Apple works on a flexible iPad, it would arrive next year

Samsung leads the field of flexible devices with its Galaxy Fold series, but according to well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple has been working on several interesting projects for some time with which it hopes to break into that market, and one of the most interesting is the flexible iPad.

This new tablet from the apple giant would have as its main objective the improvement of productivity and workspace on a single screen. We still don’t have much information, but the jump to a folding screen would also reduce the size of that flexible iPad, since it could open and close like a book.

However, it is important to note that it has not yet been confirmed what type of fold Apple will use, and this could affect both its size and its usability. Personally, I am inclined to think that you will most likely go for the classic vertical foldwhich would be precisely what this book-type format would allow, with the flexible screen inside.

That new flexible iPad could also be released major design changesas well as new generation components more powerful than what we have seen in current models, and it should be compatible with an external keyboard and a support base, since this would allow it to be used in portable mode.

According to Kuo, the launch of the flexible iPad will take place sometime next year. The truth is that, although it is not confirmed, it makes sense, because for Apple it would be the least risky way to start its journey in the world of flexible devices. On the other hand, it would also allow it to generate greater interest in its iPad line, whose sales could fall between 10% and 15% this year.
