Apple's folding iPhone is coming… but will it ever take off?

While Apple's new iPhone 12 range has won plaudits for its sleek, flat-edged design, the form factor isn't exactly a marked departure from the iPhone before it (or the iPhone before that). But if new leaks are to be believed, we could soon be in for something completely different at last.

A new report suggests Apple has begun sending foldable iPhones to its assembly partner Foxconn for testing. The testing will allegedly determine what type of display Apple decides to use. It makes sense that the tech giant wants to get it right – folding phones have failed to take off so far, but if there's a company capable of designing one worthy of our best camera phones list, we reckon it's Apple.
