Apple is developing touchless controls and curved screens for future iPhones

The touchless control feature will reportedly let you carry out some tasks by simply moving your finger "close to the screen without actually tapping it". A source has shared that the new iPhone displays curve inward gradually from top to bottom.

You may have spotted curved edges on Samsung's smartphones, but they tend to curve down and away at the display's boundaries. But Apple's long-lasting distaste for curved displays may be going the way of its hatred of big-screen phones - which was legendary back in the day before the first Plus iPhone launched. After all, OLED displays are more flexible than LCD screens. Last year's iPhone X borrows the tall, near-bezel-less design that Samsung championed two years earlier.

A new Bloomberg report from the often reliable Mark Gurman details two major changes that could be on the horizon for Apple's upcoming smartphone. The only one that has a slight curvature is the iPhone X.

According to the report, the gesture technology would be able to determine the distance of the finger from the handset, presumably using depth sensing tech akin to that's used in Face ID.

The information about Apple's new endeavor to come up with curved displays also seemingly confirms previous rumors that the tech giant will not only continue using OLED for its next-generation iPhones, but also increase the adoption of OLED screens this year.

Apple did not immediately respond to PCMag's request for comment. They are rumored to have curved screens and feature touchless controls.

Apple is working on completely new technology for future releases of the iPhones. Still, other companies have implemented similar features in the past.

To access adequate OLED supplies for these new devices, Apple is expanding its sourcing from Samsung to also include LG Display, the people said.
