Another radical change that Apple made with the iPhone X is taking out the home button. Even then, this will only happen if LG Display can produce the screens reliably and in the massive scale Apple would require.

The Company's products and services include iPhone, iPad, Mac, iPod, Apple TV, a portfolio of consumer and professional software applications, the iOS and OS X operating systems, iCloud, and a variety of accessory, service and support offerings. According to this rumor, the new iPhone may show up as early as 2020.

In the case of the foldable iPhone, it seems that LG will take the place of the South Korean giant.

In the end, reports claim that Apple is actively considering a significant investment in the LG plant responsible for the manufacturing of flexible OLED displays. The latter has been busy making a bendable smartphone of its own for the past few years, recently confirming that it was looking to launch the device next year. It wouldn't be the first time we saw Apple take something someone else invented and ideal it to an extent where we actually think that it is an innovation.
