Apple foldable iPad? No, just an easily bendable iPad Pro

While, yes, the iPad Pro is hardly pocket-sized, it's very easy to imagine things getting bendy if someone were to accidentally sit on one. Essentially the sapphire glass lens cover is no better than covering the lens with the glass used on the front of the iPad.

A hot potato: Back in 2016, Apple claimed in its TV ads that the iPad Pro wasn't just a tablet, but a full computer that was a worthy laptop replacement.

But the tablet can be bent without much effort, as you'll see in the clip. For starters, phones are a lot more compact than tablets, which means they should be a lot more durable.

If product destruction porn is your jam, the rest of the video is pretty interesting as well, particularly if you have an itch to see the guts of either the iPad Pro or the Apple Pencil. Furthermore, you don't put iPads in jeans pockets as you do with phones, so that type of accidental bending is not likely to occur.

As JerryRigEverything owner Zack Nelson explains, the iPad bends along the middle because there are holes in the aluminum frame on either side. However, a new video from JerryRigEverything shows how Apple has made a few structural compromises to make this super slim iPad and, well, you will want to make sure you do not apply any kind of pressure on this tablet.

To make matters worse, the battery inside the Apple Pencil isn't one of the lithium-ion types that are solid and flexible, the battery in the wirelessly charging Pencil has acid in it, and at one point in the video that acid squirts out. A tablet this size will be placed often in backpacks, bags, or even on a couch cushion.
