Apple's New iPad Pro Sparks Another Bendgate After Folding Under Minimal Pressure

As YouTube channel JerryRigEverything ably demonstrates.

Given the new iPad Pro's dimensions, I'm not surprised it bends somewhat easily, though I'd argue that unless you're doing something silly with the tablet, you probably won't end up with a bent device.

The video starts off with Zack demonstrating how its easy to snap the Apple Pencil into two like a KitKat wafer by bending it at its dead center point.

Last month, Apple announced a bunch of new products at its special event in NY.

"A tablet the size of a piece of paper folds like a piece of paper", Nelson says. But when he proceeded to apply his bend test, the iPad Pro failed terribly as it was totaled after applying a little bit of pressure. Like tinfoil wrapped around mashed potatoes'.

Though various reports of bending iPad Pro tablets have emerged, as it stands it seems that the issue isn't widespread.

Just days after the formal debut of the iPad Pro (2018) in India, the latest iPad model has now been put through a durability test under which its display panel and build quality have been tested.

THE NEW IPAD PRO may be the same dimensions as A4 paper, but you absolutely shouldn't try and turn it into the world's most expensive paper aeroplane. The first reason is the power, which Apple repeats that the new iPad Pro is more powerful than most computers. It also comes in a 12.9-inch version which will likely react exactly the same way if subjected to the same amount of force.

The takeaway here is that you should probably be mindful of the way you treat a tablet that can run you almost a grand or more, depending on storage and display size.

That may be true, but it's still alarming to see just how fragile the newly released iPad Pro actually is. At the very least, put a case on it.
