It showed various ways of Apple of making bendable OLED screen. There is even an illustration showing a trifold design.

The patent showed that Apple is planning to make a foldable iPhone/iPad hybrid. And who knows, maybe there's a chance that it could work like a tablet or a mini PC with keyboard.

CNET added that there's no guarantee that Apple will release this device in 2019. But for us, it is still quite exciting.

Let us just hope that it is not too late for Apple in joining the foldable party yet.
