Apple could be closer than expected to launching a foldable iPhone, according to The Information, citing a person with direct knowledge. The company is believed to be closer to launching a foldable iPad mini, but an iPhone foldable could be ready for stores as early as 2026 if it meets Apple’s strict standards. 

The company’s first foldable is expected to be in proportion with the Galaxy Z Flip 5 or Motorola Razr Plus, with a clamshell shape that makes it pocketable when folded. The company is said to be looking into a design that folds the screen outwards so the display is on the outside, but that concept has obvious durability drawbacks that Apple reportedly hasn’t been able to get around.

There are apparently two different foldable iPhone designs that are in the prototype stage. Of course, companies often produce working prototypes of products and concepts that will never be sold to the public. It is likely that Apple has created working iPhones that fold in the past. This time, the source seems confident that Apple is looking towards production, though the phone would not be on the calendar for this year or 2025.
