Apple Developing Curved iPhone Display, Touchless Control Technology

Apple Developing Curved iPhone Display, Touchless Control Technology

"The control feature would let iPhone users perform some tasks by moving their finger close to the screen without actually tapping it ..."

The curved screens would curve in gradually from top to bottom rather than along the edges like Samsung's screens. According to a new report, Apple is now working on curved iPhone displays which may arrive in a couple of years.

OLED, or organic light emitting diode, displays can be shaped into curves or even folded, unlike the less-flexible LCD screen technology used in prior iPhones. That technology is also at least two years off, Bloomberg says.

If Apple were to succeed in developing curved screens for its iPhone series, consumers can expect to see future releases rocking this type of display. Bloomberg also reiterates its belief that Apple's microLED display technology is three to five years away.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Though it sounds like Apple's version of touchless gestures will be a bit different on how they are implemented.

MRI on Warriors' Patrick McCaw Shows no Structural Damage
McCaw, who appeared to be trying to dunk, did a scissor kick in the air over Carter's shoulder before landing hard on his back. Soon after, Warriors players David West , Shaun Livingston and JaVale McGee went to the locker room to calm their emotions.

Apple is preparing something new for its future iPhones. But the issue for the firm this time around is that the iPhone X has been a lot less successful than the company had hopes. Samsung is already working on a foldable smartphone, while Huawei is seeing increased success in Asia.

According to Bloomberg, upcoming iPhones could also detect touchless gestures right above the display.

Air Gestures, on the other hand, rely on a motion sensor in the phone's bezel.

While we're still getting the hang of Apple's new gesture interface on the iPhone X, Apple is apparently working on an entirely new kind of phone with a touchless gesture-based input.
