Remember when we discovered that the iPad 2 glass was about 27% thinner than iPad 1?  The natural assumption was that the iPad 2 would be weaker than iPad 1 when it came to its glass front end.  The iPhone repair experts at iFixyouri wanted to test that theory…

It turns out that the iPad 2 glass is just as strong as the original iPad’s glass and because it is is a bit more flexible has more bending tolerances. To quote the guy not wearing gloves:

“That glass was redonkulously strong!”

There you have it.

The experiments at their Boston iPhone repair shop included multiple drop tests with various items.  Nothing broke the glass.
