Two Apple prototypes have recently passed the endurance tests
2019 was the year that foldable phones arrived on the market, thus shifting the interest of people. 2020 did not turn out as most people expected and we just saw improvements to previous models. This year we may have some development in consumer acceptance, especially if prices manage to fall. In any case, Apple believes that there is a future in these devices since it is developing one itself.
According to Economic Daily News, two original Apple devices passed the company’s internal endurance tests. This means that they now meet Apple’s criteria for device quality. The first is said to be a dual-screen model, perhaps the same one revealed by Jon Prosser in June.
The second prototype looks more like the Galaxy Z Flip and will probably incorporate Samsung’s flexible OLED display. Note that prototypes are not complete devices. They have little inside and the purpose of the tests is to determine the durability of the hinges and the overall quality of the device. Only one of the two prototypes will eventually be selected for further development.
Apple entering the electric car industry
Until then, we can only sit and wait for more updates on the matter. On other Apple news, they are also preparing to enter the electric car market.
We have read a lot of reports about an Apple electric car in recent years, under the veil of mystery of Project Titan, which sometimes seems to be making progress and sometimes it has stagnated. But now a Reuters post offers more details. According to a Reuters source through Apple, the company will start production of its own electric car in 2024.
What stands out in the vehicle, is the ” revolutionary ” – as he calls it – battery technology that will use. This technology will allow Apple to incorporate more active material into the battery cell, giving the new car more range. Apple is also exploring the use of LFP batteries, which although not as dense as other types, are more temperature resistant and do not require cobalt.
