Look! iPhones Of The Future May Have Curved Screens & Gesture Controls

Curved displays and touchless gesture control could be the next major changes to the iPhone. Also, the new screens would curve "inward gradually from top to bottom", not along the sides like with Samsung phones, the publication said. According to a new report, Apple is now working on curved iPhone displays which may arrive in a couple of years.

Although the OLED panel of the iPhone X curves at the bottom, that's mostly hidden from owners of the device - the objective is exclusively to make the bottom bezel as small as possible, by having the necessary screen drivers "under" it.

Bloomberg's source said touchless control will most likely take at least two years to become available for consumers.

An Apple spokesperson has declined to comment on the leaked information regarding Apple's two new projects. The 10th anniversary iPhone's OLED display curves slightly at the bottom though it isn't that visible to the human eye.

In its report, Bloomberg notes that both features are only in an experimental phase and that they may not necessarily come to new iPhones.

Apple is preparing something new for its future iPhones. Apple's implementation does not require a motion sensor though. For example, the Moto Actions feature enables users to turn the lock screen on and off by waving a hand, among other things.

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.

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