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

Available in 11-inch and 12.9-inch screen sizes, the iPad Pro (2018) comes with some really nifty features, including a super-fast A12X Bionic chipset, and a redesigned Apple Pencil that can now charge wirelessly.

THE NEW IPAD PRO may be the same dimensions as A4 paper, but you absolutely shouldn't try and turn it into the world's most expensive paper aeroplane.

Whether you agree that those are reasons to ditch your notebook or not, it's clear the iPad Pro offers plenty to get excited about.

But is it a bad thing that the iPad Pro bends?

Two years ago, Microsoft mocked Apple's "iPad is a computer" claim in an ad for the Surface Pro 4.

So, if you've purchased the new Apple iPad Pro (or are planning to buy one soon), make sure you take proper care of it. The Apple Pencil, by the way, is even less durable than the tablet. The device's portability is also put forward as a major plus point. As was the case with the iPhone 6 Plus during 2016's Bendgate, this could also be an issue if you sit on it (which seems considerably less likely given the sheer size of the iPad Pro). Since then I've acquired a 10.5-inch iPad Pro and Apple's Smart Keyboard. His latest durability test of Apple's new productivity-focused product - which per his usual process involves trying to destroy it with sharp objects, force, and fire - shows that it takes minimal pressure to render the product essentially useless. Essentially the sapphire glass lens cover is no better than covering the lens with the glass used on the front of the iPad. At first they'll be Apple Store exclusives, though OtterBox says that eventually they'll be available from the company direct too.
