That's not a picture of an iPad.

So you may want to provide more info on what it is a picture of since there are literally hundreds of speakers you could connect an iPad to.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

I just looked mine over with a magnifying glass and there is nothing I can see that remotely looks like that it would be worth having the Apple Store examine it and without knowing what it is I definitely would not pull on it.

sorted... pulled on it with tweezers..

it was a piece of graphite from a propelling pencil that has somehow managed to get lodged in one of the speaker holes..

good deal - amazing how close up pics can make things look different
