Apple seems to be exploring curved iPhone screens and 'touchless' gestures

Apple reportedly plans iPhones with curved screens and non-touch gesture controls

Apple Testing 'Touchless' Gestures for the iPhone

Apple is known to be the trendsetter for new technologies in the market. In the latest set of rumours coming out of Bloomberg, one states that Apple is exploring using touchless gesture control and curved screens.

USA tech giant Apple is reportedly working on OLED curved display and air touch controls (gesture control) for upcoming iPhones, signalling a shift in its design control for future. This new feature would work by detecting the user's proximity to the screen to determine what the person is trying to do. The control feature would let iPhone users perform some tasks by moving their finger close to the screen without actually tapping it. However, there is no word on how these new gestures would be integrated into iOS software.

Apple is also redesigning iPhone screens to curve inward towards the middle; different from Samsung which curve at the edges.

Apple has just released a new series of adverts and tutorials for iPad and iPad Pro, focusing on Apple Pencil, Split View and more!

Apple Snatches Google's Head of AI to Vastly Improve Siri and More
There are surely more applications of machine learning planned in the future; Giannandrea would likely spearhead those efforts. Whether or not making computers smarter and more personal means improving search features with AI remains to be seen.

The Tame Apple Press claims that Apple's move to curved screens will make it completely different from its rivals because none of them has such super-evolved high technology. Last year, the company has introduced its brand-new design strategy with the iPhone X. The iPhone X's OLED screen curves slightly at the bottom, but the shape is mostly invisible to the human eye.

Both technologies are in their developing phases, however, consumers should expect the features to arrive in the 2020 or 2021 model years. The only catch with the new features is that they won't be available for at least two years, according to Bloomberg.

Apple has been working on their ARM-based processors now available inside iOS devices, the Apple Watch, and the Apple TV.

Air Gestures, on the other hand, rely on a motion sensor in the phone's bezel. So, we can say that we cannot see this technology in near future.
