Future iPhones may have curved screens and touchless gesture controls

Apple iPad 6th-generation review: The tablet to buy Apple might be bringing air gesture controls and curved screens to future iPhones

Specifically, a Bloomberg report from earlier in the week claims that Apple has been prototyping a curved iPhone model created to stand out in a smartphone market where devices are becoming harder and harder to tell apart.

With the iPhone X off to a weaker than expected start, Apple has been scrambling to offer better innovations in future devices.

Apple Inc.is reportedly working on new two technologies, which includes curved displays and touchless gesture control that would be used in future iPhones, reported Mark Gurman at Bloomberg, citing people who claim to have knowledge of its research.

Cupertino last week released iOS 11.3 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, promising the usual bug fixes and performance improvements, as well as a handful of new features.

It is being said that Apple will be building this tech right on the screen instead of using a motion gesture controller on the bezels, something similar to what Samsung does to implement Air Gestures in its smartphones.

Samsung now uses smartphone screens that curve, but its curved screens slope down at the edges, rather than from top to bottom. If you can recall, Samsung launched Air View for Galaxy devices that allows users to a take peek at the content in apps and do other things. The iPhone X's OLED screen curves slightly at the bottom, but the shape is hard to detect. Unlike the display on the Samsung Galaxy S9, this new iPhone's display will curve from inwards from top to bottom (kind of like a banana). As a result, the Apple rumor mill has been working overtime lately.

Organic Light Emitting Diode displays, aka OLED displays, are flexible and can be shaped into curves or even folded, unlike LCD.

Anyone can join Apple's Beta Software Program, although we don't recommend installing test software on your main devices.

In more recent years, Apple has not been afraid to tweak the physical design of the iPhone, finally introducing larger display options and, more recently, going with an all-front display (save for that annoying notch at the top).
