Many Apple’s patents indicate that the company’s engineers are working on possible options of folding not only iPhone but also iPad. Designers resource LetsGoDigital has created a new concept of foldable iPad based on several patents.
Concept foldable iPad based on the latest Apple patents. The device can be folded in half for use as a compact tablet with a narrow screen. This iPad design has been described in several patents.
According to the leak, Samsung has provided for testing of Apple kit folding displays. The Korean manufacturer has sent to Apple a 7.2-inch foldable display which is 0.1 inch smaller than the Galaxy Fold.
