Everyone has been talking about foldable phones, but have you ever thought about foldable tablets?
The IHS Markit analyst Jeff Lin Apple suggests that Apple is currently working on a new flagship iPad with a bunch of new features.
The upcoming iPad will reportedly support 5G, featuring a display similarly sized to a MacBook Pro (e.g. 13 inches or 15 inches if we consider the latest Pro lineup; the current iPad Pro is 11 and 12.9).
Identically to the previous iPads, the new device is also supposed to include an Apple-designed A-series chip, and according to Jeff Lin, it could be released as soon as next year.
Having that in mind, we should say that it is just a rumor for now, as Apple has not announced anything on the matter. In any case, if we consider the fact that the company has yet to reveal actual plans for a foldable or 5G phone, it’s not certain that an iPad with those features will be released soon.
Presently, Apple’s 9.7-inch iPad and 12.9-inch iPad Pro are two of users favorite tablets, with powerful A10 Fusion processors, long battery life and high-quality cameras, so a foldable 5G iPad would be a great addition to the lineup.
