Apple to add touchless gesture control and curved display to future iPhones

If you think the bezel-less iPhone X was the pinnacle of what Apple can achieve in smartphones, you may be wrong. There is a new phone being released every month it seems like, and Apple feels the need to step their game up to compete.

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.

USA tech giant Apple is reportedly working on OLED curved display and air touch controls (gesture control) for upcoming iPhones, signalling a shift in its design control for future.

Gesture controls have been around in popular phones since Samsung's Galaxy S4, yet we haven't ever seen them in use out in the wild; probably because you'd look a bit like a Harry Potter film reject attempting to levitate or transform your phone. Apple is reportedly trying to develop a screen that curves "inward gradually from top to bottom" according to sources close to the situation.

And finally, Apple's exploring a technology that's similar to Samsung's Air Gestures, which lets users do things like flip through web pages by waving their hand. Even if it does, the people said, it would not be for at least two years. Even iPhone X's screen is slightly curved at the bottom, but it is nearly invisible to human eye.

Considering how long the company has been rumored to be working on a curved display, consumers should take this news with a grain of salt. If it's worth anything, though, my best guess would be us seeing the curved screen first.

Apple's touchless gestures will be different here as well. Apple is likely to use an OLED screen for the aforementioned tech as well as they are more flexible than the regular LCD screen panels.

If you updated your Apple Watch to version 39.0 on iPhone you may have noticed that your Instagram app disappeared.

One of the main reasons why last year's iPhone X launch garnered so much attention and excitement is that the device finally represented a new take on a smartphone design that, to be honest, had grown somewhat stagnant.
