Check Out This Apple Book Concept [Video]



Apple has never created a true transformer similar to the Surface Book. That is why ConceptsiPhone has created a new concept of a device with a large screen, metal frame and large full-size keyboard. Below you can take a look at the video showing this device.

The transformer called the Apple Book is supposed to work on macOS rather than iOS. It has a very strange design and frankly speaking I don’t think Apple will even make something similar to this transformer.

Here’s how the creators describe their concept:

New incredible 3D concept video that shows the 'Apple Book', new iDevice / Mac that combining iPad with MacBook!

What do you think about the transformer? Do you like it?
