New Apple iPad Pro tablets appear to be vunerable to bending

New Apple iPad Pro tablets appear to be vunerable to bending

So, we've done the legwork for you and picked out the very best add-ons for Apple's new iPad Pro. You won't see drastic results in day-to-day use but might consider slapping a case to protect the tablet while giving it a little extra reinforcement. The video shows off how easy and effortless it is to bend the iPad Pro in half.

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. For starters, phones are a lot more compact than tablets, which means they should be a lot more durable.

As The Verge rightly points out, other iPad models can also bend a lot easier than iPhones, so it's not like this is a major discovery. However, the part where the tablet did not recover from was the bend test.

If you want to learn anything new about the iPad Pro, you can check out our previous coverage of the tablet below. But, it's all for educational purposes, so the new iPad Pro, and the Apple pencil, are subjected to scratch test, fire test, and the usual bend test. The thin glass screen did not help with increasing the durability either, and the batteries were not properly compartmentalized to give the slate extra rigidity. The Apple Pencil, by the way, is even less durable than the tablet. Considering iPad Pro is the most premium iPad offering from Apple boasting a hefty price tag, ample sturdiness tests must be performed and quality materials must be used to make sure that everything goes as per the expectation.
