Apple could have a foldable iPad/MacBook crossover in the works, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reported Sunday. The rumored hybrid device was previously mentioned by analyst Ross Young of Display Supply Chain Consultants, who speculated it would sport a 20-inch screen. 

Gurman added to speculation about the dual-screen device, suggesting that the foldable would include a virtual, touchscreen keyboard on one side. The device is said to have a target release date of 2026. 

Aside from this rumored hybrid, Apple is expected to launch new products this year. They likely include an iPhone SE 3 and iPhone 14, as well as updated iPads and MacBooks

Apple didn’t immediately respond to CNET’s request for comment.
