Apple is purportedly developing two form factors: a 20.25-inch model and an 18.8-inch variant. Folded, these measure 14 – 15 inches and 13 – 14 inches, respectively, making them more portable.

This is consistent with earlier rumors that a foldable tablet-like device could launch in late 2025 or early 2026.
