It could be another three years before we see the launch of Apple's first foldable iPhone.

Korean publication Alpha Biz reports that Apple has pushed back the launch of the foldable iPhone from Q4 2026 to Q1 2027. For major component suppliers, they are still working to deliver the orders as per the original schedule. 

It is also rumoured that Apple employees who have worked on the Vision Pro have been redeployed to work on the foldable iPhone project. That said, we are still years out and things could still change. 

Earlier this month, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo shared that the only foldable product with "a clear development schedule" in Apple's pipeline is a 20.3-inch MacBook, which is expected to start mass production in 2027. 

The Information wrote in February that Apple is currently working on at least two "active prototypes" that look like the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip.

Samsung Display and LG Display are sending test samples of 7-inch and 8-inch foldable panels to Apple according to TheElec. There are also reports of a foldable iPad in "intensive development".
