The iPad Pro Is Bending. I'm Not Happy.
We can't do too much joking around because this is a serious show you know that is it though really so I pretty much just read an article on Macworld thing that iPads are bending yes I've heard about this I got the tweets the people they reached out you may or may not know the whole bending of Apple products bendgate

people want me to weigh in a lot of people requesting that I talk about this yeah it's a touchy subject do you have any thoughts well no one wants bent anything no I don't know if that's true and maybe there's some things that it always comes back to this conversation of like how big of a deal is it mm-hmm is it catastrophic how many devices does it affect it's the same kind of conversation that happened back in a day when your original iPhone bent the iPhone 6 the thing I like to talk about from this end of the spectrum I'm not a brand I am NOT Apple so I'm always gonna advocate for the people if you are someone who's affected by this I think you have a point it should be fixed it's not an ideal scenario and in the case of the original iPhone that bent Apple went back to the drawing board and switched their materials because they knew something was wrong even though they didn't necessarily admit to it publicly

 can they do that in this case I don't actually know the makeup of the alloy being used in the iPad what I do know is that it's impossibly slim like that thing is crazy thin is mine bent I don't think so maybe I don't know yeah you would probably have to use like a level yeah you probably have to use a level that oh how durable is anything that's this thin like the of course there's a common sense component and that's always what the Apple fans get angry about they're like who's bending your bending why are you bending your stuff you're just not taking care of it kind of thing what I've been reading online is the biggest culprit to these types of bends in the case of the iPad is putting it in a backpack so some of the individuals apparently they put the devices into a backpack in the textbooks another weight that you would typically have in a backpack was leaning up against it and then they end up with a bent iPad that's a regular use case scenario you should be able to do that without having a pen I got it I don't know about you would you agree yeah I can imagine you know being late for class or something and then you just stuff your textbooks and iPads and your in your bag it's pretty normal but the fact that they you know are bending just like that it's it doesn't make you feel comfy with your new product your new thousand dollars absolutely not the other point to make is I was reading some of the responses

some of the follow-up from Apple it's a bit confusing because I know the verge reported that they had an official Apple response but then Apple was like that's not our official response anyhow there was this guy in engineer or whoever he was he was responding to some email requests regarding the bending from customers and he stated that this is that this device is designed to their specification if it's a little bit bent no big deal keep using it it's a manufacturing thing it'll stay as bent as it is now that's weird that response is probably more weird than the actual bending because here you have the biggest consumer electronics company coming out and saying a little bit of a bend no big deal even if it's out of the box when you buy it that's unusual yeah I mean in their unofficial statement saying you know these iPads are either a not bent or B supposed to be bent yeah by design yarder the cooling process it's hard to figure out where to land on it of course when I made that original video it was a big it's still the most popular video that I posted I think it has 70 million views on it a follow-up to that story that many people didn't necessarily catch up on was the fact that further problems on the iPhone 6 this touch disease problem that crept up later was a consequence of these slight bends so for people who were thinking that it was strictly aesthetic at the time it went on to have this further issue with these phantom touches taking place on the display because it screwed up the digitizer when it had that slight bend in it yeah but that didn't happen for like a year or two afterwards so people that thought they were they were safe out of the woodwork went went on to acquire different problems eventually from that issue and Apple went on to replace many devices under a repair program

B Casas said touch disease in the case of the iPad it might not even be a thing where you realize the extent of the damage immediately but there may be other issues that creep up because of these slight bends in in the frame over time mm-hmm it might not be strictly aesthetic but like a lot of these things that generate a ton of hype and as you know new Apple product comes out it's a whole experience it's a whole thing cuz Apple is already doing a good job of telling you why you need it so you're trying to find out well okay that's cool but maybe why not show me the why not and that's what people depend on this type of content for so when I saw the video online where the iPad was bent in half really easily of course I'm not bending things anymore mm-hmm you can attest to that yeah I've moved on look take a look around I moved on but I think we're at a point now where these devices are shrinking down so much that it's kind of inevitable they're not going to be as tough because we demand thinness we demand lightweight lightweight mm thin powerful yeah beautiful we want it all and we never want to pay the price with a bent anything yeah but with this iPad I mean it's 800 bucks it's expensive the problem is that a lot of people are seeing iPads that are bent when they just first open it yeah yeah I mean out of the box it's no fun that that part of the experience and relationship that you have with a product is so important so it's obviously no fun especially an Apple product especially an Apple product fresh box sleek design and so on I'm actually gonna be a little bit optimistic on this one I know right now some people are having issues getting their units replaced I think Apple's gonna do the right thing I think if that's your iPad the one in that picture yeah I think they're probably gonna replace it for you I think they should Apple if you're watching just just replace the bent one yeah at least hundreds of unofficial replace something do something about it because that's that's no fun that's not a happy customer obviously and your Apple you have a few bucks laying around there you go huh you know offshore offshore cache and possibly go back to the drawing board like they did with the iPhone 6 maybe change some materials put some reinforcements and hopefully we get a better product that's the main thing that's the main point with these types of topics it's like you're not just talking about it for the for strictly the purpose of hype that's helpful of course you want people to watch the content that you make in the stories that you're right but also because uncovering things like this actually leads to further development and improvement of physical products

the ones that end up in your pocket like happened with the 6s as a response to the iPhone 6 so it's all good if you like Apple it's good if you don't like Apple it's good it's good to have this kind of stuff out in the open better iPads in the future regardless of the bending and stuff and the fact that it didn't replace a laptop for me it's still an incredible achievement in this product in a sense of how powerful it is how wonderful the screen is in in a form factor like this they did strive for a good iPad I think that's what they did here you know you know minus the bending I don't think there's any other issues with it right and I think a lot of people maybe would use this maybe the price yeah that's for sure but you know if you're a college student and you know it's either that or the laptop maybe that's a good option does it in any way stop you from recommending this device possibly to a loved one a family member a friend I would totally recommend it for anyone who doesn't want to use a laptop I think that's the best right tablet that's out there right now well let's be clear for a thousand bucks you can tell people to get a laptop still I know I am sure sure it's a lot of money for a tablet for it for an iPad yeah but it's the best tablet I would have to say I'll say the same for sure how does this end this show.
