  • Apple's Latest iPad Pro Appears Extremely Bendable, Folds Under Slight Pressure

The bending test video starts with the Apple Pencil that breaks with a surprising amount of ease; only slightly more than the force it takes to break a normal wooden pencil was needed to break the Apple Pencil.

In the video (embedded below), Nelson starts off by testing the iPad Pro's display for scratch resistance using multiple picks conforming to Mohs hardness scale.

This is a great video to check out if you're mulling a new tablet purchase. Now, add to that the £89 for the Apple Pencil and the £199 for the Smart Keyboard Folio and you've got a grand total of £2,157.
