It looks like Apple decided to experiment with one of their very old products.
According to Bloomberg, the company is developing something similar to the iPad, but for other tasks. The new form factor product will be a tablet, but not for use on the couch or on the road. The device will need to be mounted on the wall, and its task is to control the smart home.
In general, this will be the iPad, only slightly modified. The source says that it will be based on the younger model of the Apple tablet. Perhaps, technically, it will generally be a complete copy of the base iPad, just in a slightly different case and with a different software shell.
In addition to managing a smart home, the novelty will allow you to make video calls and watch videos. It is likely that such a tablet will support the Matter standard, as the new HomePod column supports it.
Carbon fiber foldable iPad coming next year
It looks like Apple will indeed release a foldable iPad relatively soon. Tianfeng International analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the company is working on a tablet with a completely new design.
In addition to being a foldable iPad, meaning it will have a flexible display, the device will also offer a carbon fiber stand. It is worth noting here that a stand for tablets usually means a separate accessory, but in this case, perhaps, we are talking about part of the main structure, since in a partially folded state, the tablet should normally stand on the surface and without any third-party stands.
Such a tablet is supposedly due out next year, and Kuo expects its release to have a positive impact on Apple tablet sales. At the same time, other new iPads may not come out at all in the next 9-12 months.
