    I remember last year, the iPad Air was really fragile. During the drop test video, its screen broke very easily. But now, since they laminated it to the screen, will it make it more resistant to drops?

    If so, I'm pretty sure I'll return my AppleCare+

    I might be wrong on this, but I believe you're not understanding what lamination means. It doesn't make it stronger. It just makes it better for veiwing and clarity. Prior, the three layers of the screen (glass, touch layer, and the actual display) were seperate, but now they're laminated into one layer.

    I doubt it. My SP3 has a laminated screen and it's a little flexi.

    joining few layers into one...wouldn't it make the screen have better rigidity somehow? I suspect that because of the lamination, no more gap between layers and thus the hollow screen issue in iPad Air can be gone.
