Apple ‘foldable’ iPhone design sparks controversy

Apple Foldable phones

Everyone is waiting for Apple to follow in the footsteps of its rivals and finally announce the design of a foldable phone.

According to a prominent leaker-of-all-things-Apple, Jon Prosser, the tech giant could be getting closer with its recent prototypes – but, crucially, the design may not contain a flexible screen.

Apparently, Apple is working on a dual screen model, which has two separate screens put together as one, complete with a hinge. Even though Apple usually comes top of the class for its product design and innovation (the iPhone 11 is one of ourbest camera phones, after all), commenters have already begun to pour mirth on the idea, and the memes aren’t pretty.

Source Jon Prosser is quick to defend Apple’s potential design, pointing out in a separate tweet that, although the memes are funny, “it doesn’t look like they just stuck two phones together. Even though they’re separate panels, when the displays are extended, it looks fairly continuous and seamless”. 

Reactions weren’t entirely scornful, though. One, more positive, angle was the Twitter user excited about a futuristic Westworld-style tablet (above). More
