2018 iPad Pro "Folds Like a Piece of Paper" in Bend Test

  • A popular YouTuber was able to bend the new iPad Pro easily

As if bending it once wasn't enough, JerryRigEverything then tries to "bend it back" in place, but it's obvious at this point that the iPad Pro has been rendered useless.

Besides the video, Apple-centric site MacRumors also reported that there had been a few complaints about the iPad Pro's bending issue on its forums. 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.

Nelson tested out the 11-inch display, the smaller of Apple's iPad Pro models.

'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. YouTuber JerryRigEverything put the tablet through a multi-part stress test, including the damning bend test, and he was left with a mangled wreck of an Apple device. Like tinfoil wrapped around mashed potatoes'.


It's unusual for Zack to do this for a tablet, but the results are very interesting nevertheless.

But, it turns out, the iPad Pros can be bent with your bare hands, so you'd better make sure you protect yours accordingly, and avoid placing it in areas where it could be easily damaged. And it's safe to assume that if the 11-inch bends this way, the 12.9-inch version definitely does too. The lesson is to take good care of your new iPad Pro, something we hope you were doing anyway. According to Nelson, "the iPad Pro just doesn't have any of that structural integrity stuff".

But the tablet can be bent without much effort, as you'll see in the clip.
