Apple's new iPad Pro may be the last great tablet, but you'd be wise to handle it carefully.

The iPad Pro testing starts with a screen scratch test that shows marks turn up beginning with a level six hardness pick, standard for glass scratching according to the video. However, there have been complaints made by some iPad Pro owners who put their new tablets inside a backpack and discovered that their devices now have a noticeable bend to them.

That may be true, but it's still alarming to see just how fragile the newly released iPad Pro actually is. While this will remind people of the iPhone 6's "Bendgate" issues, which Apple fixed, the comparison isn't warranted.

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. "Since phones are such a hot commodity - and Apple is pretty strict on the discounts they allow - the deals on these items tend to be very specific and they come with a lot of sticklers", Sarah Hollenbeck, Shopping and Retail Expert at, told Fox News. If you want to check out the durability test, the video has been given below.

JerryRigEverything further mentioned that the bending was seemingly possible because of holds and cutouts found on either side of the Aluminum frame. Considering iPad Pro is the most premium iPad offering from Apple boasting a hefty price tag, ample sturdiness tests must be performed and quality materials must be used to make sure that everything goes as per the expectation. From snapping the new Apple Pencil in half, to literally scratching Spider-Man's face into the back of the tablet.
