Foldable Folding iPhone
Rumors have been circulating online about Apple working on a folding iPhone, and for that to happen, it would need a flexible display. Scotty Allen of Strange Parts decided to build a proof of concept device showing how it would work using a flexible AMOLED display. It all started with a shipment of two flexible panels from Aliexpress, with one measuring just 0.3 mm thick. Unfortunately, the thinner display was a bit too fragile, while the other one was less flexible.

The displays were plugged into adapter boards for an HDMI connection, which was then powered on using a Raspberry Pi 4 mini computer. This connection allowed Scotty to mirror his iPhone screen over a Wi-Fi connection. Fortunately, the test was a success and only set him back around $500. This would mean that if Apple were to release a folding iPhone, its cost would be significantly more than a standard model, possibly over $2,000+.
