Each fresh leak reveals a different perspective on Apple’s strategy for folding gadgets, suggesting that the company may be moving into a new stage of its product selection.
Regarding Apple‘s most recent product development, a foldable notebook with a 20.5-inch display, a fresh rumor has now surfaced. Ross Young, a display analyst, predicts that this cutting-edge product could debut as early as 2025.
A foldable all-screen notebook? Is Apple serious?
A foldable iPad was allegedly being developed by the tech giant for 2024, according to a recent rumor from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Young and Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman refuted this idea and claimed there are no indications that such a product will appear any time soon.
Since Young revealed a similar idea in February 2022, the speculations of an all-screen foldable MacBook have been making news for some time. According to him, Apple and suppliers were discussing the possibility of producing folding notebooks with displays that were roughly 20 inches in size.
According to the article, Apple is reportedly continuing to work on its foldable notebook concept, which would let users attach an external keyboard when unfolded or access a full-size on-screen keyboard when folded. An all-new product category for Apple is what this item represents according to Young.
This dual display design is anticipated to change the game compared to current Mac laptops, which have a single monitor together with a trackpad and keyboard. The exact positioning of the reported 20-inch Apple foldable, whether as a Mac, iPad, or perhaps a new product category, is still up in the air.
However, it appears that many sources concur that 2024 might be too soon for such cutting-edge technology. Since folding gadgets like the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4 are currently the norm in the market, it will be fascinating to see how the technology giant offers its new line of foldable goods in the future.
