A report from Business Korea says that Apple is working on a foldable Mac laptop that it will preview in 2025 and have for sale in 2026.
Young 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.
This isn’t the first rumor of a foldable MacBook. In February 2022 in a Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) report analyst Ross Young said Apple was considering a 20-inch foldable MacBook. He added that it and a foldable iPhone won’t arrive until 2025 — if not later.
As wild as the idea sounds, Apple has filed for multiple patents that hint at foldable Macs, iPhones, and iPads. Included among them are patent filing 10,579,105 and patent filing number 20190163233.
