Bendgate continues with the iPad Air 2, and it’s far worse than we’ve ever imagined.
In a new YouTube video that will surely make any tablet owner’s knuckles whiten and teeth clench, the latest iPad Air 2 undergoes a bend test to see how much pressure it can endure.
YouTube user Martin Macht starts bending his new iPad Air 2 with his bare hands, but the bend turns into a break. Tiny pieces start to fall off and the screen shatters, leaving your jaw on the ground.
Miraculously, there’s a twist: Even after the damage, the iPad Air 2 still works. (Well, sort of.)
The test comes on the heels of Bendgate, the controversy surrounding the ability of the iPhone 6 Plus (and later, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4) to bend under pressure.
