Apple has been rumoured to be working on a foldable device, which is expected to be an iPhone or iPad, and now, according to the latest report, Apple will launch the first foldable iPad in 2024.
We’ve heard a lot about Apple’s foldable device over the last year, but Apple has never confirmed anything about it, such as whether it will be an iPad or an iPhone, but now a detailed report has revealed some major details.
Apple may intend to release a foldable iPad before a foldable iPhone
According to a report from CCS Insight analysts that CNBC covers, Apple will enter the foldable device market with its foldable iPad two years from now. It will also serve as a practise run for the company to make foldable technology more immersive before releasing the first foldable iPhone, and the highest model is expected to cost $2,500 USD, according to the report.
Furthermore, display supply chain analyst Ross Young suggested earlier this year that Apple’s foldable iPad will have a 20-inch complete foldable, but about the launch, he mentioned that it would be released in 2025 or 2026, which appears less reliable. Another tipper, Ming-Chi Kuo, has also suggested that Apple’s first foldable device will be released in 2024, but he changed his prediction a year earlier.
CCS Insight’s analysts created this report after analysing all previous details on Apple’s foldable and leaks from reliable leakers, such as Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman.
In conclusion, we will first see the Apple Foldable iPad rather than the iPhone in 2024, which makes more sense given that many elite brands, such as Samsung, are already producing good foldable smartphones. If Apple takes longer, the foldable technology will mean less because many smartphone companies will have done it within the next three years, making consumers less interested. Furthermore, Apple may have chosen LG for this foldable display. Separately, Google has been rumoured to be working on a foldable device, most likely a Pixel smartphone.
