The foldable could also enable 4K resolutions or higher than the size Apple is investigating, Young added.

Young revealed a litany of specific information about Apple’s plans, such as the iPhone 13 Pro’s ProMotion display, the sixth-generation iPad mini’s screen size and bezels, mini screens -14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro LEDs with ProMotion, and more.
