Apple's foldable iPhone may just be a Surface Duo look-alike

Industry analyst Jon Prosser - who has a bit of form for predicting what Apple is planning to do next with its phones - reckons that the iFold, which isn't the name, but is exactly what they should call it, is in development as we speak.

According to him, the design of the Apple foldable iPhone might be completely different than we have expected. The general design will feature rounded steel designs, unlike the iPhone 12 that is reported to go for a boxier look with flat sides.

Gadget and accessory seller @Jin_Store posted design renders and 3D mock-ups of the device.

Finally, round the front of the iPhone 12 the notch has indeed shrunk, and the True Tone flash unit has been moved to the middle of the array.

All Four Apple iPhone 12 Models to Apparently Ship Without EarPods. For example, Mac buyers past year could get a free pair of Beats Studio3 Wireless headphones worth $400, while iPad Pro and iPad Air buyers got $250 in credit toward the same high-end headphones. On that front, Apple has been said to be considering an Apple services bundle, with music, news and TV, but its music licensing deals may derail those plans and would make a full bundle of devices and services hard to launch.

That would be later than Apple's handled iPhone launches in recent years, but not that much later. The Back-to-School promotion runs until September 29, 2020 and is available through Apple's education store website, at Apple's retail stores, or by calling 1-800-MY-APPLE.

Personally, I find the notion that Apple would release an iPhone without headphones hard to believe.

Until then, it'll be impossible to verify these leaked designs.

The financing applies for new Macs, iPads, Apple TVs, AirPods and over a dozen other products sold in the Apple Store.

Apple had already offered interest-free financing for its iPhone through the iPhone Upgrade Program before its launch of Apple Card interest-free financing past year.
