  • A new report suggests Apple is having troubles with its foldable iPhone (or iPad; no one really knows for sure what it will be).
  • Allegedly, Apple has pushed back the launch of this foldable device to early 2027.
  • Additionally, the report suggests Apple may have moved engineers from the Vision Pro team to the foldable team.

Although Samsung led the way in the foldable phone market, many people in the tech industry won’t take foldables seriously until Apple enters the fray. Now, a new report suggests that Apple is struggling to get its foldable device off the ground and possibly has delayed it until 2027.

Apple’s foldable iPhone or iPad was reported to be scheduled for the last half of 2026. Now, though, a report from Korea’s Alpha Biz (via Digitimes) suggests the first half of 2027 is the goal date. According to the report, Apple is struggling with the crease created by the foldable display, something all foldable phones (so far) have had to various degrees.
