Prior to this, its competitors Samsung, Huawei, and others have already released foldable screen phones, and while Apple has yet to make a move, the market’s enthusiasm for this technology has already surged. Now, Apple clearly hopes to be the first to introduce this technology in the tablet market, further solidifying its leadership position in the global tablet market. According to insider information from the supply chain, Apple has been closely collaborating with suppliers on this foldable iPad since 2023. The design and functionality patents for this device were approved by the US Patent and Trademark Office in February of this year, further increasing people’s expectations for Apple’s upcoming foldable iPad. The patent application document shows a tablet computer with a foldable screen and a flexible hinge mechanism design, which can fold and unfold in different usage scenarios. Additionally, the design of this device is also very eye-catching, with a slim, attractive appearance and metal frame, giving it a very fashionable look. If Apple is able to successfully launch a foldable iPad, it will undoubtedly further enhance its position in the tablet market. At the same time, it will also be a major impact on the global tablet market, indicating that future tablet computers will evolve in a more innovative and diverse direction.
