Apple has not yet entered the lucrative foldable market, which Samsung already leads.

“A foldable iPhone would be too risky for Apple. First, it would have to be incredibly expensive not to take apart existing iPhones.” It is said that the company is not planning to launch a foldable iPhone, but instead plans to launch a foldable tablet or laptop.
The company has been exploring foldable technology for roughly 20-inch screens. As for pricing, the Apple foldable device is expected to hit stores with a price tag of around $2,500, Apple analysts suggested.
Samsung revealed that the foldable smartphone market is expected to grow by 80 percent by 2025. The company added that about 90 percent of foldable smartphone users are convinced to buy another foldable phone in the future.
