Rumor: 20-inch foldable MacBook Pro might be coming


I’ve been pretty bullish on foldables, I do think they will become the norm at some point. Whether they are a niche idea or something actually useful is another conversation. Truth be told, I am still a fan of the traditional MacBook Pro style laptop, but Apple analyst and rumor monger, Ming-Chi Kuo, says Apple is working on something big.

The MacBook Pro could be getting a major overhaul by 2027, at least according to Kuo. We haven’t seen a foldable iPhone, yet, and the market may be pushing Apple to wait on a foldable iPhone. But laptops are a different matter. Here’s what Kuo had to say about the potential of a MacBook Pro with foldable display.

Kuo said on, X; “Recently, I’ve received many inquiries about whether Apple plans to mass-produce the foldable iPhone or iPad in 2025 or 2026. My latest survey indicates that currently, Apple’s only foldable product with a clear development schedule is the 20.3-inch MacBook, expected to enter mass production in 2027.”

A 20-inch laptop is huge and depending on the internals and cooling requirements, the chassis could also be huge. Though, Apple’s silicon runs very efficiently with minimal cooling needed, and that’s probably where they will be able to shave weight and size off. The biggest display Apple has ever put on a laptop was the old 17″ MacBook Pro that was killed off in 2012. Currently, the biggest display on a Mac is 16.3″ and with small bezels and reduced chassis, it really feels like a 15″ from a few years ago, in size.

According to MacRumors; Kuo is the third source to mention the possibility of a 20-inch MacBook, alongside display industry analyst Ross Young and Korean website The Elec.

Kuo’s remark concerning the development schedule of foldables at Apple is also curious. This seems to point to no foldable smartphone or tablet development, with Apple concentrating its efforts on the laptop. This should be interesting.
