 iPad foldable display

According to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman report, Apple is actively working on iPad foldables. However, the company is currently struggling to get rid of the crease which appears on the display when we fold the device. Additionally, Gurman highlighted that Apple may kill their plans for bringing the foldable device if it was not able to provide a crease-free foldable display. While the challenge of developing the display persists, Apple still has a huge amount of time to address the problem, as we will not see the iPad foldable device until 2027.
