Apple’s new invention could be a game-changer for the foldable iPhone

Apple never comments on rumors and speculation about unannounced products, and it rarely unveils new devices before they’re ready to launch. The foldable iPhone is one of those mysterious products that Apple is reportedly developing right now behind closed doors. But the foldable iPhone won’t launch for at least a few more years because Apple needs to perfect a few key innovations before manufacturing the handset.

The main concern about foldable devices is still the screen, which is simultaneously the most exciting and most fragile component of a foldable phone. Apple will never do what Samsung did with the Galaxy Fold. The Korean giant launched the first-generation foldable without ensuring the handset can withstand real-life use. Early reviewers found not one but two separate defects, forcing Samsung to delay the launch by nearly six months so it could address those catastrophic design problems.

While Apple will not comment on rumors, there is one thing Apple can’t protect, and that’s the disclosure of the key innovations that could help it create its first foldable iPhones. One such discovery tells us that Apple is working on screen tech that would offer foldable devices much better protection against cracks.
