As reported by analysts IHS, Markit, Apple is working on a iPad project with foldable design. The future tablet will have a flexible display that can be folded in half to naturally reduce the size of the device and, instead of carrying a separate briefcase, place it in a small handbag or even inside pocket of his jacket. This option may be even more practical than the 4-inch smartphone set to 8 inches.
Unfortunately, information about the project folding tablet not so much. Even while it is not known what form factor Apple will choose for future trends: will it be decomposed in the manner of a Fold or Galaxy Huawei Mate X. But we know that the future of “the pill” I want to equip a full 5G modem, which will provide the owner with high-speed Internet access. However, given the complexity of the design, it can be assumed that the light she sees is that in a year.
