Apple to launch a folding version of iPad in 2024, instead of iPhone

The most reputed tech company Apple is reportedly planning to roll out a foldable device in 2024 instead of iPhone. Smartphone OEMs such as Xiaomi, Oppo, Samsung and Vivo have all been launching foldable versions of their flagship smartphones. On the flip side, Microsoft’s Surface Duo comes closest to the iPad mini when used in its unfolded form. If the analyst’s speculations are correct, the company may take inspiration from them.

We can also understand that Apple’s foldable might run on iPadOS instead of iOS. The company may also find options for creating a custom OS for this form factor, similar to Google’s tailored Android 12L for foldable and tablets. The head of research at CCS insight, Ben Wood said, “Right now it doesn’t make sense for Apple to make a foldable iPhone. We think they will shun that trend and probably dip a toe in the water with a foldable iPad.”

The company’s partnership with Qualcomm will reportedly expire in 2023. If true, this will mark another major shift in Apple’s product strategy. Apple started producing custom silicone chips for its laptops and desktops after the end of its partnership with Intel.
