iPad Pro 2018 Durability Test

This was an interesting year, as we have seen some interesting product launch by the Cupertino tech giant, Apple, where, first we have seen the launch of new iPhone series, that is, Apple Watch 4 series, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and also the CHEAPER iPhone XR, but this becomes more interesting when Apple announced the new iPad Pro 2018 series with latest in-house A12 Bionic Chipset based on 7nm technology that makes the performance of the iPad Pro better than predecessor. Along with the improved performance, the new iPad Pro 2018 comes with the new and compact design which is 25 per cent smaller in volume, with narrow bezels and no physical home button, and with all this, it is amazingly thin, with a thickness of 5.9mm only. With a sleek and compact design, the question arises, if the new iPad Pro 2018 is durable enough. Well, the device has been tested, with which we came to know about durability from the iPad Pro 2018 Durability Test.

The iPad Pro 2018 durability test has been done by renowned tester Zack Nelson on his YouTube channel, JerryRigEverything and for this he put the Poco F1 through different series of tests, to check the physical durability of the device.

Jerry started the durability test with the scratch test on the iPad. In the test, the screen is scratched with different material, the material is generally those which can possibly scratch the screen in a daily normal usage. In the test, the screen of the iPad was able to dodge the scratches till level 5, and level 6 scratches appear with deeper groves at level 7. If you are new, let us tell you that this is completely normal for the devices launching these days, or we can say it is standard level and iPad Pro 2018 passes the test.

Apple claims that the camera lens of the iPad Pro 2018 comes with the Sapphire coating that is, it won’t be easy to scratch the surface, but according to Jerry, the statement is not up to the mark, it’s better than the display coating but the camera lens does get scratches, as you can see in the image below.
