Now that the secrets are out for all things iPhone 13, it’s time to discuss what Apple has in store for the future of iPhones. As technology advances, so do desires for new high-tech iPhone features that make life easier than ever before. Of course, Apple tries its best not to disappoint, so let’s see what is reportedly in store for future iPhones. 

Ongoing rumors are floating around that Apple plans to ditch the notch entirely, develop under-display Touch ID, and come out with a foldable iPhone. Such display-related rumors seem to be a logical next step for future iPhones, but it seems Apple users might have to wait longer than expected for some of these exciting features.

Renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported today that their forecast of launching the under-display fingerprint and the foldable iPhone is delayed to 2023 and 2024 due to a slower development process than anticipated.

This is not the first time we have heard of Apple working on flexible phone technology, considering a new patent recently revealed a flex battery in the works. However, Apple might need to buckle down and speed up the development process if they want to stay up to date with other smartphones like Samsung because foldable smartphones will likely be a crucial selling point for 2024.

By no means is Apple giving up on its efforts to develop features like a foldable and notchless iPhone. In fact, Apple already tested under-display Touch ID for iPhone 13, but it didn’t make the cut. It’s simply taking longer than expected to perfect these features.
