    Unfortunately the ipad air 2 will bend if you put it in your pocket.. hopefully the air 3 will fix this problem, wouldn't recommend buying the air 2 with this major fault.

    why he got cellular data version is beyond me.

    he must be rich to buy a more expensive iPad and just bend it.

    He thinks he can make more money off the youtube hits than what it cost for the iPad. Jerk.

    Dang. Air2 isn't very durable at all. Really glad I saw this before going to pick mine up today. /s

    It's just retarded though..... Of course it will bend of given enough pressure. Guess what I can probably bend my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with enough pressure as well along with a Samsung Galaxy tab s 10.5. It is basically impossible to bend a iPad in normal circumstances.

    I generally feel sick after watching it. I've just given my iPad Air 2 a hug

    Only if he doesn't get enough hits to go in the black. Otherwise it's genius. But not a great businessman for buying a cellular model.

    Not sure if serious, but if it's an accident, yes. However, when you blast it to the world that you did it on purpose, probably not.

    Apple have declined to comment on this question stating that only 9 complaints have been made so far regarding the ipad air 2's bendability

    If that's the case he should be at break even before the end of the day. He's almost there now unless he was a total dolt and bought something other than the 16GB model.

    I watched the video on mute as I'm at work, he doesn't have a London accent does he? Looks like he would.

    Seriously though, the thing is damn flexible. You couldn't do that with an iPad the pre-Air designs, I reckon. Given the flex and the vibrations from the speakers, I strongly suspect they've made the aluminium thinner.

    ----------

    Easy to get around that though - just get somebody else to do the purchase.

    There are other guys applying a more reasonable amount of pressure and they couldn't bend it.

    One was a more professional reviewer and another video is some guy at his house.

    Under every day use it isn't going to bend.

    If you need a tablet that can withstand that amount if force then get a Toughpad

    I was half serious... I guess I was thinking if it was covered (not sure how he will describe to the Apple Store how it happened), the deductible would be the same regardless if it was the Cellular version or not.

    I've got a few videos with under 10,000 views and have seen some bucks from them. But I'm not even at $100 yet, and you can't cash-out until $100 from what I gather. But I could be wrong.

    Absolutely ****ing ridiculous. Unfortunately for Apple this crap about bending is not going away any time soon with jerks like this willing to break something just for clicks. Shameful really. Given enough motivation anything can be bent or broken.
