New iPad Pro Gets Design Upgrade to Prevent 'Bendgate' [Video]

Apple's new M4 iPad Pro features a design upgrade intended to prevent another 'Bendgate'.

At 5.1mm thin, the 2024 iPad Pro is the company's thinnest device ever, and with a screen size of up to 13-inches, some customers are concerned that the chassis could easily bend.

In a recent video interview with Arun Maini, John Ternus and Greg Joswiak reveal that a new cowling has been added to strengthen the device.

One of the interesting things is the main logic board runs right down the center in between the two batteries on the iPad Pro.

And that's really helpful from a thermal dissipation standpoint because we can spread heat evenly.

But we also have a cowling over the main logic board, a metal cover that also helps on both thermal spreading, but it also effectively creates a central rib that runs through the whole thing that tremendously improves the stiffness of the product.


The 2024 11-inch and 13-inch iPad Pro models are available to pre-order ahead of release tomorrow:
11-inch M4 iPad Pro: $949.99 ($49.01 off)
13-inch M4 iPad Pro: $1299
