Apple Foldable iPad release date, price, features, and news
In the following paragraphs we have compiled everything there is to know about Apple’s first foldable device. Naturally, given that this foldable iPad is likely still in its very early stages of development, all rumors and leaks should be taken with a grain of salt.
Additionally, we will be updating this page as soon as any major developments are brought to light. So, without further ado, let’s get right to it.
Latest Foldable iPad leaks
Foldable iPad release date
Given that we are talking about a first-generation product, there is no past precedent on which we can base our prediction. Furthermore, at the moment, most industry insiders are also sharing contradictory bits of information.
Foldable iPad price
Pricing is always a point of contention with Apple products and this time will likely be no difference. Foldables in general tend to be very expensive, as are the high-end iPads. Therefore, we expect the foldable iPad to be a very premium device, with an ostentatious price tag.
At this point, no concrete number has been cited, but we expect Apple’s foldable to cost well-above $3000, in light of how devices like the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold are priced.
Foldable iPad camera
Historically, the camera has never been the iPad’s strong suit. This is unlikely to change with the foldable iPad and that is why, in all probability, we will know nothing about the latter’s camera until the very release. Should any information surface, we will be adding it accordingly.
Foldable iPad storage
It is common knowledge that Apple is notoriously stingy when it comes to storage. Currently, even the most premium iPads feature just 128GB of internal storage at base. While we have no information on the storage of the foldable iPad, Apple is a creature of habit, and we do not expect any major increases in that department.
Foldable iPad design
Foldable iPad display
As we previously mentioned, according to multiple reports, Apple will most likely be using a 20-inch ‘hybrid’ OLED panel for the first foldable iPad. The difference between a normal OLED panel, and a ‘hybrid’ one is that the latter is not susceptible to ‘crumpling’.
Foldable iPad battery
Currently, we know nothing about the battery of the Apple foldable iPad. Given the purported footprint of the device, it could theoretically feature a battery as big as the ones found on the MacBook. This is, however, purely in the realm of speculation.
Foldable iPad features and software
Unfortunately, we still have no idea what type of software the foldable iPad would run. It would be interesting to see if the latter leans more towards iPadOS or MacOS, given the device’s status as a hybrid.
Should I wait for the Foldable iPad?
As exciting as a foldable iPad might seem, there is a good chance that such a device might not see the light of day for quite a while – or ever, for the matter. Additionally, in light of the fact that it will be a first-generation device (which are notoriously problematic) and that it will likely cost an outrageous amount of money, we simply cannot recommend waiting for a foldable iPad.
