Foldable Apple iPhones Could Be on the Way

Two prototypes have reportedly passed the company’s internal durability test.

Foldable Apple iPhones have merely been a rumor over the past few years. While the company has yet to comment on these speculations, it’s recently reported that two foldable iPhone prototypes have passed the tech giant’s internal durability test.

According to Economic Daily Newsthe two models were produced at the Foxconn factory in Shenzhen, China. One reportedly features a dual-screen design, which Jon Prosser predicted on Twitter last year: “The current prototype has two separate display panels on a hinge. Round, stainless steel edges like [the] current iPhone 11 design. No notch — tiny forehead on outer display that houses Face ID.” Additionally, Apple filed a patent in February 2020 for “electronic devices with flexible displays and hinges.”

The second prototype comes in a foldable display, reminiscent of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. Back in September 2020, Apple reportedly ordered the display samples from its competitor, as per Apple leaker “Ice Universe.”

Reports state that Apple’s new iPhones won’t release until 2022 or 2023. The tech company is also rumored to release the mini-LED 12.9-inch iPad Pro sometime this year.
