Last week, an interesting rumor hinted that Apple might try to use foldable display technology to create a 20-inch all-display foldable MacBook laptop. Although we cannot say for sure if this report is true, it is now confirmed by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman in his latest Power On newsletter.
Gurman’s track record of Apple-related rumors has been pretty outstanding so far, so there’s a chance the rumors could be true. According to Gurman, he claims he was told Apple had been researching such a hybrid device and that it had actually been in development for the past several years.
However, he concludes by saying that it’s unclear if the device will ever see the light of day. To be fair to the reports, we imagine that many companies like Apple are exploring all sorts of products and concepts, but how many of those ideas actually translate into viable products is another story entirely.
That being said, it’ll be interesting to see how Apple turns it around if it ever gets released. This is because Apple has stated over the years that they have no interest in touchscreen Macs. In 2020, Apple said they weren’t “distantly considering” it, so we’re still a little skeptical about those claims, but who knows, maybe the use of foldable display tech could have changed Apple’s mind.
