Curved displays and touchless gesture control could be the next major changes to the iPhone.

The company's logo is seen outside Austria's first Apple store, which opens on February 24, during a media preview in Vienna, Austria, February 22, 2018. Both are said to be in the early stages of research and development which suggests that they may not arrive for at least a couple of years.

Apple did not immediately respond to PCMag's request for comment.

Apple has a number of new features in the pipeline for its upcoming iPhones.

There is no confirmation from Apple regarding the anticipated refresh of the iPad Pro model in 2018, moreso the expected new features following the hardware update. The 10th anniversary iPhone's OLED display curves slightly at the bottom though it isn't that visible to the human eye.

Until now, every iPhone model released has featured a flat screen.

United Nations Urges Israel To 'Reconsider' Cancelled Migrant Deal
By late Monday evening, Netanyahu wrote on Facebook that he was suspending implementation of the agreement for the time being. But in the hours that followed the announcement he faced growing calls on social and mainstream media to abolish the deal.

Bloomberg reported that Apple is still figuring out how iPhone users can control some tasks by moving a finger near the screen.

The new technology is rumored to be two years away from debuting to the public or if Apple is even interested in using it. Apple will implant the latest technology in the iPhone bezel instead of the display, which is similar to Samsung's Air Gestures. Samsung is already working on a foldable smartphone, while Huawei is seeing increased success in Asia.

That means users will have to keep their gestures close to the display for it to work.

The UN Security Council imposed new sanctions against North Korea
North Korea is already under a range of worldwide and United States sanctions over its nuclear programme and missile tests. In addition, 12 North Korean companies are accused of having participated in illegal shipments of oil and fuel.

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. What makes Apple's approach to the technology different is the fact that the tech giant would rely on sensitivity built into the display, rather than an external camera.
