Move over iPhone X, Apple just filed a patent for a foldable phone

The iPhone X’s all-screen design and Face ID system is so yesterday. The real iPhone to wait for is the one that could incorporate a foldable body and display. We know Apple is working on that type of phone because a patent application they filed for the technology was just published. The application was applied for on September 22, 2016. The patent application describes an “electronic device” with a display that can folder in both directions, so you can have the display fold in on itself, or fold the device in a way so the front and back has a display. Of course, Apple files for patents a ton of technologies that never see the light of day. Still, this goes to show Apple isn’t resting on its laurels with the iPhone line just because their current device is a massive hit.
