Apple Expected to Debut 20.3-Inch Foldable MacBook by 2027, Says Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo

March 07, 2024 – Renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of TF International Securities has revealed today that Apple is expected to introduce a 20.3-inch foldable MacBook by 2027. This announcement comes amidst growing speculation about the tech giant’s plans for foldable devices.

In recent weeks, Kuo has received numerous inquiries about whether Apple intends to mass-produce foldable iPhones or iPads in 2025 or 2026. However, according to his latest research, “The only foldable product that Apple has a clear development schedule for now is the MacBook equipped with a roughly 20.3-inch display, which is expected to enter mass production in 2027.”

This information aligns with previous reports from DigiTimes, which stated that Apple has been working on its first foldable device for at least five years. The publication noted that the device would be a “larger format” product, ruling out the possibility of a foldable iPhone and pointing towards a tablet or laptop instead.

Meanwhile, Apple China recently unveiled new MacBook Air models with upgraded M3 chips, available in 13-inch and 15-inch sizes starting at 8,999 RMB. These new laptops retain the same sleek design and powerful features as their predecessors but boast improved performance thanks to the latest M3 chip. This makes them the most powerful Air laptops in Apple’s history and the first ultra-thin notebooks in the industry to feature a 3nm chip.

Despite the impressive upgrades, some customers have expressed disappointment with the base model’s 8GB of RAM, which they feel is insufficient for modern computing needs. Many have taken to social media to voice their concerns, joking that Apple’s memory is more expensive than gold.
