iPad 2?s Glass 27% Thinner; But Still Stronger Than iPad 1
When folks at iFixit disassembled iPad 2, they had raised concerns over the thickness of the glass screen, which is 27% thinner than iPad 1. They felt that it could drastically reduce the durability of iPad 2, especially the glass’ resistance to shattering.
But a new test by folks at iFixYouri shows that iPad 2â€™s glass screen is in fact stronger than iPad 1 even though its thinner.
It turns out that the iPad 2 glass is just as strong as the original iPadâ€™s glass and because it is is a bit more flexible has more bending tolerances. To quote the guy not wearing gloves:
â€œThat glass was redonkulously strong!â€
