World’s first foldable iPhone unveiled with hinge design borrowed from Moto Razr
They spent around 300 days putting the plan into action, but the functional device they created still uses many of the original parts. The creators self-identified their work as “iPhone V.”
Although the plan was to use the original iPhone screen, but the creators had to do a lot of work to make the display flexible.

The iPhone’s OLED matrix is flexible on its own, but the rest of the screen isn’t. Hence, the creators had to find a new method to get around this limitation.
Following this, a new flexible cable was attached to the screen; this one would not break if bent. An external source was required for the hinges.
The Galaxy Z Flip’s design did not work because it curled the screen too much, but the new Motorola Razr‘s design, which has a nearly 8-millimeter separation between the two half of the screen, did.
The iPhone components had to be arranged in a way that allowed them to fit through two flaps, which meant removing a wireless charging module and a battery in favor of a smaller, 1000 mAh battery.
When the foldable design proved itself functional overall, the project’s authors understood that the interface needed to mirror the smartphone’s adaptable form factor.
An unofficial iOS add-on was chosen as a workaround because of its ability to split the screen, allowing the user to view two apps at once. To achieve all this, the creators had to make use of a jailbroken iOS device without a doubt.
