Rumor claims ‘iPhone Fold’ coming in 2022 for $1,499

The rumor: Apple isn’t just working on a foldable iPhone…it’s coming in 2022, according to The Verifier (53.2% accurate).

  • The starting price for the larger-screened iPhone may be just $1,499, with 256GB of base storage included
  • 8GB RAM is also rumored to be standard
  • It’s possible the introduction of this hybrid device could mark the end of the iPad mini

Our take: To say I’m highly skeptical of this information is an understatement. The Verifier is just over 50% accurate and on top of that, pricing information doesn’t usually leak out until months ahead of a product’s unveil…not years. All of this sounds realistic, and it may be real, but I have my doubts.
