Apple iPad Pro (2018) undergoes scratch, burn and bend test

Apple's newest iPad Pro has a great new design that sees the axing of the home button for a more immersive display and a slim form factor. Thanks to the App Store, the tablet is everything from a cinema where you can stream movies, to a book, an editing suite to work on your films, a music studio to add the right amount of gloss to your music, and more.

Apple has a new advertisement for the new iPad Pro lineup, which the company officially launched not too long ago.

The number three reason to make the new iPad Pro your next computer is how light it travels. It doesn't appear that Nelson put much effort into bending the iPad, as you can see in the video.

Though various reports of bending iPad Pro tablets have emerged, as it stands it seems that the issue isn't widespread. Most folks won't have to worry about seeing the iPad bend like this, unless they're aiming to break it on objective, but perhaps its thinness is a contributing factor to potentially damaging models in the future.

As The Verge rightly points out, other iPad models can also bend a lot easier than iPhones, so it's not like this is a major discovery. Of course, all tablets can be bent to a certain degree but the ease with which Zack could bend the iPad Pro's body should raise genuine concerns about Apple sacrificing build quality to shave off a few millimeters.

To finish things off, Nelson goes for his signature bend test, holding Apple iPad Pro (2018) horizontally and applying force in the middle with his thumbs. Beware placing the Apple Pencil in a pocket as it might not survive.
