Apple iPad Pro (2018) undergoes scratch, burn and bend test

Apple iPad Pro (2018) undergoes scratch, burn and bend test

Most folks won't have to worry about seeing the iPad bend like this, unless they're aiming to break it on goal, but perhaps its thinness is a contributing factor to potentially damaging models in the future.

Zack Nelson, the YouTuber known for conducting endurance tests on electronic gadgets on his channel JerryRigEverything, recently put the 11-inch model of Apple iPad Pro (2018) through its paces. As you will see, the anodization is easy to scratch off, and the camera lenses are also easily destroyed.

Besides the video, Apple-centric site MacRumors also reported that there had been a few complaints about the iPad Pro's bending issue on its forums. Earlier, Filip Koroy of popular YouTube channel EverythingApplePro showed how fragile the new iPad Pros are when dropped from waist height. Thanks to the App Store, the tablet is everything from a cinema where you can stream movies, to a book, an editing suite to work on your films, a music studio to add the right amount of gloss to your music, and more.

Apple iPad Pro (2018) undergoes scratch, burn and bend test: Watch Video

Apple would probably rather skip the references to Bendgate. Well, Apple's latest iPad Pro might have just taken the pedestal from the 2014 device, if the new video is anything to go by. You won't want anyone to sit on it, or have it bend while you're lugging it around in a backpack or suitcase.

The most interesting, and hurtful, part though is the actual bend test. On the left side, meanwhile, there's a microphone hole. The first reason is the power, which Apple repeats that the new iPad Pro is more powerful than most computers. The Apple Pencil, by the way, is even less durable than the tablet.
