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.

Apple has released a video outlining why it believes that the new iPad Pro can replace customers' traditional computers. The hardness level where the sapphire camera lens cover scratches isn't up to par; it scratched at much lower hardness levels than similar materials from other manufacturers.

'A tablet the size of a piece of paper folds like a piece of paper, ' explained Nelson in a video that has amassed almost three-and-a-half million views.

No, this sadly is not some new technology Apple invented, and we're not looking at a foldable iPad.

When Zack tried to bend the 11-inch iPad Pro, it folded like "a piece of paper" proving that its structural integrity can be easily compromised. We'll be keeping an eye out for any more reports of Apple tablets bending more easily than they really should be. However, the ease with which the Apple Pencil cracked in half certainly makes it likely to break if you slide it in a pocket and sit down or drop it and then accidentally step on it.

It's too early to say whether the new iPad Pros are any easier to snap or bend than their predecessors - a device this shape is always going to be susceptible to deliberate attempts to bend it, and most iPad Pro owners are reporting no problems with bending.

"Apple recently launched an entirely redesigned iPad Pro line, in two sizes - 11" and 12.9". 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.

The YouTube channel put the latest iPad Pro through various tests and the tablet did not fare well, most destructive of which was the bend test.
