iPad Pro M4 bend tests: durability equal to M2 model despite thinness

Initial folding tests of the iPad Pro M4 are underway, and the initial consensus seems to be that Apple has managed to make its thinnest device ever as durable as the previous generation iPad Pro M2 it replaces .

Two approaches were taken during bend testing by prominent tech YouTubers. JerryRigEverything, for example, applied force pressure by bending the new device with his hands, while MobileReviewsEh took a different approach by placing the iPad under a dynamometer and applying gymnastic weights on top to exert pressure in a limited contact area.

By folding the iPad Pro from the back into a horizontal position, JerryRigEverything found that the device held up “surprisingly well,” as if “suspicious levels of black magic structural integrity” were occurring.

When forcibly bent from the back, the glass screen eventually came away from the frame, but the screen and operating system continued to function normally. However, when it came to putting pressure on the device vertically, it was a different story, and the iPad Pro quickly suffered a catastrophic split down the middle, originating from the USB-C port.

JerryRigEverything then removed the screen to reveal and remove the internal components, including the new metal cover that runs across the middle of the device. “If Apple could have added another more perpendicular column widthwise near the charging port, this thing probably would have survived,” he added.

JerryRigEverything concluded that the new iPad Pro’s central spine “certainly provides enough structure for horizontal turns” and should hold up to everyday use in a backpack or luggage. In his own AppleTrack review, Sam Kohl agreed: “Is (its thinness) a sustainability risk? The answer is no. The spine that Apple placed along the motherboard is very good, unless you bend the corners.

After placing over 70 pounds of weight on the center of the iPad Pro’s screen to complete structural failure, MobileReviewsEh concluded that the new iPad Pro is “just as tough, if not a bit tougher” than the previous one. whom he replaces, although he is 18 years old. -20% thinner than iPad Pro M2.

Overall, another “bendgate” seems unlikely. For those unfamiliar with the controversy, Apple admitted in 2019 to shipping its new models with a “very slight curvature of the aluminum chassis,” which it blamed on a “side effect of the manufacturing process.”

Despite videos indicating that 2018 iPad Pro models bend more easily than other models, Apple has said that the curvature does not worsen over time or negatively affect the iPad’s performance, and that concerns regarding the durability of the device were unfounded. Still, some iPad owners were understandably upset to see defects on devices costing hundreds of dollars.
