Famous YouTuber Zack Nelson – The One Who jerry is everything The chain – taking its kit to Apple’s latest iPad in a durability test, might we say now, doesn’t end well for the device.
Released two months ago to mixed reviews, the new iPad is Apple’s tenth budget iPad, available in a range of colors.
Opting for a pink iPad, Nelson begins by pointing out how he’s “officially catching up with the rest of the world” by installing a USB-C port, replacing Apple’s Lightning port.
Before taking his knife to the iPad, Nelson also points out the absurdity of Apple’s decision to keep the Lightning connector on the iPad-compatible Apple Pencil, guaranteeing you’ll need a $9 dongle to plug it in. on a USB-C port. “Apple loves it, though,” Nelson says, adding, “I heard they’re even changing their tagline from ‘think different’ to ‘think dongle’. »
Using Nelson’s Zero Test Mohs Hardness Scale It shows iPad screen damage starting at level 6, with deeper grooves at level 7. “Nice standard,” says the YouTuber.
Then the knives come out and lots of scratching and scraping ensues. Warning to the most sensitive souls: this bit of sturdiness will cause the hairs on the back of the neck to stand on end, so it’s best to watch this part with the volume turned down.
After trying to engrave a cartoon character on the back of the iPad (“not my best work,” Nelson admits), the iPad started to look a little rough. Then a lighter pops out, with an open flame racing across the iPad screen, an action that causes some funky behavior with the glass.
Finally, the bend test, where Nelson uses all his strength to push the iPad chassis to its limits. Of course, no one would fold it like that in an everyday scenario, and it’s no surprise that the iPad splits into two parts. Don’t stand or sit on the thing. Nelson notes that the weak point of the iPad seems to be the keyboard connection points on the side of the device.
Grabbing a mangled iPad, Nelson ends the video by inspecting its innards. It shows a few surprises, including an abundance of empty space and a speaker some distance from the grill opening.
