Apple supposedly wants in on the folding-device game. According to IHS Markit analyst Jeff Lin’s sources, the company is planning a foldable iPad aimed at business users.
The device will reportedly feature a 12″ screen, which puts it in line with the current iPad Pro (12.9″). It is also said to include a 5G cellular radio.
A 5G foldable Apple product still sounds very much like a pipe dream, and realistically could be years away. Apple’s struggles over securing a solid 5G timeline for its iPhone line has been well-documented up to this point, and we aren’t expecting a 5G iPhone until late 2020. It seems likely that a mythical 5G folding iPad would not ship until 2021 or beyond.
