Apple Updates: Apple is going to launch Foldable iPhone!


Foldable iPhone:  According to a new investor note from Haitong International Securities analyst Jeff Pu in a recent report from 9to5Mac, Apple is accelerating work on its foldable devices, which includes a 20.3-inch MacBook and a foldable iPhone. The analyst also said that the 20.3-inch foldable device will be mass-produced and released in 2026 or 2027. Meanwhile, mass production of the foldable iPhone is expected to begin in late 2026.


The analyst said that Apple's foldable devices will be a new product series for the company targeting the "ultra-high-end market". Pu also said that Apple is exploring two screen sizes for its new foldable iPhones, including 7.9-inch and 8.3-inch. 

Earlier, analyst Ming-Chi-Kuo also reported that Apple is working on a 20.3-inch foldable MacBook, but said that the device may not be released until 2027. Bloomberg's Mark Garneman also recently claimed that Apple is "exploring a dual-screen, foldable MacBook/iPad hybrid". 

Additionally, a recent report from Patently Apple revealed that Apple filed a patent with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) last October for a hinge that would be used in foldable devices. The patent shows that Apple's foldable could fold both inward and outward, offering greater mobility than any other mass-market product. However, the patent is intentionally broad, meaning that the patented hinge can be applied to phones, laptops, tablets, or other portable electronics.

In other news, Apple is holding its 'Let Loose' event on May 7, where the company may bring some much-needed upgrades to its iPad line-up. The Tim Cook-led company may introduce its first M4 chipset with the iPad Pro variant, which can also be upgraded with an OLED display. Meanwhile, the iPad Air version may get a larger 12.9-inch screen, which was previously reserved for the Pro lineup.
