Kuo has written that the company may not release any new iPad in the next 9-12 months as "the iPad mini refresh is more likely to begin mass production" in the first quarter of 2024.
To recall, in October 2022, it was rumoured that the company has been working and planning to launch its first foldable iPad instead of iPhone in 2024. And people who have been following Samsung and LG fodable devices, have been expecting for a fodable iPhone for a while, but the tech giant has given no statement on having the device under consideration.
