Apple's New iPad Pro Sparks Another Bendgate After Folding Under Minimal Pressure

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

In fact, the slate snapped quite easily, indicating that you should not apply a significant amount of force on the tablet, such as accidentally sitting on it.

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 iPad Pro gets scratched with a razor blade, and unsurprisingly it does get scratched. For starters, phones are a lot more compact than tablets, which means they should be a lot more durable.

The iPhone XR recently launched in the U.S., 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.

As Nelson points out, the product's ability to bend somewhat easily could be a problem for people carrying their tablet in their backpack with other large or heavy objects, reports of which have already surfaced. Earlier, Filip Koroy of popular YouTube channel EverythingApplePro showed how fragile the new iPad Pros are when dropped from waist height.

After examining the damage, it was found that the crack took place right where the microphone hole is present and where the wireless charging dock is placed for the new and improved Apple Pencil.

iFixit does careful teardowns to figure out how repairable the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil 2 are. Then again, these devices aren't supposed to be indestructible, so pay attention to how you treat them.

Apple's recently released iPad Pro can bend or break without much pressure, according to well-known YouTube channel JerryRigEverything.
