The rumor: Apple has delayed their foldable iPhone to 2025 at the earliest, according to Ross Young (100% accurate).
- While Ross Young originally said that a foldable iPhone could launch in 2023 at the earliest…he is now changing his prediction to a tentative 2025
- Young states that Apple “Does not appear to be in a hurry to enter the foldable smartphone market,” and the device could be delayed even longer
Ian’s Take: I never expected Apple to release a foldable device in 2023; it is far too early. There are too many problems with foldable devices, such as reliability, scratch resistance, and of course, the crease. When bringing them to the scale that Apple would, it would be near impossible using current technology.
