How easy is it to bend and break the thinnest iPad Pro 2024? (video)

The new iPad Pro 2024, introduced just 10 days ago, is called Apple's thinnest tablet. The thickness of the 11-inch model is 5.3 mm, and the thickness of the 13-inch model is 5.1 mm. Does this mean that the tablet can be easily bent and broken? Video bloggers JerryRigEverything and AppleTrack decided to find out and conducted stress tests on the strength of the new tablet.

AppleTrack ran bend tests on two 11-inch tablets, one new and one old. Both tablets were slightly deformed as a result and received slight bends, but, oddly enough, the old tablet suffered more, even though it is thicker. Both devices continued to work normally after the test.

The blogger then tested the new and old 13-inch versions, and the results were similar. However, under vertical pressure, the body of both tablets was noticeably deformed and cracked near the USB-C port. As a result, the blogger managed to deform all four tablets, and cracks appeared on the glass, but at the same time, all the tablets continued to work.

It's worth noting, however, that during normal use the tablet is unlikely to experience the kind of stress experienced in these tests.

JerryRigEverything scratched, bent and ruined a 13-inch tablet much faster.

Although the new 2024 iPad Pro has demonstrated high durability, experts do not recommend leaving it under weight in a backpack, as this can still cause it to bend.
