Insider Leak Reveals Apple’s Future: iPhone SE 4, Foldable iPhone, and AR Glasses

We’ve heard many rumors about the iPhone SE 4, the iPhone that can fold, and the Apple AR glasses, and now a leaked plan has provided us with a better understanding of when we might see these devices get introduced.

The document, apparently from finance firm Samsung Securities, was leaked by well-known tipster @Tech_Reve (via Wccftech). It gives an outline of what’s coming from Apple for the next few years, up until 2027.

It’s in 2027 when we’ll receive the augmented reality glasses. We haven’t heard much about the specs in recent months, with the Apple Vision Pro receiving most of the attention in AR and VR (or mixed reality if you prefer). We will also get a more affordable Vision Pro sometime in 2026.

A foldable 20-inch iPad is expected to arrive in 2027, with the foldable 8-inch iPhone arriving a year earlier. That’s somewhat contrary to recent rumors that the foldable iPad would arrive first – though considering a foldable iPhone would be about the size of an iPad mini anyway, there may be some confusion over which product is which.

Upcoming

There’s also a mention of the long-rumored OLED MacBook in 2026, and then looking at next year, we have the iPhone SE 4 mentioned. That aligns with a rumor from last month that indicated an early 2025 launch for the mid-ranger – with a shift to a more modern design and an OLED display also being discussed.

As for the rest of this year, it appears very likely that we’ll get an 11-inch iPad Pro and a 12.9-inch iPad Pro, both with OLED screens. Most tipsters have anticipated a 2024 launch for these tablets, and they could appear any day now (though you might have to place your orders quickly for the 11-inch version).

The usual cautions about leaks and rumors apply: these dates might not be entirely accurate, and even if they are, Apple’s plans can always change. That being said, this plan does align nicely with other pieces of information that have leaked out.

If Apple indeed introduces new iPads soon, the next significant announcements to anticipate will be about iOS 18, artificial intelligence, and Apple’s other software. That will happen at WWDC (the Worldwide Developers Conference) 2024, occurring sometime in June.
