Apple's Developing Curved Displays and 'Touchless' Controls for iPhone

HomePod Stereo Pairing And AirPlay 2 Might Arrive With iOS 11.4 As Per Latest Reference

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.

Apple has long embraced new ways for humans to interact with computers.

We're expecting Apple to announce and release its new handsets in September this year.

Apple is reportedly working on touches gesture screens that curve, which will be different than all other smartphones in the mobile phone market. This would involve a screen where the actual middle of the display is lower than the top and bottom edges, resembling LG's Flex smartphone to an extent.

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. OLED displays are capable of being shaped into curves or even folded, unlike LCD screens, which were used in older iPhones. Apple is still in the early development stages with those technologies.

An Apple spokeswoman, however, declined to comment on this. They are rumored to have curved screens and feature touchless controls.

While Apple hasn't introduced touchless gestures in the past, companies like Samsung and Motorola have. The feature would be based on technology built into the display itself rather than via a motion sensor on the phone's bezel, like with Samsung's implementation, the person explained.

Samsung's Galaxy handsets curve in at the side edges of the display, so Apple would be able to differentiate with that approachAs Bloomberg points out, the iPhone X already curves in ever-so-slightly at the bottom of the display, but future iterations could see this become much more pronounced.
