Apple Said to Be Working on a Curved iPhone With Touchless Controls

Apple's always been said to be working on new technologies to build into its lineup of iPhones, and today's report out of Bloomberg corroborates these rumors.

Curved screens are the other new feature that Apple is reportedly working on.

Once complete, users will be able to navigate their iPhones by merely moving a finger close to the screen without having to actually touch or tap it. These two major screen technologies are said to come as Apple plans to make its iPhone handsets more distinct and stand out from the ever-expanding smartphone market where majority appear the same with bezel-less screens, powerful dual cameras and more.

The air gestures on the Galaxy S4 let its owners check out photos or go down a scroll by merely using hand swipes at a distance.

Apple's iPhone X has an OLED screen that curves slightly at the bottom but isn't detectable. These are touchless gesture control and curvy display screens.

Apple's 3D Touch works by detecting the different amounts of pressure applied by the user.

Mobile device management (MDM) vendor Jamf is warning admins to hold off on installing the iOS 11.3 update until it can fix a bug in its software that was causing devices to become unresponsive. But Bloomberg's sources claim the iPhone's display will curve "inward gradually from top to bottom", which is very different from screens on Samsung's flagships, which have curved side edges. The new OLED iPhone X will have a screen size of 6.5 inches as compared to the previous iPhone X size 5.8 inch. Unlike Android's, mostly rudimentary face unlock - a glorified picture match - Apple crammed an IR blaster that made the shape and nuances of your face the unlock button. If Apple wants any success with this, they motions need to be subtle and efficient, lest they create an army of wacky waving inflatable arm tube men trying to open up Safari. If it's worth anything, though, my best guess would be us seeing the curved screen first. The company is also working on launching a lower-cost LCD model of iPhone.
