APPLE'S LATEST IPAD PRO IS A WEAK DESIGN – HERE IS WHYDate: 2018-11-29
JerryRigEverything's channel typically puts a variety of different products through their paces, including iPhone X's and iPad Pro's and, in the video below, it looks like Apple's latest iPad Pro can be easily bent and mangled without exerting much effort.
Host ,Zack Nelson, performed a quick "bend test," where he held a new iPad on both ends of the device and put pressure on it toward the middle. It doesn't appear that Nelson put much effort into bending the iPad, as you can see in the video.
Of course, it should not come as a surprise that any expensive device breaks when folded like a taco, and most consumers won't be trying to bend their tablets, would they? And it is kind of common sense that you should protect it at all costs if you spend the money to add a new iPad Pro to your collection.
It should be obvious that similar devices will all likely break if you intend to break them (duh!), but it's a bit odd to see them succumbing to even the slightest of pressure like this. The JerryRigEverything channel also tested the iPhone X in a recent drop test, and it was clear they're capable of handling some true abuse. It is unclear at this point why the iPad Pro misses the mark when it comes to toughness and stability.
It is certainly something that should be kept in mind when you purchase any new tablet, especially at its slightly exorbitant price point. Most folks won't have to worry about seeing the iPad bend like the video above unless they are aiming to break it on purpose, but perhaps its thinness is a contributing factor to potentially damaging models in the future.
