A new report says Apple is working with LG Display to design a foldable OLED tablet for both iPad and MacBook.
From The Elec:
Meanwhile, the company is also collaborating with Apple to develop another foldable OLED panel.
The panel is being designed for tablets and notebooks with ultra-thin glass as the cover window instead of polyimide.
The report doesn’t offer any further details about what size of device Apple might be working on, or any reference to a timeframe. However, this is not the first time we’ve heard of Apple working on potential foldable devices, both tablets and notebooks. From DSCC’s Ross Young:
On the other hand, we are now showing Apple in our roadmap for foldable notebooks. We hear there is interest at the largest size yet, around 20.x”. 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. The time frame is likely later than 2025 though, it could be 2026 or 2027.
