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

It's too early to say whether the new iPad Pros are any easier to snap or bend than their predecessors - a device this shape is always going to be susceptible to deliberate attempts to bend it, and most iPad Pro owners are reporting no problems with bending.

Apple unveiled its newest iPad Pro models a few weeks ago, which come in 11-inch and 12.9-inch variations. There are ways to protect the iPad Pro like adding a protective cover and tempered glass, but it may not help a lot.

The YouTuber Zack Nelson is famous for his signature bend tests which he performs on smartphones and tablets that he gets his hands on. I do agree that the no one is going to sit with iPad in the back pocket but there's a chance that they might sit on the tablet by accident. In the video (embedded below), Nelson starts off by testing the iPad Pro's display for scratch resistance using multiple picks conforming to Mohs hardness scale. So the bottom line is this - if you buy a new iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil to go with it, make sure you're careful with and around them. Apple's critical darling appears to bend pretty easily under the right amount of pressure, which you might expect but is no less visceral to watch. That's all great, but is Apple's newest tablet as strong on the outside, as it is on the inside?

Finally, they touted the bonus functionality that comes with using the Apple Pencil, including creating artwork and signing documents. You will of course not do this to your iPad Pro, but after seeing this video you'll probably double check for risks of sitting on it.

If you are noticing a bend in your iPad Pro, take it into an Apple Store and get some expert advice on whether you can get it replaced as a defective unit.
