In a series of tweets, the leaker noted that a foldable iPhone may not be releasing any time soon since Apple believes the foldable display technology is not advanced enough and there are still too many “compromises” to deal with. 

The iPhone maker is also said to be concerned about whether foldable smartphones will continue to be popular with consumers in the coming years. Apple wants to be sure that a foldable design isn’t a “regression from the current form factor of the iPhone ,” Dylandkt wrote.

While Dylandkt’s tweets suggest that Apple is still unsure about releasing a foldable smartphone, some other rumours have hinted that Apple could release a foldable iPhone as soon as 2023.
