Rumors of a folding iPhone are intensifying and going in all directions. While smartphones capable of folding are increasingly popular among manufacturers, with Samsung in the lead, it is time for Apple to take an interest in them too. But the Cupertino company is taking its time.

While a new rumor indicates that Apple has suspended its folding iPhone project, the time to find a suitable screen, another rumor from the corridor seems to want to give hope to fans from the manufacturer. But you'll have to be very patient before discovering the folding iPhone.

No folding iPhone before 2026

As is often the case, Apple prefers to let competitors struggle before arriving on the market with a flawless product that will make the hearts of its aficionados beat faster. The Apple brand does not rush and everyone knows that. Currently, folding smartphones have two big flaws: their price, which is still too high, and their thickness which can be a barrier for many users.

For several years, Samsung has been trying as best it can to democratize folding smartphones. Recently, several manufacturers have given in to the lure of these original and atypical models. But Apple is still missing. Officially, nothing suggests that the Cupertino company will (finally) start folding smartphones. But there are many rumors in the corridors.

According to a new rumor, the first folding iPhone will not be released before September 2026. Yes, we will therefore have to prove patience. Source is from Alpha Economy, a Korean media specializing in tech. Nothing is official, so you have to take this new information with a grain of salt. But everything suggests that Apple is waiting for the release of its iPhone 18 to present its very first folding iPhone. We would therefore have to wait for the traditional keynote for the start of the 2026 school year. In the meantime, Samsung will have had time to present, normally, its Galaxy Z Fold6 and Z Flip6 but also its Galaxy Z Fold7 and Z Flip7… And its Galaxy Z Fold8 and Z Flip8 .

According to Alpha Economy, Apple reportedly aims to sell 50 million units of its future folding smartphone. To give you an idea of ​​the market, folding smartphones sold 7 million units, all brands combined, in the third quarter of 2023. While Samsung promises a (finally) more affordable model, smartphone sales figures folding could well take off.

To carry out this time-consuming project, a source claims that Apple has transferred a certain number of people who were previously working on its just-released Vision Pro. All we have to do is wait for the Cupertino company to officially tell us more.
