Apple's foldable iPhone will reportedly support a stylus

Peter, 15 February 2021

The first rumors that Apple is developing a foldable iPhone cropped up in late 2017. More recent reports suggest that the device will finally be ready for market next year, but a new report from analytic firm EqualOcean pushes that back to 2023.

Interestingly, the report also claims that the foldable iPhone will support a stylus. It’s not clear if that means the current Apple Pencil that is used by select iPads (and that iPhones are occasionally rumored to support) or if it will be a new design.

When unfolded, the screen will measure between 7.3 and 7.6 inches. That will be with a very tall aspect ratio as the foldable iPhone is said to have a clamshell form factor – a vertical folder like the Galaxy Z Flip (which has a 6.7” 22:9 screen).

There has been no official confirmation from Apple that it is indeed developing a folding phone. The company prefers to work in secret and is also allegedly involved in building AR goggles and a self-driving car.

clamshell form factor isn't the right decision in my opinion and horizontal folding like Galaxy Fold will be better decision.
