The extent to which you can bend an Apple gadget before it breaks dates back to 2014, when the company released the iPhone 6 Plus.

Since then, there's been an obsession with testing how durable these expensive pieces of consumer technology are when subjected to "stress tests".

The full video includes the taking apart of a second generation Apple Pencil as well as the inscribing of a Spider-Man face in the anodization on the back of the iPad Pro, a sign that the anodization is perhaps not as thick as it could be. A tablet which, with full spec and a few necessary add-ons, can cost over £2,000. 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.

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.

The fourth reason to get an iPad Pro to replace your computer is how easy it is to multitask, which is mostly handled by the new gestures supported in iOS 12 and thanks to losing the physical Home button. While some may feel that it should have taken more force to manage, and it's true the iPad does fold somewhat easily, this is nothing new.

Regardless, the headline-grabbing feature of the video is the bending of that poor iPad Pro.

Internally, the iPad Pro does not seem to have any reinforcements for ensuring proper structural integrity.
