The new iPad bests heat, cold, and water in brutal torture test
To that end the new iPad gets left in a freezer, baked in an oven, dropped, keyed, and even doused with water (though mercifully not fully submerged). If you’re a true iConnoisseur at heart it may be difficult to watch, but Apple’s latest tablet proves to be quite the trooper.
The five minute video is certainly worth a watch, but we’d also like to hear from you – what’s the worst thing you’ve done to your phone or tablet that still resulted in a happy ending? Share it with us in the comments section below.

Ok, test without scientifical precision made by some kids, you know what they say? ... Nothing !

it could have been done with chimpanzees..the beat the ipad wook that. was real...

A drop test has thousands of variables, is science not fanboism. That iPad would break if the test was done in a different type of floor..
so Apple would say you are using the wrong floor :D!

For your mind even flying iPigs exist... isn't nice to talk with an iFan that doesn't know what is physics and science tecnology -.-

it has nothing to do if I am an fan or not.. I just agree to an article.. dont recal saying or believing pigs fly but I guess to make your argument valid you had to go there. so not surprise from a fandroid..

Just ignore them, gallitoking, phonearena is infested with fandroids. No freedom of speech whatsoever. Good luck expressing positive opinion about things other than android. I'm sick of the OS only because of it's fans, better said, religious fanatics.

"New" iPad is based on hot glue...

Normal people don't bake their tablets. If you drop it, it'll still shatter. The OS still sucks.

The people thumbing u down know how good a tablet the iPad is, but simply hate apple so much they won't give them any credit whatsoever. Tech companies want to kill the iPad/iPhone for a reason,and it isn't because apple products suck... It's because apple products r top notch in performance, and build quality. If android is Nissan then apple is Honda, they're apples to oranges meaning both r excellent and u can't go wrong either way. Let the thumbs down begin, cuz u know I'm rite. Remember coke tries to kill Pepsi, not Shasta.

Android devices survive the test: Oh yeah, awesome! Cool, great!
Apple devices survive: BS! Lies! Nonsense!
Fanboys, fanboys everywhere... :)

Very interesting, wasn't expecting that and have to give it props!

Now we can't call it iFragile anymore, lol! But yeah, as she said, that is a really tough iPad! :)
12. Yummy (Posts: 117; Member since: 28 Mar 2012)
Well yes there have been certain occurrences when you drop an apple product about a few inches of the floor and it breaks, but it all depends on how you treat your devices, and anyone can make easy hype on a product.

Cool vid, thanks for posting. Nothing in the test doesn't seem too unreal (depending on where you live).

i really want to see if she dropped a nokia 3310 on an iPad. It will be pulverized.

this woman clearly doesn't know how to drop an ipad or any other smartphone/tablet. Ask the guys who had to suffer, they'll know how to really test a smartphone/tablet
