Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 Multitasking 2

Rumor Has it Apple is Testing Folding iPhone Designs

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 Multitasking 2

Before I get into this new story, let’s get one thing straight- no matter what anyone is saying right now, Apple has been working on a folding iPhone. Whatever forms that has taken and however far they have gone, their patent filings alone prove they have been prototyping and kicking the tires for a few years. That said, there is a new report today that Apple is taking things to the next level when it comes to foldables.

Tomorrow is iPhone Day Two. Who’s Getting an iPhone 12 Mini or Pro Max?

iPhone 12 Pro Max

I guess we develop more patience as we grow older, because it hasn’t seemed like too much of a wait to get to iPhone Launch Day Number 2. There was a time when I would be happily gearing up to get up at 1:45 AM or so to pre-order the latest iPhone. On one occasion, I even went to an Apple Store and spent the night waiting in line when it was the only way to get a 5S on launch day. In more recent years, I’ve gotten up early because it was required, but any appeal that had wore off a while ago.

Apple Should Include the iPad Air 4’s TouchID Sensor On the iPhone 13

iPad Air 4 TouchID

Remember when the first concrete rumors of the new iPad Air started making the rounds earlier this year? One of the standout features in those reports was an under-screen TouchID sensor. The fact that we might first see a new feature like that in a mid-tier device was pretty interesting at the time, but was also reason for skepticism.

Another Year, Another iPhone Without Apple Pencil Support

Apple Pencil 2

Yes, I am a broken record. I’ve written about my desire to see Apple Pencil support come to the iPhone many times over the last three years (like here, here, here and here). I’ve covered the rumors and predictions and I’ve complained when they are ultimately shot down. There understandably haven’t been many amid the craziness of 2020, so I haven’t had much to talk about this year, not that I have much hope left that Apple will throw holdouts like me who want this a bone.

However, with new iPhones set to be announced tomorrow, I can’t help but think about the fact that Apple is missing an opportunity again.

So the iPhone 12 Pro Will Look Like the iPad Pro. Will it Bend like One, Too?

2018 iPad Pro

Mark Gurman and Company at Bloomberg were back in a big way today, predicting the design of the coming premium iPhone 12 models, as well as delivering some additional details on AirTags and the HomePods 2. Several of these details have already been covered extensively elsewhere today, so won’t bother rehashing them again. I am only interested in one at the moment.

Sign Me Up For the New 6.7″ iPhone Rumors

Japanese blog Mac Otakara had a report yesterday about Apple’s iPhones that are coming this Fall. Sure, these rumors are almost 9 months ahead of release, but I’ll bite. Anytime we are talking about an even bigger iPhone, then I am totally on board.

Some Good News for Fans of Smaller iPhones

According to Korea’s ETNews, Apple will be shaking up the sizes of the iPhone 12 next year. The follow-ups to the Pro models will be going in different directions, with the current 6.5″ Max model growing to 6.7″ and the smaller 5.8″ version shrinking to 5.4″. Considering that the only direction for the iPhone lately has been up, this would be a notable shift.

I Love Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Program

If you haven’t used Apple’s in-house payment plan for iPhones, the you might not understand why I’m a fan. I’ve used it for a few years now, after one year of AT&T’s Next. That last comment is one big reason why: it gets you de-coupled from your cell provider. That, and the fact that it offered me an easy way to upgrade my iPhone yearly by going directly to Apple were big reasons why I made the switch. Add in an easy way to spread out payments for AppleCare+ (now with optional Theft and Loss prevention), and I was sold.

Apple’s Next Gen iPhone is Coming Into Focus

There have been plenty of iPhone 11 rumors already this year. Nothing new there, as there has been a constant flow of leaks and reports for each iPhone spanning months since the leadup to the iPhone X changed things. There were rumors and leaks before, but not like this. Unfortunately, no matter how the iPhone is selling, I don’t think there is any going back.

Apple May Be Working on a New Smaller Screen iPhone

There were some Apple fans who were unhappy with the company when they killed off the iPhone SE last year, rather than updating it. This meant that there weren’t many options for those Apple users who want a smaller screen device. You can still get an iPhone 7 or 8, but you are giving up something there in terms of specs.
