Foldable phones have transitioned from being just another ‘fancy design concept’ to something practical. Samsung has already shown that with its third edition of the Samsung Z Fold series. But while almost every top brand has at least one foldable product in the market, Apple is missing in action. Now, a new report by DSCC analyst Ross Young suggests that we might have to wait until 2025 to get the first glimpse of the iPhone’s first foldable smartphone. This is way off the earlier proposed timelines of 2023 and 2024 by several reports.
The main reason for the delay is said to be Apple’s increased focus on a foldable MacBook. The report suggests that the foldable MacBook could be launched after the smartphones, possibly in 2026 or 2027.
As per popular Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the foldable iPhone could come with a display larger than that on the Galaxy Z Fold 3, possibly 8-inches. For context, this would be almost as large as the iPad Mini.
Apple’s plans for the design of the device has been tipped via some leaked patents that suggest the company might be looking beyond the standard clamshell design for its foldable iPhones.

Apart from the update on the foldable iPhones, Bloomberg‘s latest report by Mark Gurman hints at several new Mac launches with a new M2 chip this year. The report claims that the company is planning to unveil a redesigned MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, 24-inch iMac, and Mac Mini which will all be powered by the latest M2 chipset. The rumoured chipset will be an upgrade from the M1 chip and its successors, the M1 Pro and M1 Max.
The upcoming Macs are expected to be powered by three processors: M2, M1 Pro, M1 Max and an upgraded version of the M1 Max.
