Joining the tread of foldable phones, the information reaching us is the progress of Apple working on a new foldable 5G-enabled iPad. Based on the development, the device is predicted to be launched in 2020.
This is still rumour as it has not been officially made known by the company. This rumour comes from London-based global information provider IHS Markit’s analyst Jeff Lin, who has claimed that Apple was quietly working on such a device.
According to 9to5Mac: “The product would apparently feature MacBook sized screens, which isn’t too much of a stretch given that the iPad Pro already tops out in a 12.9-inch size. However, it is easy to imagine how an iPad mini-sized product that could unfold to 13 or 15-inch screen would be compelling.”
Furthermore, the foldable iPad would also support 5G cellular radios for fast mobile Internet browsing. If so, this will be a chain break as none of the present Apple devices support 5G connectivity.
