Apple reportedly developing gesture controls, curved screens for iPhones ars_ab.settitle(1287905)

Apple targets schools with new iPad, apps

Now according to some reports, Apple is working on new touchless controls for its upcoming iPhones.

Tim Cook & Co. are also allegedly designing a control feature that would let users perform certain tasks by simply hovering their finger over the screen.

Apple's curved screen design is rumoured to take a different approach to Samsung's with a curve that extends from top to bottom instead of at the edges.

Apple's tenth-anniversary iPhone X marked the first big redesign on the company's smartphones since 2014, when Apple finally relented and released an iPhone "phablet" with a significantly larger display.

As per the report, a curved screen iPhone with touchless gestures could arrive in the next two to three years.

On top of that, phones with screens that "curve inward gradually from top to bottom" are nothing new. Although the iPhone does boast the best camera out of any smartphone, nearly all of their other features have been implemented and mastered by other manufacturers such as Samsung, LG, and Sony. Two years is not far off.

Apple will reportedly feature touchless gesture support and curved displays in future iPhones.

Technology changes faster than most of us can keep up.

As stated, both features are in early stages of development and it will be a couple of years before they see the light of day. Apple's version will have 3D Touch like functions where users can hover their fingers over an icon and it will display more options.

The Cupertino-giant also plans to use curved displays on its iPhones.

Apple often moves slowly to adopt new technologies.

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