IPad Pro 11 gets put through scratch, burn and bend testing

It is not going to be an easy video to watch if you don't like destroying tech.

To finish things off, Nelson goes for his signature bend test, holding Apple iPad Pro (2018) horizontally and applying force in the middle with his thumbs.

The iPad Pro testing starts with a screen scratch test that shows marks turn up beginning with a level six hardness pick, standard for glass scratching according to the video. Microsoft's engineering of the built-in kickstand adds an additional layer of rigidity that helps keep the Surface Pro 6's frame from completely buckling under pressure as Apple's iPad Pro did. It is concerning to see how fragile the tablet is. While this will remind people of the iPhone 6's "Bendgate" issues, which Apple fixed, the comparison isn't warranted. 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.

In his video, Zach explains, the iPad Pro is "like tinfoil wrapped around mashed potatoes", and that "the iPad Pro just doesn't have any of that structural integrity stuff". The new Apple Pencil comes apart pretty easily too, with its weakest point being right at the center. On the left side, meanwhile, there's a microphone hole. Beware placing the Apple Pencil in a pocket as it might not survive.

T3 will be keeping a close eye on the discounts when they launch and will keep you posted with the best deals and promotions available.

The YouTube channel put the latest iPad Pro through various tests and the tablet did not fare well, most destructive of which was the bend test.
