Newly launched iPad Pro can seemingly bend and break very easily

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. If you plan to buy an iPhone XR, Pixel 3 or Galaxy S9 phones, you're going to get a second one for free. However, we don't think that we've seen such a test getting carried out on a tablet before. "Since phones are such a hot commodity - and Apple is pretty strict on the discounts they allow - the deals on these items tend to be very specific and they come with a lot of sticklers", Sarah Hollenbeck, Shopping and Retail Expert at BlackFriday.com, told Fox News. 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. Now before you jump into the comments section blaming him for going too harsh on the device or saying that no one is going to bend it, take a look at Apple forums where people are noting that the tablet is bending just after a couple of days of use.

iFixit does careful teardowns to figure out how repairable the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil 2 are. When the iPhone XR started shipping a week later, you still had to choose a carrier.

As JerryRigEverything owner Zack Nelson explains, the iPad bends along the middle because there are holes in the aluminum frame on either side. Now, add to that the £89 for the Apple Pencil and the £199 for the Smart Keyboard Folio and you've got a grand total of £2,157.

iPad Pro bend test confirms what we already know: Tablets are fragile

After all, you can't have light and thin devices with huge surface areas and not expect them to bend.

Zack Nelson, the YouTuber behind popular channel JerryRigEverything, has made a decision to apply the idea to Apple's brand new iPad Pro.
