Apple is unlikely to release a foldable iPhone before 2027, according to a report by Taiwanese research firm TrendForce. Currently, foldable phones make up only 1.5% of the smartphone market, but it’s projected to grow to 4.8% by 2028. Despite the delay, Apple’s strong market presence and loyal customer base could quickly make a foldable iPhone popular once it’s released. The company is still examining component specifications and performance, with a focus on minimizing creasing and ensuring reliability. Concerns about screen creasing impacting long-term durability and susceptibility to damage from debris continue to be a point of consideration for foldable devices.

Although we’ll have to wait a bit longer for Apple’s foldable iPhone, its eventual arrival could have a big impact on the smartphone industry. Stay tuned for updates!
