I don't care for these kind of videos - I'm already aware that dropping glass onto concrete is likely to break it.Properly not a problem for most, but beware having it in a backpack. Fast forward to the 8min mark.
Compared to the pervious model, it's almost like butter. 2017:Who’d have thought testing an iPad to destruction would cause problems.
As for bending it, well aside from it being quite large, so probably easier to bend regardless. The screen was already broken when he was bending it, that’s a huge difference in structural integrity.
This. These devices get a non trivial amount of their structural integrity from the display glass. His whole testing regime is terrible, everything after the first drop test, isn't testing an iPad, it's testing a damaged iPad. Thus when he gets to the end he's not "bend testing" an iPad, he's testing a damaged one, and in this case a fatally compromised one. Maybe this iPad is easier to bend, but we don't really know from this test.In that video, when he tries bending it the screen is still intact. In the first video you posted, the screen was shattered. So again, big difference in structural integrity between them.
