Foldable iPad Now in ‘Intensive Development,’ Could Be Announced as Soon as Late 2024

Apple’s rumored foldable iPad is now in “intensive development” and could be announced as soon as late 2024, DigiTimes reports.

In a paywalled report that cites supply chain sources, ‌DigiTimes‌ outlines how Apple is now working with suppliers on foldable ‌iPad‌ development, ahead of small-scale production toward the end of 2024. The Taiwanese publication believes that this indicates Apple could announce the device in late 2024 or early 2025 if progress remains steady.

Apple has apparently been working on foldable products for four years and continuously made design changes in this time. The company has reportedly not yet finalized the design of the foldable ‌iPad‌.

A main issue is said to be the device’s panel and hinges, with Apple being particularly concerned about the display creasing. The company is reportedly looking to Samsung and LG to provide a display that mitigates the creasing effect using mechanical design solutions.
