direction of the glass.

 

I tried getting it to heat up again and pressed the ipad against a table to straighten it out somewhat, but although the corners could be pressed down temporarily, it immediately returned to its new bent form.

 

Thank you for posting. Now that I know that I'm not alone, I'm tempted to have it looked at. Only problem is there are no apple stores anywhere in my part of Japan. I bought it at a mobile phone service provider for the cellular model and it took 6 weeks to arrive, so I'm worried having it looked at will take over a month (and I use my iPad every day for work), only to be told that they won't take responsibility and fix/replace it.

 

I've had no performance problems despite the bend, but it really is frustrating to see that slight bend every single time I use it. And to be stuck with it for nearly 2 years just adds insult to injury.



same here. mine is un noticable unless i will lay it flat facing glass down and inserted and piece of paper between the gap. went to the apple store last month and still waiting for their feedback.
