The new foldable iPad will venture in the coming year, top Apple analyst Kuo states

January 31, 2023: Apple will slow the rate of iPad releases for the remainder of 2023 to release a foldable iPad by 2024, stated Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo wrote.

“I’m positive regarding the foldable iPad in 2024 and expect this new model will improve shipments and make better the product mix,” Kuo wrote on Twitter. Kuo’s prediction, with a report from analyst company CCS Insight, was that the Cupertino firm would launch a foldable iPad prior to a foldable iPhone.

Many manufacturers, including Lenovo and Samsung, make laptops or phones with complete-size foldable displays. Apple has shied away from taking advantage of OLED technology similarly. Rival Samsung has released many foldable phones, but Apple has maintained the shape of the iPhone since its launch.

“Right now, it does not mean for Apple to make an iPhone which can be folded. We think they will ignore that trend and put a toe in the water with a foldable iPad,” Ben Wood, chief of research at CCS Insight, stated

In 2021, Kuo was thinking of the release of an iPhone in 2024, the year he now expects a foldable iPad to launch instead.

Kuo expects a foldable iPad to feature a carbon fibre kickstand sourced from Chinese manufacturer Anjie Technology.

Kuo is the most prolific Apple analyst. The analyst has predicted several details on the iPhone SE 3, the 2021 MacBook Pro, and many iPad releases, which have been substantiated at launch. Most Lately, Kuo predicted a launch of Apple’s highly-anticipated mixed reality headset.
