When it comes to foldable devices, Apple is running far behind its competitors like Samsung, Google, OnePlus, and others. Over the past few years, the company has been building its plans for a foldable device, but reportedly the displays are not up to its required standards. While Apple is aiming to bring sleek and crease-free foldable devices to the market with the iPhone or iPad, a new report has come forward that claims that the tech giant is aiming to bring a 20.2-inch or an 18.8-inch foldable MacBook by 2026.

According to Apple supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo's report, Apple is planning to develop a 20.2-inch or an 18.8-inch foldable screen for MacBook. It is reported that LG will conduct the mass production of foldable displays for MacBooks by the fourth quarter of 2025. However, Apple’s aim is to bring technology for a foldable screen which is "as crease-free as possible." Kuo highlighted that bringing such a display to the market would require expensive components which may increase the cost of the foldable MacBook to match the price of a Vision Pro headset, nearly around $3499.
