As per reports, tech giants, Apple is working on a foldable iPad/Mac hybrid with a 20-inch display. In his Power On newsletter, Apple tracker Mark Gurman described the new foldable iPad/Mac hybrid as a cross between an iPad and a MacBook.
The Upcoming Apple Foldable iPad/Mac Hybrid Will Have a Dual Screen Design
The upcoming Apple foldable iPad/Mac hybrid will have a “dual-screen” design and no physical keyboard or trackpad. The touch screen display of the foldable iPad/Mac hybrid will be employed to complete all tasks. Depending on the user’s requirements, the new foldable iPad/Mac hybrid can be used as an iPad or a MacBook.
Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultant, also stated that the company has been working hard for a long time to investigate foldable display technology onto a foldable iPad/Mac hybrid. Young previously mentioned Apple’s possible plans to develop a device with a large, folding screen.
The New Apple iPads Will Support UHD Resolution
He stated,” We are now showing Apple in our roadmap for foldable notebooks. We hear there is interest at the largest size yet, around 20’. This size could create a new category for Apple and would result in a true dual-use product, a notebook with a full-size keyboard when folded and for use as a monitor when not folded and used with an external keyboard. It may also allow for UHD/4K resolution or even higher at that size.”
According to both sources, Apple will most likely release the foldable iPad/Mac hybrid in 2026 or 2027. For the time being, the company is expected to launch a new iPad Air and Mac at its long-awaited spring event.
