Apple will have four days of Black Friday deals

A new video from JerryRigEverything (embedded below) puts the new iPad Pro to the ultimate abuse test.

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.

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

2018 iPad Pro is more powerful than most computers.

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

Swapping the lightning port for USB Type-C has definitely helped Apple's cause, even though its operating system doesn't support external storage devices. The device's portability is also put forward as a major plus point. That is, of course, absolutely ridiculous but it does highlight the uphill struggle Apple will face when trying to convince people that the iPad Pro is a potential computer replacement.

Everything has a failure threshold and the iPad Pro is no different.

Apple's new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro are prone to bending, according to various reports. Since then I've acquired a 10.5-inch iPad Pro and Apple's Smart Keyboard. Most folks won't have to worry about seeing the iPad bend like this, unless they're aiming to break it on goal, but perhaps its thinness is a contributing factor to potentially damaging models in the future. Let's take a look at where this device started, and how it has changed and evolved over the years.

Apple could go in an entirely new direction for 2018. At first they'll be Apple Store exclusives, though OtterBox says that eventually they'll be available from the company direct too.
