Apple’s new iPad Pro folds like paper in new bend test video

Apple’s new iPad Pro folds like paper in new bend test video

Apple released a video today, giving five reasons why the iPad Pro should be your next computer. YouTuber 'JerryRigEverything' also managed to bend the new iPad Pro with a limited amount of force, though given that his YouTube channel literally exists to break tech products in different, I always approach his tests with a skeptical eye. There are ways to protect the iPad Pro like adding a protective cover and tempered glass, but it may not help a lot. No, this sadly is not some new technology Apple invented, and we're not looking at a foldable iPad. As you'll see in the video below, the metal can be scratched easily, but you won't damage it.

This is a great video to check out if you're mulling a new tablet purchase.

Apple would probably rather skip the references to Bendgate. Furthermore, you don't put iPads in jeans pockets as you do with phones, so that type of accidental bending is not likely to occur. JerryRigEverything says the bend test is important because you never know if your iPad Pro in your backpack may be vulnerable to getting bent, or if an iPad Pro gets sat on while on your couch. The Apple Pencil, by the way, is even less durable than the tablet. After scratching the metal sides, Zack finds that the area where the Apple Pencil latches on to the tablet is made of plastic to allow wireless charging for the Pencil. Then again, these devices aren't supposed to be indestructible, so pay attention to how you treat them.

Apple recently launched the new iPad Pro with a better design and improved specs which makes the device faster and it looks more durable than it's predecessors.
