Does the iPad Air 2 bend like the iPhone 6 Plus?

The iPad Air 2 is Apple's thinnest tablet at only 6.1mm thin, so does that make it susceptible to bending like the iPhone 6 Plus?

You have to remember that the original complaints (aka Bendgate) about the iPhone 6 Plus bending all had to do with people keeping the device in their pocket, and that Apple said that only 9 people actually contacted them about a bent iPhone. Yes, the iPhone 6 Plus was shown to bend when people tried to bend it, but that's like saying the iPhone will break when I slam it on concrete. Although we can't say for certain that the Apple's new tablet won't bend, it is safe to assume that your iPad Air 2 will be okay if you keep it out of your back pocket and avoid sitting on it.
