Apple engineers are working flat out on the next iPhone versions.

According to a media report, the company has two big surprises in the pipeline.

  • Apple

    * had to postpone the launch of the

    iPhone 12

    last year

    due to the corona pandemic

    .

  • This year a

    popular feature could make

    its comeback on the top models.

  • In the medium term, the Californians are even working on a

    design revolution

    .

Munich - The new

iPhone 12

from

Apple

has received top marks from bloggers and tech sites around the world.

In addition to the design and the improved battery life, the flagship of the group shines above all with a top camera.

But the Californians have long been working on future models.

One innovation in particular could cause a sensation.

According to a report by the news agency

Bloomberg

, the

Cupertino-based company is working

on a folding

iPhone

*.

The development is still in the early stages, they say.

A decision on a market launch has not yet been made.

Currently,

Apple

is initially concentrating

on the development of a foldable display.

Functional prototypes of the

iPhone

with a folding display do not yet exist, Bloomberg writes, citing an Apple employee who is not named.

It could therefore take some time until a possible market launch.

Apple: possible folding iPhone electrifies the industry

Recently there had been repeated speculations * about a possible entry by 

Apple

 into the market for foldable smartphones.

The South Korean tech giant and Apple partner

Samsung

 had already made

a first attempt

in 2019 with the

Galaxy Fold

.

However, immediately after the start, users complained of broken displays and problems with the folding mechanism.

The group had to postpone the market launch at short notice.

A good year ago, Samsung made

a new attempt

with the

Galaxy Z Flip

.

Competitors such as 

Huawei

 or 

Motorola

 are now starting with similar devices.

Samsung is one of

Apple's

major suppliers

.

According to Bloomberg,

Apple is

discussing different display sizes when developing a prototype, including a 6.7-inch version.

That would correspond to the current top model iPhone 12 Pro Max, but with half the space required in the trouser pocket.

Apple: Is a popular feature making its comeback in the iPhone 13?

The main focus is currently on the development of the next iPhone generation.

Apple

traditionally presents the latest version of its flagship in September, but had to postpone the date last year due to the corona pandemic.

Observers

do not

expect

any major changes

in the design of the

iPhone 13

.

However, the fingerprint sensor, which has since been abolished, could possibly celebrate its comeback in the iPhone in the fall, reports Bloomberg.

For years,

Apple

had relied on finger recognition sensors to unlock its devices.

However, since 2017 the company has replaced the feature in its new top versions of the iPhone with facial recognition.

However, because of the corona masks that are now common around the world, the technology has proven to be less user-friendly.

Finger recognition could now also be back on board in the top models.
