Furthermore, Komiya also revealed that Apple really wants to surprise with its first foldable device. For this, the company plans to develop a foldable device that will not use hinges. On the contrary, the two panels would be connected to each other without any problem. Another claim from the source is that the foldable iPad screen will use the front camera technology built directly into the screen.
Under the hood, it is claimed that the product will be powered by a future Apple A-series chipset. It will be manufactured in an efficient 3nm process. According to Komiya, it will be the Bionic A17 or A16X processor that will arrive in the future.
