Apple is reportedly set to launch a foldable iPad with a carbon fiber kickstand in 2024 according to the famous Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. The foldable iPad is expected to come with a kickstand and it will come with carbon fiber material. Kuo predicts that this will definitely boost the iPad sales in the upcoming years.
Apple has been rumored to be working on a foldable iPad for some time according to different analysts in the industry including DSCC analyst Ross Young who said that Apple is testing a foldable iPad display around 20 inches in size, but expects the device to hit the market later, in 2026 or 2027.
Anjie Technology will be the new beneficiary of the all-new design foldable iPad. There may be no new iPad releases in the next 9-12 months as the iPad mini refresh is more likely to begin mass production in 1Q24.
