New folding iPad and refreshed iPad mini 7 now in 2024, says Kuo

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suspects there will be no new iPads in 2023, and that the expected folding iPad will be released in 2024 with a carbon fiber stand.

“There may not be new iPad products in the next 9-12 months (the new iPad mini is more likely to be mass-produced in 1Q24),” he says (in translation), “so I am conservative about iPad shipments in 2023, and the shipments are expected to decline by 10-15% YoY.”

“However, I am looking forward to the folding iPad in 2024, and expect this product to benefit shipments and improve the product mix,” he continues.

“My latest research indicates that the foldable iPad will come with a carbon fiber stand,” says Kuo, “which would make the stand lighter and more durable.”
