Does it bend?

Super-thin iPad Pro undergoes bend tests.

The new iPad Pro is even thinner than the annoying and fiddly Siri Remote for Apple TV (see the social media post below). So how can it possibly not be flimsy?

It’s so large, and so thin, that it’s got to be at least a little bit flexible, right?

After the tablet’s launch yesterday, several YouTubers were wondering the same thing. And they actually put the new iPad to the test, seeing how it held up to bend tests. Here are the surprising results.

One more thing ...

We don't get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die, you know? So this is what we've chosen to do with our life. We could be sitting in a monastery somewhere in Japan.
