Foldable iPad? Forget those rumors. In a series of tweets display analyst Ross Young says that Apple is developing a 20.5-inch foldable notebook that could be released as soon as 2025.
From the tweets: Have heard about a 20.5” foldable notebook for 2025, but nothing about a foldable iPad for 2024. Maybe this is just good PR for the hinge company …. Display supply chain calls it a notebook, but not sure what software it will run.
This isn’t Ross’ first claim that Apple is working on a foldable laptop. In February 2022, he said a foldable laptop could form a new product category. If it arrives, it could be a dual-use product: able to work as a notebook with a full-size on-screen keyboard when folded and as a monitor when unfolded and used with an external keyboard. The foldable could also allow for 4K resolutions or higher at the size Apple is investigating, Young added.
