The rumor: Apple’s internal teams are pushing ahead on a foldable iPhone with a clamshell flip design, according to Jon Prosser (79.2% accurate).
- While both flip and fold designs have been in testing, Apple’s focus has reportedly shifted to the flip-phone design
- The foldable iPhone is also said to come in multiple colors, suggesting that this device will be targeted a more general audience
Our take: I definitely see Apple settling on one design, and this report from Prosser solidifies that mentality. Still, I’m highly skeptical that a folding iPhone from Apple will ever release, because it just doesn’t feel like something that they would do. Something about a folding phone feels cheap, regardless of the price tag.
