In early January this year, it was reported that the foldable iPhone samples Apple sent to Foxconn had passed the first test, which is the assembly quality control inspection.

At that time, he expected that Apple could solve the technical problems in the production of the foldable iPhone this year, and was expected to launch a 7.5-inch to 8-inch foldable iPhone in two years’ time.
