While no one is going to intentionally put their iPads through the bend test, they might need to be extra careful with the device.

That is, of course, absolutely ridiculous but it does highlight the uphill struggle Apple will face when trying to convince people that the iPad Pro is a potential computer replacement.

They also showcased the ease of use for which Apple devices have become famous - specifically focusing on the simplicity of using the touch screen for navigation.
