Apple investigating 20-inch foldable Mac displays

The rumor: Apple is currently showing interest in a foldable Mac display much larger than any notebook they have created, according to Ross Young (100% accurate).

The report…

  • Apple is said to be in discussions with suppliers on a 20-inch foldable screen to be used in a foldable laptop
  • Young speculates that this device could create a new category for Apple…it could be a dual use product: a laptop with a full size keyboard when folded, and an external monitor when unfolded
  • The purported device could release as early as 2025, with a more reasonable estimate of 2026-2027

Ian’s Take: While this product is many years away, this is exciting. It looks like Apple has been saving their radical ideas for Apple the Apple Silicon transition, and I cannot wait to see what else they come up with.
