No, this sadly is not some new technology Apple invented, and we're not looking at a foldable iPad. However, a new video from JerryRigEverything shows how Apple has made a few structural compromises to make this super slim iPad and, well, you will want to make sure you do not apply any kind of pressure on this tablet. Essentially the sapphire glass lens cover is no better than covering the lens with the glass used on the front of the iPad.
After taking a scalpel to the new Apple Pencil and cutting into the screen in a way that hurts our very soul, the bend test is over alarmingly quickly.
Apple has always put the iPad Pro as a potential replacement to your computer, and for some that may actually work out! You won't want anyone to sit on it, or have it bend while you're lugging it around in a backpack or suitcase. The bigger cutout is found on the right side of the tablet and it's needed to charge the new Apple Pencil wirelessly.
But the tablet can be bent without much effort, as you'll see in the clip. In the video (embedded below), Nelson starts off by testing the iPad Pro's display for scratch resistance using multiple picks conforming to Mohs hardness scale. It should be obvious that similar devices will all likely break if you intend to break them, but it's a bit odd to see them succumbing to even the slightest of pressure like this. It's unclear at this point why the iPad Pro misses the mark when it comes to toughness and stability, and Apple hasn't released any sort of statement or response in regard to the video.
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.
