Folding iPad rumored for 2024, before bendable iPhone

Apple is expected release a folding iPad before it ships a folding iPhone, with a bendable tablet likely to launch in 2024.

“Right now it doesn’t make sense for Apple to make a foldable iPhone,” said CCS Insight chief of research Ben Wood. “We think they will shun that trend and probably dip a toe in the water with a foldable iPad.”

Despite the risks, Wood says Apple has “no option but to react because the trend toward foldables is gathering momentum.” Going for a foldable iPad would be an educational release for Apple, since it would be able to learn how best to implement and scale the technology.

“They (Apple) have been shooting for this target for years,” said Wood. “They acquired the assets from Intel of the modem unit, they have been working hard to ramp that up, they are very keen to make sure they keep growing their control points they have.”
