According to a recent report by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is expected to launch a foldable iPad in 2024. According to Kuo, the next iPad will not be released this year, and mass manufacturing of the new iPad Mini will start in Q1 of 2024.

These iPads will be manufactured by Anjie Technology and will contain a carbon fiber kickstand at their back.

Apple will “continue benefiting from the growing trends of foldable devices, equipped with kickstands in the future,” said Kuo.


It’s likely that the kickstand Kuo mentioned will be fixed in the iPad case since foldables can easily stand without the need for a kickstand. On the other hand, the foldable iPad might not be as stable and need a kickstand at its back for support.

While the tech giant is currently experiencing a 15 per cent decline in tablet shipments, analysts believe that the release of the first foldable iPad will be a big break for the company.

The bigger displays and OLED panels of the new iPad Pro tablets, which were also introduced, are likely to make them broader for hand usage.

A foldable tablet can significantly improve portability because it can be difficult to carry usual tablets because they often do not fit in pockets. Apple users will soon be able to carry their iPads with ease thanks to the folding iPad.
