Apple's foldable iPhone, rumored to be called the iPhone Flip, could be delayed two years. The device has been reportedly pushed back to 2025, according to a Monday report from Ross Young, analyst and CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, reported on by 9to5Mac

The foldable iPhone's release date has been a moving target. Earlier rumors suggested the device would arrive in 2021, before pinning the launch to 2023 at the earliest. 

If a foldable iPhone enters the market, Apple would be competing with Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip, as well as the Motorola Razr and possibly a foldable Google Pixel

Apple didn't immediately respond to CNET's request for comment.
