Apple Reportedly Working On Curved iPhone Displays

Apart from the curved display, Apple is also exploring touch-less gestures for navigation.

Samsung offered similar gesture controls, dubbed Air Gestures, on its Galaxy S4 smartphone years ago.

Tim Cook & Co. are also allegedly designing a control feature that would let users perform certain tasks by simply hovering their finger over the screen. The only catch with the new features is that they won't be available for at least two years, according to Bloomberg. Based on the movement of the fingers, the iPhone's software would respond. Apple's design would require gestures to be closer to the screen than with Project Soli, the person familiar with the situation said. But unlike the Samsung, Apple's implementation of the curved screen will be different. However, the South Korean tech firm failed to make much impact.

Grieves finished with a career high 10 points, scoring a career-tying six goals and setting a new career high with four assists. The Bakers weighed in three fish for 18.12 pounds, including a 7.22-pounder that was second-largest of the tournament.

Before you can begin using the (sort of) new feature, you'll need to update your Apple Watch to WatchOS 4.3.

On the curved screen front, Apple is said to be working on iPhone screens that "curve inward gradually from top to bottom", contrasting with Samsung designs that "curve down at the edges".

"iPad is our vision for the future of computing, and hundreds of millions of people around the world use it every day at work, in school and for play". All iPhones released so far have flat screens with only the iPhone X's OLED screen having a slight near-invisible curve at the bottom. Both the new gesture control and display technologies are still in the early research and development phases. In the smartphone sector, features are often reported but aren't seen for a long time. This technology isn't exactly new as Sony and Nokia have implemented it in the past as a glove input option on their phones.
