I was always a little concerned about bending my iPad Pro when travelling, especially with a fully loaded bag.

Simple solution, a nylon chopping board. Very light, tough and almost impossible to bend. The iPad sits flush against this board and there is now zero chance of bending.

Good idea..... how innovative, why not encase your iPad in a solid stainless steel case..... I have had the new 12.9" since launch date, and it's in a leather slip case, in and out of my laptop bag with a multitude of other things and it's still flat, COMPLETELY flat. It was flat when I got it, and it's still the same.....

I think you need a chopping board on each side. Hold it all together with rubber bands. But it might bend anyway because it seems that they are just bending in normal usage and not by physical stress, perhaps temperature change.

Wouldn’t that completely contradict the idea of this super light and thin iPad Pro?

This is exactly why I'm sticking with the 2018-style iPad. Buying a $1000+ device and having to literally strap it to a cutting board to protect it is absurd.

Hey, good, simple and cheap way to reducing bending stress on the iPad. Nice looking bag too!

Off topic but what bag is that, I like it.

Best anti-bend device anyone can employ is their own common sense. Good news is that everyone has it and its free.

For years I've use a laptop tray to help protect my iPads or laptops while traveling/carrying in a bag. Same concept, but I usually put it on the outer side of the bag to keep dents from forming :) .
