Apple Pushes Back Launch Of The Foldable iPhone

Apple enthusiasts eagerly anticipating the debut of Apple’s foldable devices will have to wait a bit longer. The tech giant’s venture into foldables, initially slated for late 2026, has encountered a delay. Reports suggest that Apple’s foldable iPhone, originally anticipated to accompany the iPhone 18 lineup, now faces a revised launch timeline. According to insider sources quoted by Korean publication Alpha Business, the release has been postponed to early 2027. This decision aims to afford Cupertino ample time for meticulous preparations, particularly concerning the supply and demand dynamics of the foldable display. Apple’s first foldable offering is speculated to be a sizable device, resembling a 7-8 inch tablet within the iPad family.

One of the key challenges in developing a foldable device lies in mitigating the crease where the display folds. Plus, Apple’s patented solution involves etching a groove into Ultra Thin Glass and concealing it with flexible polymers. Furthermore, this innovation aims to facilitate smoother bending of the display panel, resulting in a less conspicuous crease.

While the delay alters the original launch plans, Apple remains committed to ensuring a seamless and optimized foldable experience for consumers. Whether the foldable iPhone will have a standalone launch or coincide with other foldable offerings, such as the speculated foldable iPad, remains to be seen, especially considering potential delays in the latter’s development. Furthermore, tech enthusiasts and industry watchers eagerly await further updates on Apple’s foldable endeavors.
