Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-regarded analyst with a focus on Apple’s product developments, has shared insights indicating that Apple is on track to launch a groundbreaking 20-inch MacBook that will feature a foldable screen.

This announcement positions Apple at the forefront of technological innovation, considering the current landscape where the largest MacBook available is the 16-inch MacBook Pro, with the 17-inch model having been discontinued back in 2012.

According to Kuo’s revelations on the platform X (formerly Twitter), this foldable MacBook, sporting a 20.3-inch screen, is the only Apple product with a foldable design that has a “clear development schedule”, with expectations to enter mass production by 2027. However, detailed specifics about the design or features of this anticipated device remain under wraps.

This news aligns with previous reports from other sources, including display industry analyst Ross Young and Korean website The Elec, both of whom have hinted at the potential of a 20-inch MacBook. This collective speculation underscores a significant interest and buzz within the tech community regarding Apple’s ventures into foldable technology.

Kuo’s emphasis on this MacBook as Apple’s sole foldable product with a definitive timeline for development also suggests that rumors of foldable versions of the iPhone or iPad might not be followed by such products becoming available to customers in the near future.

This strategic focus on a foldable MacBook underscores Apple’s commitment to innovation within its laptop lineup, possibly setting a new standard for the industry in terms of screen size and adaptability.
