There have been reports that Apple is working on developing a foldable device that could be larger than a smartphone. According to a DigiTimes report citing a Taiwan-based supply chain source, the purported foldable device could come in laptop or tablet form. The iPhone maker has reportedly been developing the foldable device for at least five years, and the company is expected to decide on the device’s design before it begins manufacturing.

According to a report via MacRumors, the Cupertino company is working on a “bigger device” cap that could be released in the form of the aforementioned device instead of a foldable iPhone. To this end, the company is known to have entrusted the development of parts for foldable devices, including the hinge, to engineers from the Vision Pro team.

If Apple does launch a foldable device in the next few years (reports suggest it’s unlikely to launch before 2025), it will likely compete with products from Samsung, Oppo, Google, Huawei, and Xiaomi. These are just some of the companies that already have foldable devices available for consumers to purchase today.

Earlier this month, Chinese information provider ‘Fixed Focus Digital’ (Chinese translation) claimed that Apple had halted development of devices with foldable screens due to failure to obtain satisfactory results in screen tests, and that the iPhone maker had purchased several units. . It is a process of disassembling competitors’ foldable smartphones while ‘increasing the speed of research and development’.

The report contradicts these claims, saying that work on foldable phones has not stopped and that the company is developing more than one foldable device, with multiple departments responsible for developing each product. Apple has yet to announce any plans to launch a foldable smartphone in the coming months or years.
