    This guy makes money by producing videos that neckbearded Apple haters can masturbate to. That crowd is already calling it Bendgate 2.0. I hope they have plenty of tissues to clean up their mess after they’ve finished.
    The very reason I chose not to watch the video. I prefer not to give my view.

    I have had every generation of the iPhone save this 1st and all but one generation of iPad and have managed to not break the screen, scratch up the back or otherwise ruin the device and no, I do not use an Otter Box  other oversized case. I take both all around and most often use Kavaj cases which are mostly leather.

    By now Apple has a pretty good handle on making reasonably tough cases excepting the stupid glass backed models (price out the repair bill for a broken glass back). Cannot imagine the point of an exercise like this.

    William, your articles are a joy to read.  Being German this probably has twice the value. ;)

    edit: fixed an autocorrect typo.

    The Verge is posting the same story under the headline: "Apple's New iPad Pro Seems to Bend Really Easily." Weird how different sites handle the same news. They blame Apple while this site thinks the idiot who did everything he could to break his iPad might have some of the blame.

    What is the point of the video? Make money, nothing else.

    he's hoping to make a lot of money on the ad clicks... much more than the cost of an ipad pro

    I for one am very glad that imbecile destroyed his iPad Pro. He certainly doesn’t deserve to have a working one.

    Suggestion for his next video: I hear camera equipment and microphones are super-breakable. Also I’ll bet you could drill a hole in a YouTuber if you really wanted to.

    It seems they stopped after iPad 2 with views dropping from 18 Million downtown less than 3. which probably according to their logic would require them to bring along 12 views to make it zero for iPad 3. maybe thats why they stopped...

    Jerry Rig has been testing all devices for year's, as per usual this site tries to brainwash apple readers for protectionism purposes. Anybody with a brain can see how fragile the iPad pro is, and we have to question should it be at its price point. Only time will tell if it turns into a bendgate issue, but I doubt at the price it is selling there will be enough buyers to turn this into a major issue.

    Queue in the iKnockoff Knights who will scream how much this iPad is a failure and how it should have been dipped in titanium.

    Meanwhile in knockoff iPad land......




    Most people just decided to stick with their phone and laptop/pc after trying out a tablet, hence why tablet sales are falling.

    Giving something that deserves no attention front page news. Since you decided to write about it of course The Verge has too. Way to go rumor sites.

    Calling this testing is charitable. There are no force meters, those scratch picks have requirements for use, including applied force, angles of incidence, and how many approaches. 

    The "tests" are a joke.

    To me he was just joking. I thought it was hilarious.

    He should buy TEN of each product and “test” them and encourage his followers to all to the same. 

    As anApple investor I’d appreciate the added sales.  :)

    Remember how he tried to use the scratch picks to show that the sapphire cover on the iPhone back camera wasn’t sapphire after all? He didn’t know how to use the picks so he applied so much force that he cracked the sapphire which to him looked like a scratch. He then went on to clickbait fame by claiming Apple was lying about the sapphire cover. Not sure he ever retracted that nonsense.

    Watch his other videos, and you'll see their is some science to it and why he has such a good subscriber following. He had to use hardly any pressure to bend the iPad pro. I certainly follow him as I trust his viewpoint on how well made a device is.

    I had to laugh that apple used some soft sapphire on the camera too. God knows why the iPad pro cost what it does, there is nothing to it.

    I've seen many of his videos. There is zero science here. How much is "hardly any pressure?" How does that relate to, say, the iPhone X or the Note 9? And, as a previous commenter already mentioned, he misapplied the picks on the lens. His subscriber base is what it is because of hardware destruction, and not for scientific rigor.

    You're welcome to like and trust his videos. He is an entertaining and charismatic presenter. However, saying that they even approach scientific is like calling tofu, meat.

    He’s using the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, 10 being diamond, sapphire is 9. And that “sapphire” crystal lens cover clearly isn’t sapphire as tested by Jerry Rig. This is crazier than the bending.
