Apple could be preparing to outdo its rivals by making its own folding phone. A patent submitted by the company shows a double folding screen that can either be bent back on itself or folded inward from either end. The design means the device could also be used as a tablet when unfurled.  

iPhone submitted a prototype last year which folds in the middle and since then Huawei, Samsung and Lenovo have all launched foldable devices. In a US patent spotted by Apple Patently, the company filed to protect both single and multifold devices. The document includes 37 drawings covering different technical features and folding configurations.

The diagrams detail how the folding mechanism will work and states it is a hinge which rotates to allow the screen to fold together. It will be able to go from a 180 degree angle to 90 degree angle, it claims. Another diagram shows that the screen can be folded backwards so that it wraps around the 'back' of the device. In this form, the screen forms a triangle, and two people seated on either side of the folded display could view the same content when it is balanced on two edges.
