According to China’s Economic Daily News, specialist researcher Jeff Lin thinks that the product will have a screen the size of a MacBook when folded out and is being designed to compete with dual screen Microsoft products.
Lin detailed how the folding iPad would affect the supply chain in a recent report but did not state the names of sources or how he knows one is being made.
The potential iPad isn’t described in great detail apart from the fact it will fold and be 5G compatible.
However, Lin does speculate that it would have one of Apple’s A-series processors.

Apple has not revealed any details about a folding iPad so we’ll have to wait until the next launch to see if these rumours could be true.
Experts think Apple is working on a folding iPhone as the company has filed patents describing the idea.
A 5G iPhone is also expected to be announced with a 2020 release date.
