Foldable iPhones are Coming Sooner than Expected
According to Economic Daily News, Apple already started the process of manufacturing foldable iPhones. A couple of their prototypes have been sent to Foxconn, which is Apple’s manufacturing supplier, to be tested. The main goal is to provide the guarantee of a minimum of 100,000 folds per iPhone. Foxconn will be the one to decide between OLED or micro-LED display technology.
Every September is a worldwide madness because that is when Apple’s latest iPhone series is launched. That being said, it is no wonder that the release date of the new foldable iPhone is expected to arrive in September 2022. Considering that this is all based only on a leak, it is always best to take it with a grain of salt. Apple can always change its mind.
Foldable iPhones Replacing the iPad Mini
Nowadays, the use of tablets is in decline because of their impractical size and the rising technology of smartphones that are more than capable of handling heavy-duty tasks. The more compact and the more functions a gadget has, the more appreciated it is. Therefore, more and more people are choosing to purchase iPhones over iPads. According to the leak, the new foldable iPhone is expected to sport 256GB of storage, 8GB of RAM, and to sell for $1,499 (≈ £1,100 / €1,299). These features support the idea that iPads or iPad Minis don’t fit in a modern world anymore when everybody can get the same performances from their pocket-sized smartphones.
