Notably, this is not the first case. Even previous iPad models have failed the bend test, including last year's 10.5-inch iPad Pro. However, that particular model, as seen in this video, required more effort than the latest one.
Remember: The iPads aren't meant to be indestructible
The video indicates iPad Pro can bend pretty easily, but considering the thinner profile of this device and the fact that it is not meant to be indestructible, it is important to keep it away from bending situations.
In case you're still worried, go for a case for additional protection.
