A hybrid of MacBook and iPad with folding screen for 2026

Folding screens have more uses than mobile phones, and Apple could already be working on a prototype that would be a hybrid of MacBook and iPad with folding screen and a total size of 20″.

First it was an analyst, Ross Young, and now it is Mark Gurman who seems to confirm this news. Apple could already be working on a new product with a folding screen. And we're not talking about an iPhone, but a MacBook, or rather a MacBook/iPad hybrid that fully unfolded it would be 20 inches in size, and could function as a laptop when folded, and as a tablet when fully open, or even as an external monitor.

With these little data, Antonio De Rosa has created this video that shows what this new product could be for him, which would break with several red lines marked by Apple: an iPad/MacBook hybrid, or a Mac with a touch screen. As can be seen in the video, while half of the device is 995 screen, the other half has 1/3 occupied by a trackpad, and the remaining 2/3 screen. These 2/3 would become a touch keyboard to be able to use the device as a MacBook, with a design very similar to that of the current models but with the difference that instead of a mechanical keyboard I would use an on-screen keyboard, something that many of us do not finish convincing.

The future of this device is still uncertain. It would be a prototype still in very early stages of its development that could never see the light of day, or undergo important modifications that would make it look very little like what we imagine right now. The estimates of analysts and Gurman is that, if you see this device in the real world, it would not be until at least 2026, perhaps accompanying the presentation of the definitive Apple Glasses and the Apple Car.
