iPad Torture Test at Always On

Culture
-- Okay everyone it's time for the most exciting and potentially most painful part of our show. The torture test C. Real life is hard on gadgets they get left in cars are dropped or spilled on her -- they get shoved in a purses with keys. All kinds of things can happen to an iPad or phone or a laptop. So we came up with a series of five tests to see whether these gadgets can stand up to real life. We have heat. Cold dropping and killing plus every gadget we'll get a wild card test based in part. On your feedback the first device to go through the got -- The new iPad. So we have an ice chest here. And yeah we used a little infrared thermometer to determine that -- 31 degrees. Now the iPad stated temperature range says it can safely use it down to 32. -- kind of want to see what happens if we push it just a little farther than left. You need a little iPad. The -- went off. And I hope not forever. We'll see what happens. Find out. How cold it is in here. 44 earned its promise and heat up already I'll tell you that back -- -- Apple it is tunnels leading anti -- American -- smiley face. 39 degrees. -- -- It's actually surprisingly. Responsive. But it seems like the biggest problem we have here that if anything it's just that the screen keeps -- -- A car parked outside and a hot day you can get up to a 120 -- -- 140 degrees Fahrenheit on the inside and our other -- lowest temperature is 150 degrees. So we're about to push our I've had to just above its documented limiting. We wrap the little guy in a towel to protect the metal. And we left it in for thirty minutes we just. Didn't really have a hard to keep that in London -- After thirty minutes we nervously rescued the iPad it didn't melt but you can see a small formation of condensation. We letter -- cool for another thirty minutes and it survived. Are at our third generation iPad has survived the cold tests and they -- test. Which is pretty impressive we're gonna continue the torture test dot -- today we find out if they can take a drop. On our way to see if it makes all the way to water. -- -- devised three drop zones for the new iPad the first is about eighteen inches which I'm estimating it's about the height of a bedside table and then assuming it survives. We're gonna knock it off this -- -- -- which seems likely if it's left on a table or if you're cooking with it in the kitchen. Finally assuming it survives that we'll drop it from. Standing height which on me is a little unfair -- now but you know like I can be -- -- okay let's get started with our eighteen instruct. But there was on the table it got knocked -- Hey. It's funny and has some crumbs -- -- -- cracks a good job we'll iPad. So is allowing. The glass is not crack -- RM and turn it off. Turn back time. Seems -- totally be functioning fine. That's. Okay -- cast just right now. I did it using it and then I just have a butter fingers night. Click fashion. I've had been officially survived the drop test. In fact I think I'm in worse shape than iPad it's. Now incredibly the new iPad has survived all of our drop tests which frankly. I was not expecting. But now we've devised a wild card test so I was thinking. -- thing that happens to my iPad a lot is that I -- other things on it so we have three items here. To -- the keys to their kind of the latest in fact I don't really. Could be worst tearing up. The driver of my father like 500 dollars it shifts. -- -- had been doing it connects up the phone. No big deal -- -- find. And I have pathetic and does an excellent -- Sony -- and I've -- are still fine and you know what that means I've -- moves on to the water around. And I'm gonna. Okay -- that's freaking out. It's doing things on the first thing you want to do. To get it out of the water and turn it off. Don't try to turn -- back time. Aluminum dry it here the key with any devices that once it -- what you need to give it time to drive before you try to power it back on. With a phone or something which we'll show you in future episodes you can put it in a bag of something -- try to dry it out. In this case the worst scenario probably is that water got inside the stock we can see it's -- come back on on its own. I'm gonna turn it off though and leave it alone for a couple days and make sure it still fine so far though parents say. This is one tough iPad. Tough. I officially declare the new iPad. The torture test survivor.
