Apple working on touchless control and curved iPhone screen

Adjust Comment Print

If you didn't think the iPhone X was a substantial enough shift in terms of design, it looks like Apple has a more significant revamp in store. Apple appears to be exploring touchless gesture control and curved screens, according to latest rumors from Bloomberg. It's unclear exactly how this feature would work, but it likely involves "hovering" over specific user-interface elements and won't be the core way of interacting with the smartphone. But, again, don't expect these features to be included in this year's new iPhones. This iPhone display would have a screen that curves inward gradually from the top to the bottom of the phone.

Samsung now uses smartphone screens that curve, but its curved screens slope down at the edges, rather than from top to bottom.

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.

Blac Chyna hinted at this when she told her fans that she would protect her child at all costs. "Love, King and Dreams mommy". A woman claiming to be the other person involved has since taken to Twitter to share her version of events.

Bloomberg's sources reiterated that both features are still relatively early in the research and development phase, and Apple could choose to nix either.

Apple did not immediately respond to PCMag's request for comment.

While Apple hasn't introduced touchless gestures in the past, companies like Samsung and Motorola have. To stay ahead, Apple needs compelling new features and designs.

Wenger reveals tactical switch that could see Aubameyang and Lacazette start
His presence did not have a significant effect initially, but Arsenal seemed to have found some of their usual zip in the attack. The Gunners will have to play better in the first leg against CSKA Moscow on Thursday in Europe.

The Samsung Air Gestures system relies on hand-wave motions, which are detected by a motion sensor on the phone's bezel. The gestures wouldn't need to be close to the screen like how Apple is developing its gesture feature.

To access adequate OLED supplies for these new devices, Apple is expanding its sourcing from Samsung to also include LG Display, the people said.
