“If you scratch, burn and bend the tablet, you can ruin it. You are warned.
YouTube host JerryRigEverything Zack Nilsson, who tests gadgets for strength, conducted a test of the new iPad Pro. The video blogger said that the Apple tablet can be easily bent and finally broken without much effort.
JerryRigEverything made a video on the background of emerging claims that the iPad Pro bends, if it is to carry in a backpack. The owners of the tablet proved it with photos.
Before bending the iPad Pro, Nilsson disassembled the updated Apple Pencil. He tested the strength of the screen, side panels, camera and other parts of the tablet. Nilsson “cut out” on his back panel the image of Spiderman, noting that Apple has repeatedly said that the new iPad is designed to draw and create other content. Then he tested the device for fire resistance, bringing a lighter to it. The iPad Pro came to a final test in working condition, but already obviously damaged.
Specialized publications, experts and users of social networks drew attention to shots with the bending iPad Pro. The latter saw a discrepancy in that the device, the cost of which reaches 147 thousand rubles (in the maximum configuration and according to the official Apple website), breaks down relatively easily.
Commentators recalled complaints about the bending of the iPhone 6, but one of the most well-known techno-bloggers, Markus Brownlee, said that he did not see big problems with the new Apple tablet.
Ha for the record I don’t think it’s that much of a problem. This device will mostly live in backpacks and on tables, not accidentally bending in pockets.

“IPad Pro is a premium gadget that requires special attention. Do not lose your mind. I bought an 11-inch model last week and still carry it daily in my backpack. And everything is beautiful, ” said Chris Velch, The Verge editor. In his opinion, potential buyers of the device have no cause for concern.
According to the edition, the feature affects not only the iPad, but also the tablets of other companies, since they are all rather thin and have a screen that occupies almost the entire area of the front panel. For example, The Verge noted that it expects similar results if the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is bent. “Of course, the tablet will break if you are trying to do just that,” the journalist emphasized. In addition, previous-generation iPads with similar designs were also really bend.
AppleInsider jokingly wrote that thanks to blogger JerryRigEverything “now it’s official” – if you scratch, cut, burn, bend and beat iPad Pro, you can spoil it. “You have been warned,” noted journalist William Gallagher.
According to AppleInsider, Zack Nilsson made the news something that has long been known. “The blogger discovers that the metal parts are made of metal, and the plastic parts for the Wi-Fi pass and the cellular signal are made of plastic. And the holes for the microphone and speaker, of course, are holes. Has anyone been surprised that a thin metal plate bends more easily than a thicker one? ”The publication added.
Apple has not yet commented on the situation.
