What About a Folding iPhone?
You probably have noticed that Apple has been curiously absent from this list. But while Apple hasn’t made any announcements related to a foldable iPhones, there are indications that the Cupertino tech giant is developing similar technology.
That mostly comes in the form of patents and patent applications related to folding displays — and there have been a lot of them over the past few years. Even though Apple has been silent on folding displays, it’s basically guaranteed that the tech is being considered by the firm in some way.
Still, while Apple does break new ground, it doesn’t tend to follow the hype train when it comes to smartphone trends. Just look at 5G. Apple reportedly won’t debut a 5G phone until 2020, a year after the first Android 5G devices roll out. Expect a similar, cautious timeline for iPhones with foldable displays.
