Apple is now reportedly in talks with a supplier in Asia for parts for two foldable iPhone models that differ in size. However, foldable iPhones are more likely to be canceled if they don't meet Apple's standards or the company's requirements.

Now, these plans for a foldable iPhone have resurfaced, with the company planning a 7-inch foldable. We can expect Apple to bring something new to the existing market. For now, we can only wait for updates or information about the plans made by Apple.
