  • Apple Pencil is Subjected to Torture Testing, Bend Testing


    The Apple Pencil is the new stylus-like drawing utility that those using the iPad Pro can use to draw fine and controlled lines inside of drawing applications with strokes that are so fine in detail that a finger alone couldn't be accurate enough.

    Unfortunately, the Apple Pencil is ridiculed by many for having an odd way of charging its Lightning plug is designed to charge by plugging into the Lightning port of the iPad Pro, leaving a long stick hanging out of the charging port at the bottom of the iPad Pro and leaving some to question the reliability of such a charging method should accidents occur.

    To put the Apple Pencil to the test, YouTube user Zach Straley has put it through somewhat of a "torture" test. After plugging the Apple Pencil into the iPad Pro, you can see how well it fares against being bent around, whacked, and even contorted.



    The Apple Pencil appears to be able to handle quite a bit of abuse before giving up. Additionally, it appears to be very structurally built and won't bend when a lot of pressure it put on it. On the other hand, the part of the Apple Pencil where the Lightning connector is found appears to be the weakest point of the device. This is where damage occurred when high amounts of pressure and bending were applied.

    The iPad Pro's charging port, on the other hand, looks to be fine despite the abuse.

      I do not like the design, seems very bad. However, this test and video is completely idiotic, and actually I am impressed on how flexible the ipen connector was. The video author was lucky he did not ruin his ipad... People have too much time and money, it seems.

      Never mind all that, I’d be interested to find out if anybody can hack this thing to get it to pair with a normal iPad and how well it works.

      Now seriously, how stupid is this? I doubt there is a single Pencil, or pen, on the market, at any price, that can't be broken.

      That's not the point, what its showing is how hard it is to break, id like to know, if something was so delicate that if I accidentally sat on it, it'd snap like a ...well, pencil. These tests just show what kind of force is needed for a breaking point.
