"Bentgate" Didn't Stop 2018 iPad Pro From Selling Well

According to Thinknum, look through the data of Best Buy, the 2018 iPad Pro models sales have not been affected even though Apple confirmed it bent out of the box, which got so many attention. In fact, the sales chart shows that purchases of the new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro have not shown a notable downtrend since the initial launch, but rather have been “stable”.

The first one who reports the iPad Pro bending problem was JerryRigEverything, which showed that the new iPad Pro was easier to break than ever. Later, some media reported that the tablet had ship slight bent issue. Apple hardware engineering executives responded that the new iPad Pro "meets or exceeds" all of Apple's high-quality standards for design and precision manufacturing.
Its unibody design meets or exceeds all of Apple's high quality standards of design and precision manufacturing. We've carefully engineered it and every part of the manufacturing process is precisely measured and controlled.
Meanwhile, Apple's former senior Marketing Director argued on Twitter that "Apple tolerances shouldn't allow for a clear noticeable bend. Much as monitors with noticeable dead pixels aren't acceptable either", and Apple is in the wrong.
