Apple reportedly developing gesture controls, curved screens for iPhones ars_ab.settitle(1287905)

A new report purportedly coming from "people with knowledge of the matter" says Apple is working on bringing curved screens to its smartphones, a move which may happen in around 2-3 years.

The gesture control tech Apple is apparently envisioning would let users perform tasks by moving their finger close to the iPhone's screen, but not touching it. Samsung, which is Apple's competitor, curves its flagship Galaxy phones horizontally. 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.

We know that Apple is at least considering this tech based on a patent released in November 2017, which described using the iPhone X's TrueDepth's camera system to recognize hand movements in 3D space. Looking back, it was Apple who gifted the world with the computer mouse, the iconic iPhone, features such as 3D touch (pressure-based touch gesture in a phone) etc. The curves will presumably be a lot more noticeable than the slightly curved display on the bottom of the iPhone X. Besides what has been mentioned above, a separate report from Bloomberg last month revealed that Apple is also working on microLED screens in a secret manufacturing facility near California.

OLED, or organic light emitting diode, displays can be shaped into curves or even folded, unlike the less-flexible LCD screen technology used in prior iPhones. The mighty iPhone X, Apple's tenth anniversary iPhone, marked the first prominent re-design in iPhones since ever. Apple's touchless gesture control detection method is rumoured to be built into the display itself instead of functioning via an external motion sensor on the phone's bezel. In other words, it will allow users to navigate iOS just by waving with their hands above the phone. The company also promised a new version of its iWork apps like Pages, Numbers, and Keynote that support the Apple Pencil.
