    5 days ago - By Phone Arena

    Back in the day, Apple was known for making each new iteration of their products thinner - the laptops, the iPods, iPhones, and iPads. However, there's only so far you can go with the currently available tech and, for the past few years, Apple's iDevices haven't been getting skinnier.

The next year, Apple introduced 3D Touch and the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus grew by 0.2 mm or roughly 0.01 inch.

Apple already sells a couple of official cases of their own, but for the iPhone X it seems that the company has unveiled a new model in the form a folio cover . As you can see in the image above, the folio cover is basically a case that...
