Are Key Apple Vision Pro Developers Working On The Foldable iPhone?

TECH NEWS – Apple has redirected developers to another product, but we’re hearing that development isn’t stopping.


Earlier, there were rumors that Apple had halted development of the foldable iPhone due to concerns about the display’s longevity. Now we hear that the U.S. tech giant is actively working on the device, which has even seen some of its key developers transferred from Apple’s Vision Pro team. The goal is a bit ambitious: Apple is said to be aiming to ship 50 million foldable iPhones…

An anonymous person, who is said to be familiar with Apple’s internal plans, told Alpha Biz that the Cupertino-based company is working on a foldable iPhone, which has even been given a projected release date. According to him, if there are no changes in the situation, the new iPhone model will be available for purchase sometime in September 2026, so the new format could hit the stores together with the iPhone 18.

Speaking of the Apple Vision Pro, we wrote the other day, based on Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, that we are about a year and a half away from the release of the newer model of the device. So it could be followed by the foldable iPhone, of which not one but two prototypes have been made, but the company is still concerned about its durability as well as its cost. (The Apple Vision Pro is more expensive, but that’s okay?)

By comparison, it’s really steep that Apple wants to see 50 million foldable iPhones in stores. These plans could quickly fall through if new obstacles arise during development. Given that Samsung has received a MIL-STD 810G rating from the U.S. Department of Defense for its 7-inch foldable display, Apple may not have to worry about this, but the question mark may be profit generation: how can the company sell this model expensively while charging a hefty premium for the iPhone 15 Pro Max?

This could make Apple’s situation even more interesting.
