Predicted for years, AppleApple finally released its Vision Pro mixed reality headset in the United States at the end of last week. This is not the only new type of device that Apple is working on. Rumors have been circulating for years about a foldable iPhone. However, according to an anonymous source cited by the media The Informationit would be much more than rumors.
The firm is currently working on two clamshell versions, in other words with a normal-sized screen, which folds in half like the Motorola Razr or the Samsung Galaxy Flip, rather than a smartphone-sized device which unfolds to become a tablet. The firm is still trying to correct a number of problems, such as making the crease disappear and preventing it from becoming more pronounced over time.
A launch not before 2026 at the earliest!
Apple would also have set the bar very high, since the firm would like to avoid it being very thick once folded, like the current clamshell models. The goal would be for it to be only half the thickness of a standard iPhone when unfolded. Two other points that could block are the hinge, and the software side. For its foldable smartphone to stand out on the market, Apple will notably have to include exclusive features in iOSiOS which do not exist among the competition.
According to the source, the development of the foldable iPhone is still at an early stage, and Apple has no plans to begin production in massemasse before at least 2026. In addition, it may never see the light of day if the firm considers that it is not completely completed.
