iPad Pro 12.9 (2021) with M1 gets subjected to scratch, burn, and bend testing

10 June 2021
The humongous device comes with the most processing power ever, and the first ever mini-LED LCD.

Sort by:

Love Yac Nelson drawin he could sell those like Andy Warhol art. Its outstanding.
He could create new way of art. Tablet drawing and we could name it shorter for terms of understanding and better recognition for example TADRA. TA-blet DRA-wing. So TADRA.

jsjsjsjjsjsjsjsjs, 11 Jun 2021cases exist people, including screen protectors Screeen protector wont save you from bending your device. Apple case too because its made of plastic and is very thin.
Paying 60 to 100 bucks for original apple case made of low quality platic which cant whitstand bending like this or accidental sitting on your device is just money tossed from window.

Anonymous, 11 Jun 2021but for android user , they dont care about performance , b... moreMan Lenovo Yogapro or Ipad Pro for 300-400 bucks does same tricks more battery ram and equal speed for 1/3 or 1/4 price of Ipad. Thats all that matters.
And there is lot more better on thioose devices for much cheaper price compared to this one.

jamesschwarz987, 11 Jun 2021Beware, lots of people here hates apple and likes to assume... moreWell lots fof people are right.
Lenovo for 300 bucks offers equal specs and much more ram also a lot friendly OS and SD card support with bigger battery and faster charging speeds.
And thats 1/4 of price of this.
So lot of people are right. Paying 1200 for a device where a 300 or 400 eur device does same or better tricks is unecessary and a total waste of money and supporting brand which passionate in greed and tahts said fact.

Anonymous, 11 Jun 2021Easy to bend.. burn.. scratch = bad? Nah. Those are not ... moreMan Lenovo for 1/3 price made a lot better or equal tablet.
And thats 1/3 of the Ipad.
M1 could be the fastest CPU used in tablets and phones but only on paper in real life use any SD7XX or 8XX can run any app or game at equal speeds as M1. So paying 1200 bucks for something equal to Yoga Pad Pro for 400 bucks or Ipad Pro which cost only around 300. For 300 or 400 bucks having a device which offers bigger battery faster charging and more ram and equal CPU also supports and SD card and offers a much more device friendly OS which is android which is compatible to everything except apple where apple is compatible to its self barelly is much better in my opinion.

beep bop boop, 11 Jun 2021Apple can thicken it a bit to counter the bending Oh and... moreWell exactly.
If the tablet is made from glass the drawing would be inpossible but apple doesnt care on that.
They just put material which they think suits them best.

Well for bendtest Zack isnt the proper person.
bend test on these devices should be provided by Marius Pudzianovsky, Oleksii Novikov, Tom Stoltman, Martins Licis, Mateusz Kieliszkowski, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, Eddie Hall etc.
Those people would do proper bend testing and prove apple devices arent that great when comes to durability. Same could go to any other company or brand when comes to bend testing by any of people above,

Bigmeme, 11 Jun 2021Tabs actually have higher chances of bending. My friend... morenah, the iPad still treated better. Take a look at latest iPod touch, it's definitely got a cheaper build.

Anonymous, 11 Jun 2021Oh no... So no improvement in build quality The bigger 12.9" one actually got veeeery slightly thicker at 6.4mm, probably due to the Mini LED panel, which isn't giving a much improvement on build quality.

If you haven't watched the video, the iPad isn't dead shut like previous generation. It's still alive, with no glass shatter, albeit its body obv. got a heavy severe bent, even the panel is still alive and well.

If you wanted to have a top notch built tabet, go for a rugged tabs. Every thin consumer tablets have this same build quality either Galaxy Tab, Mediapad, iPad, or even Surface on certain position (the flap really brings its build support).

Easy to bend.. burn.. scratch = bad?

Nah. Those are not judging criteria for tablets. This iPad pro is still top of the piles of tablets for the year.
