Apple Patents Foldable iPhone with Flexible Display
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has recently published Apple’s patent application describing a foldable iPhone with flexible display.
The body of the handset will be foldable and may use different types of hinges. To make the smartphone display flexible enough, it would be placed in a way that would allow it to bend when the housing moves.
Apple has filed a patent that describes a foldable iPhone with a flexible display. The patent is entitled, "Flexible display devices".
Apple notes that "it would be desirable to be able to use flexible display technology to provide improved electronic devices."
It is very unlikely that the next-generation iPhone will support these features. Apple is developing the technologies for future iterations of the smartphone.
