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.

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!
