After flip phones exited the stage of the era, full-screen smartphones took over the entire mobile phone market. With the continuous advancement of technology, the form of smartphones has been constantly changing, such as the foldable smartphones which have been popular in recent years, becoming the focus of research and development for many smartphone manufacturers.

Foldable iPhone

Now, looking at the entire smartphone industry, almost all well-known smartphone manufacturers have launched their own foldable smartphones, except Apple’s foldable iPhone, which has always been in a “speculative” state.

Currently, the foldable screen market is mainly dominated by Samsung and Huawei, occupying over 80% of the global market share, and Apple’s entry is expected to change the existing market landscape.

Foldable iPhone Market

According to the latest news from the Economic Daily, Apple is accelerating the development of foldable screen technology, and the first product is expected to be launched in 2025, but the product form is not confirmed yet.

The report stated that Apple’s current iPhone sales have caused aesthetic fatigue among consumers, and the high-end market has been continuously impacted by foldable smartphones from Huawei and Samsung, making it urgent for Apple to release a foldable iPhone to consolidate its market position.

Foldable iPhone Development

Historically, the development of foldable smartphones has gone through several stages. Initially, the concept of foldable smartphones was proposed by Samsung at the 2013 CES, but it wasn’t until 2018 that the Chinese manufacturer Royole released the world’s first foldable smartphone – the FlexPai. Since then, Samsung, Huawei, Motorola, and other manufacturers have also successively launched their own foldable smartphones.

For Apple, it may be easy to release a foldable iPhone, but it might be difficult to release a foldable iPhone that satisfies both Apple and users ~

It is well known that Apple pays great attention to the quality of its products and the user experience. The existing foldable screen technology and materials seem to be difficult to meet Apple’s standards.

For example, there have been bloggers claiming that Samsung’s latest foldable panels “failed after a few days” in Apple’s strict internal testing, leading Apple to shelve the entire project. At least it will have to wait until it can develop a display screen that meets its high standards, including Apple’s dissatisfaction with the current hinge supply in foldable screens.

Foldable Screen Quality

Whether Apple will release a foldable iPhone in 2025 remains unknown, but with the continuous optimization of foldable screen technology and the reduction of costs, foldable smartphones may become one of the mainstream forms of mobile phones.
