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.
Earlier this week, reports started circulating that Apple is testing out folding screen samples from Samsung for potential use in future products. This is certainly notable, since Apple already sources most of it’s OLED screens from them and because Samsung is putting so much R&D emphasis on folding screen tech. However, while some may see this as a sign that a folding iPhone is inevitable and coming soon, I just see it as business as usual at Apple.
