Apple is experimenting with touchless gestures and curved screen iPhones

You're not crazy: The Instagram app just disappeared from Apple Watch

Meanwhile, the glass of iPhones is already curved slightly at the edges, but Bloomberg's report took things to the next level by describing an iPhone where the middle of the display is lower than the top and bottom edges. According to various sources, the gestures feature for the iPhone is described as a hover-like gesture system "by moving their finger close to the screen without actually tapping it". The chief rival of Apple; Samsung is known to be working on foldable phones for a while, and according to the head of mobile of Samsung, DJ Koh, the company may soon launch a foldable phone by this year.

Both the projects are in the early stage of development and are for two separate devices.

Samsung offered similar gesture controls, dubbed Air Gestures, on its Galaxy S4 smartphone years ago. So, we can say that we cannot see this technology in near future.




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.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Gurman indicated that the company is developing a new "touchless gesture control" and a curved screen for the future iPhone models. This is not the first time someone has worked on curved screens and touchless controls. This technology would be built directly into the display without the need for a motion sensor. 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. The touchless gesture control is said to add a new dimension of iPhone's display. The OLED screen in iPhone X is from Samsung but Apple has expanded its sourcing to LG for displays. Unlike Android's, mostly rudimentary face unlock - a glorified picture match - Apple crammed an IR blaster that made the shape and nuances of your face the unlock button.
