Newly launched iPad Pro can seemingly bend and break very easily

Essentially the sapphire glass lens cover is no better than covering the lens with the glass used on the front of the iPad.

Given the new iPad Pro's dimensions, I'm not surprised it bends somewhat easily, though I'd argue that unless you're doing something silly with the tablet, you probably won't end up with a bent device.

At the same time we do know that the new tablets are thinner than ever before (just 5.9 mm or 0.23 inches) - by making the devices so slim, Apple may have made them easier to break too.

It was a sleek, thin, metallic gadget and someone figured out that if you had it in your back pocket, it'd bend when you sat on it. But when he proceeded to apply his bend test, the iPad Pro failed terribly as it was totaled after applying a little bit of pressure.

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.

A new video which comes from a YouTube channel, JerryRigEverything, shows us that bending iPad Pro using hands and even slightly wouldn't be a very good idea. He stated that the bending and cracking happened due to the single microphone hole on the left and Apple Pencil's magnetic charging area on the right.

Internally, the iPad Pro does not seem to have any reinforcements for ensuring proper structural integrity.

Should you wish to use (or destory) one for yourself, the 11-inch iPad Pro starts at £769 for the Wi-Fi model and £919 for the Wi-Fi and Cellular version and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro starts at £969 for the Wi-Fi model and £1,119 for the Wi-Fi and Cellular version.
