Video: iPad glass break test (spoiler: iPad 2 thinner & stronger)

When iPad 2 came out iFixIt discovered that the glass covering the LCD touchscreen was 27 percent thinner than the glass on iPad 1.

  • iPad 1:lcd = 3.2 mmglass = .85 mm
  • iPad 2:lcd = 2.4 mmglass = .62 mm
While it would be natural to assume that iPad 2’s thinner glass would be more fragile that its predecessor, iFixYouri tested both in this video and determined that iPad 2 glass is just as strong as iPad 1 glass “because it is a bit more flexible has more bending tolerances.”
