Apple plans 20-inch foldable MacBook while delaying

(Pocket-lint) – A reliable source who tends to accurately guess Apple’s plans year after year has suggested the Cupertino company is exploring a foldable MacBook while delaying the release of a foldable iPhone.

Ross Young, analyst for Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), tends to report on all things supply chain – as does fellow analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Both are very reliable sources of information about Apple’s product pipeline. Last year, Young was the first to report that 2021 MacBook Pro updates would feature mini-LED displays with ProMotion.

Now, based on conversations with his supply chain sources, Young has revealed that the DSCC has postponed its expectations for a foldable iPhone to 2025. This is a two-year adjustment from the timeline of previously reported launch in 2023. Young noted in his report that Apple “seems to be in no rush” to enter the foldable smartphone market anytime soon.

Interestingly, Young said Apple is investigating a foldable laptop instead – maybe even a model with a large 20-inch screen. This so-called foldable MacBook is described as a “dual-purpose product, a laptop with a full-size keyboard when folded and for use as a monitor when unfolded and used with an external keyboard.” It can even support 4K UHD.

The timeline for the 20-inch foldable is likely later than 2025, possibly 2026 or 2027. Apple is reportedly talking to suppliers, but the product is still years away.
