Customers buying the newly launched M1 iMac are complaining about their stand being slightly crooked.
This was first discovered by Apple products YouTuber iPhonedo who noticed a slight slant when his new iMac was shipped to him. He measured the left and right edges of the iMac to discover that they were not symmetrical. One side showed a distance of 7.6 centimetres between the edge of the monitor and the desk, whereas the other side showed 8 centimetres — that’s a considerable difference.
He did highlight that one might not notice this issue in the very beginning. However, it does become quite noticeable when you keep other things next to it or try to compare its dimensions with other objects around it.
According to a report by MacRumors, there have been many M1 iMac buyers who have been complaining about this on the Apple Support forums as well as the popular Reddit. It is crucial to note that we don’t really know if this problem is only restricted to a few units of the iMac or is it a major manufacturing issue.
Apple is known to make its device look cool as hell with its leading industrial design and choice of colours — whether it’s the iPhones or the iMacs or even the TV remote of Apple TV streaming boxes. However, this blunder is surely an embarrassing one. But this is not the only one Apple has had in the history of making devices.
How can we forget the ‘Bendgate’ for the infamous iPhone 6 Plus where the users complained the device would bend a lot easier, especially when in the back pocket, along with a series of hardware issues that eclipsed the discontinued smartphone.
Moreover, even the iPad Pro suffered from structural integrity issues where it was prone to bending with the placement of the magnetic wireless charger port for the Apple Pencil.
