A foldable iPhone is probably somewhere in Apple’s future, but a concept designer shows us just how amazing it might look today.
The flexible display allows this dream device to be both phone and small tablet.
Say hello to the iPhone Fold
This is the creation of Ben Geskin, who has a long history of designing concept devices. Many of these are based on rumors, but he seems to have dreamed up this foldable iPhone independently.
“I just really want iPhone Fold with ~8-inch ProMotion display with Apple Pencil support,” said Geskin, in a post on Twitter that accompanied the concept design.

There’s a large external display, so this computer can be used as a phone with the primary screen hidden away. Open the clamshell to create a small iPad with support for Apple’s active stylus.
Foldable iPhone is a real possibility
Some concept devices are assembled mostly from wishful thinking and moonbeams, but Geskin’s iPhone Fold could easily resemble a product snuck off a top-secret Apple drawing board.
There’s also some skepticism, especially after Samsung so thoroughly mucked up the launch of the Galaxy Fold. But Apple clearly isn’t rushing out a foldable iPhone — it’s not likely to see the light of day until after Corning completes development work on flexible glass displays.
