The self-healing display technology, on the other hand, allows the panel to recover from minor scratches which is a common problem with foldable devices.

It is highly unlikely that we will see a foldable iPhone anytime soon though. However, reports have surfaced of a possible foldable iPad which would be less risky for the company. It also allows Apple to refine the panel technology and even the hinge before rolling it out to the iPhone.
