iOS 17 Proves Apple Doesn’t Need a Foldable Phone… Yet

Almost every major smartphone maker has released a foldable phone or is planning to, with Apple being the main exception. Android phone makers clearly see the future of smartphones as devices that can fold in half to more easily fit in your pocket or fold open to double as a tablet.

The superhero genre landed in theaters with an overwhelming roar and grabbed the attention of moviegoers straight away. Superhero movies aren’t anything new, to say they are a new phenomenon would be a slight to the greats like Christopher Reeve, Michael Keaton, Wesley Snipes, and countless others from past superhero movies.
