What would the Internet be without the JerryRigEverything scratch, burn and bend tests? He usually applies those to smartphones, but now it’s time for a tablet to go through it, Apple Pencil 2 included. Let’s see the result.

The YouTuber breaks the pen in half and says that the accessory is a tad more resilient than the average wood pencil. A pressure sensitive tip and some magnets pop up. As far as the iPad Pro (2018) scratch test goes, the screen gets some tracks at level 6 out of 9, like the usual smartphone nowadays. Then the patient guy takes a cutter to the sides, back and edges.



It’s all metal, so there’s no unpleasant surprise here. Extra bonus points go to the creator of the video for the Spider-Man drawing with the cutter at the back. The main camera is covered by sapphire glass, at least on paper, but in real life it’s normal glass, scratching at the same level 6. The lighter test saw the screen lasting 10 seconds under the heat of the flame, before turning off and then recovering slowly.



The core point of the video was the bend test and it didn’t work out fine. The new iPad Pro (2018) is waaaay too easy to bend, sadly. JerryRigEverything didn’t even break a sweat when doing, but the screen did… break in a million pieces. The middle of the device is the weakest point and it’s very vulnerable. The worst thing is that the breakage leaves vital stuff open, like the battery pack and components.



Accessories seem like a must here and extra attention when carrying the slate around… Somehow I feel that a glass back would have made it tougher.
