Bendgate 2: 2018 iPad Pro Can Apparently Bend Easily

Apple recently launched the new iPad Pro with a better design and improved specs which makes the device faster and it looks more durable than it's predecessors.

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

The iPhone XR recently launched in the USA, if you bought the device you would have to buy it with one of the mobile carriers, this has now changed and the handset can be purchased SIM free from Apple.

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.

That may be true, but it's still alarming to see just how fragile the newly released iPad Pro actually is. However, the part where the tablet did not recover from was the bend test.

He said if one looks at large firms, their life spans tend to be 30-plus years and not hundred-plus years, CNBC said in a report. He further said that one day Amazon will fail but their job is to delay it as long as possible.

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.

It's simple physics that a large 10-inch tablet is going to be easier to snap than a small 5-inch phone, but thanks to a YouTube bend test and several user complaints it seems the new iPad Pros might be a little more prone to bending than anyone would like. The Apple Pencil, by the way, is even less durable than the tablet.

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