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

One of the reasons outlined in the video is that it is "more powerful than most computers", before showing it being used for gaming and other power-intensive functions.

Perhaps more significantly, a small number of users on the MacRumors forums are saying their iPad Pros are becoming misshapen from a normal amount of use - being carried in a backpack, typically. That is the new Apple iPad Pro.

Thirdly, they highlighted the mobility of the device, as well as its ability to get good signal in relatively poorly-covered areas. Now, Zack Nelson of the channel JerryRigEverything demonstrated how easy it is to bend and crack open the tablet without much exertion. Apple released a video today, giving five reasons why the iPad Pro should be your next computer.

It's certainly something to keep in mind when purchasing one of the new tablets, especially at its slightly exorbitant price point.

Reports of bending iPad Pro tablets have emerged on Reddit, Twitter and Apple-focused blogs like MacRumors.

But the "highlight" of the video, is the bend test, which happens just before the six and a half minute mark, showing the iPad Pro apparently being bent in half easily.

The Smart Keyboard Folio adds a physical QWERTY keyboard, and a way to prop up your iPad Pro so that it is positioned in front of you, sitting on any desk just like a personal computer. 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. Beware placing the Apple Pencil in a pocket as it might not survive.
