Apple exploring 'touchless' gestures and curved iPhone screens

Screen Shot

It is said that these new technologies are still in the development phase and will take roughly two years before we start seeing them in Apple devices.

MicroLED technology promises to deliver even higher-quality images than today's leading display tech, the OLED (organic light-emitting diode).

Whether either of these features ever gets implemented into a single iPhone remains a mystery, so for now, all we can do is speculate. According to Bloomberg, the new features are touchless gesture controls and curved displays.

Bloomberg reported that Apple is still figuring out how iPhone users can control some tasks by moving a finger near the screen. Now it remains to be seen how the touchless gesture feature works out for Apple.




Bloomberg on Wednesday issued a new report that may offer some insights into Apple's plans for the iPhone of the future.

Of course, this is nothing like Google's Soli which is much better and allows users to make all the sorts of gestures that they would typically make on a screen at a greater distance than what Apple is proposing. Similarly, the new touchless gesture will also take into account the distance of fingers from the screen to add some new and high-tech elements to the technology.

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. Samsung has also used curved displays for its flagship phones for a while now.

iOS 11.4 beta also includes ClassKit, Apple's latest framework for developers to build education apps to support the new Schoolwork iPad app, which lets teachers assign specific assignments within apps. Air Gestures allow users to accept phone calls by waving their hands at a motion sensor housed on top of the phone; while Apple's implementation involves building the sensor into the display itself.
