Apple is reportedly releasing a foldable MacBook after the announcement of a foldable iPhone.

This revelation follows Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo's prediction that a MacBook with a foldable screen that measures either 18.8 inches or 20.2 inches may be released in 2026, according to Techopedia.

A virtual keyboard could be included with the all-screen design of the foldable MacBook. The design details are still pending confirmation. Even yet, the 18.8-inch MacBook's folded dimensions would resemble those of a typical 13- or 14-inch laptop.

Although Apple wants to make a foldable screen that is as seamless as possible, Kuo speculates in a Medium article that this decision would result in a price tag close to that of Apple's Vision Pro headset.

At launch, the price was $3,500. Kuo continues by stating that the M5 chip, which is purportedly a processor that Apple is developing, is anticipated to power the foldable MacBook.

While Ross Young, an expert in the display sector, believes the foldable MacBook would have an 18.76-inch screen rather than a 20.25-inch one because of cost concerns, Kuo and Uber Media's article on X alludes to a potential 20-inch screen. He explained this in a post that subscribed X users could only access.
