Apple to Launch Foldable iPad in 2024, Analyst Claims

Apple plans to launch its first foldable in the form of a new iPad in 2024, analysts at CCS Insight claim.

Foldable iPhone 2023 Feature Blue
According to the report, Apple plans to treat the ‌iPad‌ as a way to widely test foldable technology before adopting it on the iPhone. Ben Wood, CCS Insight's Chief Analyst, said in an interview with CNBC that it "doesn't make sense for Apple to make a foldable ‌iPhone‌" in the current climate. "We think they will shun that trend and probably dip a toe in the water with a foldable ‌iPad‌," he added.

Apple is believed to be testing a foldable device with a display around 20-inches in size, according to reliable display analyst Ross Young, who expects the device to hit the market in 2026 or 2027. Foldable devices have slowly grown in popularity in recent years, with companies like Samsung having released multiple foldable devices.

Apple is said to be working with LG to create an ultra-thin cover glass that could be used on the company's future foldable products. The exact form factor of the foldable ‌iPad‌, including whether it would be a hybrid between an ‌iPhone‌ and an ‌iPad‌, remains unknown.

A foldable iPad Mini seems to be a great idea. Hopefully, there won’t be comments like, “you're folding it wrong”.
We are one step closer to the future that was promised:

It will definitely fold ?. I just cannot see this as a long term trend.

A foldable, big ass tablet actually makes much more sense than what we have seen so far in the foldable space.

Say, a 18” iPad you can carry in a backpack.

Apple would hide the annoying crease with a "dynamic bridge"!
