As per previous leaks, Apple is planning to replace the iPad mini with a foldable device. The reports stated that Apple could bring a foldable phone at the price of an iPad mini.
The report further stated that the company's first foldable iPhone is expected to bring at least 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
