Thinking of buying Apple's new Ipad pro? Great, but you'll have to handle it more carefully. Which everyone do, when they buy one of the most premium and expensive gadget in the market, but this time one more reason is bendgate.

Yes, The Apple iphone 6 bendgate saga continues with Ipad pro and fails the bend test, as seen in famous Youtuber Zack Nelson's latest video on his JerryRigEverything channel. He also tries to destroy it with sharp objects, force, and fire in the video. He says "A tablet the size of a piece of paper folds like a piece of paper", "The iPad Pro is a thin, ridgeless aluminum sack with no structure holding things together. Like tinfoil wrapped around mashed potatoes."

As He points out, the product's ability to bend somewhat easily could be a problem for people carrying their tablet in their backpack with other large or heavy objects. As was the case with the iphone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus's Bendgate, this could also be an problem if you sit on it.

Although, on other side tech sites like Theverge.com is saying that "It was possible to bend previous iPads in a similar fashion. By design, tablets are thin devices with a lot of surface area. Of course they're going to break if that's what you're trying to do -- and we're not just talking about Apple here. I'd expect Samsung's Galaxy Tab S4 to fail a bend test, too. The iPhone 6 bendgate saga was different and rightly controversial because smartphones are typically much more rigid." is also worth considering.

At last, the Ipad pro is the expensive gadget, and it should definitely be treated as such, you can't be careless with these things anyway.
