The full video includes the taking apart of a second generation Apple Pencil as well as the inscribing of a Spider-Man face in the anodization on the back of the iPad Pro, a sign that the anodization is perhaps not as thick as it could be.

The YouTuber then proceeds to scratching the entire chassis of iPad Pro using a metal blade, with the body getting scratches all around, but still remaining intact. As for the bend test - sure, you're probably not going to fit an iPad this big in your pants' pockets, but you might inadvertently sit on it while it's on a couch or something.

The JerryRigEverything channel typically puts a variety of different products through their paces, including the iPhone Xs in a recent drop test, and it was clear they're capable of handling some true abuse. The channel says the iPad Pro "folds like a piece of paper", and sensationally explains it's the equivalent of "tinfoil wrapped around mashed potatoes".

The most interesting, and hurtful, part though is the actual bend test.

Zack Nelson, the YouTuber behind popular channel JerryRigEverything, has made a decision to apply the idea to Apple's brand new iPad Pro. It also comes in a 12.9-inch version which will likely react exactly the same way if subjected to the same amount of force. The lesson is to take good care of your new iPad Pro, something we hope you were doing anyway.

Structural integrity with these aluminum iPad Pro models are apparently "lacking", due to its super thin design.

It's certainly something to keep in mind when purchasing one of the new tablets, especially at its slightly exorbitant price point. The video shows off how easy and effortless it is to bend the iPad Pro in half. And definitely don't try to bend it.
