Apple is predicted to launch their foldable phones into the market by around 2025-2026. To create a foldable phone, Apple needs to make the device as thin as the current iPhones in the market. Additionally, battery size is another issue of concern as foldable phones usually face some drawbacks when it comes to battery capacity. Engineers have struggled to find a compatible way to make foldable phones work. Apple is currently testing different sizes for the foldable phone. Most importantly, Apple is letting the foldable phone market mature more before launching their own foldable iPhone. Apple makes this move to try maximizing their device’s benefits to give themselves an edge during competition. Although Samsung has already launched their own foldable phone, there are some concerns about excessive dust, inefficient hinges, and fragility.

It is highly anticipated that Apple will launch their own foldable iPhone within the next few years. Obviously, there exist some issues with the use of a foldable phone as concerns about design and size remain prevalent. Creating a foldable phone is an unprecedented move that can potentially revolutionize phones. Nevertheless, Apple has a long way to go in enhancing their foldable iPhone as they need to ensure the size and convenience fits well for the consumer audience. Apple has made a smart move in waiting to release this unique device as a way to test how far and beneficial they can tailor their product to the general public.
