An Apple foldable device rumor has been floating around the web for some time now. TF International Securities – analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Apple is researching an e-paper screen for its flexible gadget, which is expected to go on sale in the future. E-readers like the Kindle use this style of display. The analyst’s suggestion on Apple’s foldable gadget is detailed further in the article, which you can read now.
The Electronic Paper Display from E Ink is being tested by Apple for its foldable product, stated on May 17, 2022, according to Kuo’s Twitter account. For the covering screen & tablet-like apps of the foldable, the business plans to utilize EPD.
Apple is testing E Ink's Electronic Paper Display (EPD) for future foldable device's cover screen & tablet-like applications. The color EPD has the potential to become a mainstream solution for foldable devices' must-have cover/second screen thanks to its excellent power-saving.

According to the second half of Kuo’s tweet, because of its exceptional power savings, the color EPD has the capacity to be a widespread solution for the must-have cover/second panel of foldable gadgets in the future. They are discussing EPD’s ability to consume very little electricity. As it’s already difficult to fit all of a smartphone’s electronics into a foldable’s physical size, there’s not much room for a battery. As a result, foldable cellphones are currently unable to have huge battery packs. As a result, EPDs might serve as a device’s second screen, saving power. However, further details regarding Apple’s foldable phone are expected to emerge in the following weeks and months.
Additionally, Apple’s Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that all of the company’s lightning-connected peripherals – notably AirPods; a Magic Keyboard; a Trackpad; a Mouse, and a MagSafe Battery System – would eventually be replaced by USB-C versions. To predict, Apple may release the iPhone 15 in 2023, thus it’s reasonable to assume that perhaps the iPhone 15 should include a USB-C connector.
