A few days ago, there were several reports of a foldable iPad that will be released in 2024. Famous journalist Mark Gurman immediately denied the rumor, and analyst Ross Young gave more details about the Apple calendar. According to that, The company’s first foldable device won’t be an iPad or iPhonebut a laptop.
That said, we’ve been hearing about a foldable iPhone and even a clamshell iPhone for a few years now. Other reports have even mentioned a foldable iPad for 2024, but there would be no tablets or foldable smartphones in Apple’s boxes right now.
