There are times when we have any device (a third-generation iPad Air, for example) and occasionally we detect small technical errors that we think are normal. A few small screen flickers (flickers), from time to time when it goes blank, but as a general rule, we do not stop using them in our day to day thinking that it will end up being removed. But no.
The problem is that all these errors do not occur sporadically and affect a good number of users who have complained to the company over the past few months. Keep in mind that the third-generation iPad Air hit stores just over a year ago, with a new model that increased the screen from 9.7 inches to 10.5 inches. It was the first to modify the original measurements of the first iPad that landed on the market in 2010.
Perhaps because it is an untested panel (if we ignore the Pro model that had a different screen) until that moment, Apple did not measure the problems that it was going to cause and that have led to the launch of a complete support program It covers all users who suffer from these problems of flickers and blank screenshots.
The new iPad Pro 2020 not only has the same processor as its predecessor but is even more fragile since it folds easily . This has been demonstrated by initial tests after its launch, showing that Apple cares little about solving the problems of previous versions while they have more and more cameras. Are we facing a Bendgate 3.0 ?
The first phenomenon known as « Bendgate » took place with the iPhone 6, since it was detected that they bent with some ease , especially when having the terminal in the pocket because when people sat down, they were put under certain pressure and ended up bent. On the iPhone 7, Apple corrected that problem by improving the structural integrity of the terminal, but with the first generation of the iPad Pro, we had a Bendgate 2.0 again, since it also folded easily (a lot, in fact).
IPad Pro 2020 doubles and Apple ignores itself
Now, with the new iPad Pro 2020 just launched on the market, it has been detected that the device easily bends, denoting that Apple has not lifted a finger to solve the problem and questioning, again, the quality of the products of those of Cupertino.
What is more, this new version of the iPad Pro (which is the second generation), only “improves” the cameras and little else, and in fact not only bends through the wide-area but also through the narrow one, as can be seen in the images.
According to Apple, this is not a problem in the design of the device: nobody should keep the iPad Pro in their pocket (there is some reason, because of its size it is not feasible) and therefore should not be folded. The problem is that when you carry it in a backpack something similar happens, the device ends up bending as soon as it is subjected to a certain pressure.
There are already several videos of analysts testing the resistance of the device, and in all cases, they have determined that most of the structural integrity of the iPad Pro 2020 resides in its screen and not in the metal structure, which should be reinforced but not it’s for nothing. This also means that when the iPad Pro 2020 is folded, the screen tends to split and drop glass chips.
