New iPad Pro Bends Easily [Video]

New iPad Pro Bends Easily [Video]

A durability test of the 2018 iPad Pro reveals that the redesigned tablet can be bent with surprisingly little force. The test was posted by YouTuber JerryRigEverything.

Apple says their New iPad Pro is a magical piece of glass that does everything you need, any way you hold it. (As long as you are gentle of course.) Today we are going to find out how durable Apples new piece of glass really is. How good is the drawing on the iPad? We'll be testing that out with Art Class With Jerry. (Which side did Apple want us to draw on again? I forget...) And finally we will finish off with the New iPad Pro Bend test, this will tell us realistically how much force the iPad Pro can withstand while it is in your backpack or book bag, or while being accidentally sat on.

The video also notes that the sapphire crystal camera lens cover does not perform at expected levels, scratching at the same level 6 as glass.

Take a look at the bend test below and let us know what you think in the comments!

Here's an idea. Don't try to fold it to fit it in your pocket. Problem solved. Cus if you're doing anything else that's causing it to bend, you're just a careless clumsy moron that should probably just not own one.

Look here! I’m an Apple guy, I have no windows or androids devices. But if this new iPad Pro is the quality dished out for 1000 dollars, no thanks, I’ll keep my old iPad Pro. Don’t they test this kind of thing for strength?? Where’s the sapphire for the camera???

Apple’s 2018 quality: tough as cardboard.

Told you guy that making it “slimmer”, which apple loves to do was a big phucking mistake. I’m glad #bendgate is back. Inch of idiots at apple.

EverythingApplePro also did this test with the same results, even while they might be biased for Apple’s products. Apple should’ve gone the way they did with the iPhone XR - super solid frame and glass panels, thicker than usual - damn tough to break.
