Analyst firm CCS Insight said on Tuesday,Apple could launch an iPad with a foldable screen in 2024and expects the tech giant to start experimenting with foldable technology soon.
CCS Insight released its annual forecast report on Tuesday, with forecasts for future products and trends. In an interview with CNBC, CCS Insight predicted that Apple would launch a foldable iPad within two years, rather than a foldable iPhone first. That’s different from what other companies are doing, with phone makers like Samsung launching first with foldable phones.
“Right now, it doesn’t make sense for Apple to make a foldable iPhone. We think they’ll steer clear of this trend and maybe try a foldable iPad,” Ben Wood, research director at CCS Insight, said in an interview. For Apple, the foldable iPhone is extremely risky. First, it has to be very expensive to not cannibalize sales of existing iPhone models.”
According to Wood, the price of the foldable iPhone is likely to be around US$2,500 (about RM11,793). In comparison, Apple’s most expensive iPhone 14 Pro Max currently costs about $1,599 (about RM7,543). He also said that if there were any technical problems with Apple’s foldable phones, critics would be “crazy” for them.
