Apple reportedly plans iPhones with curved screens and non-touch gesture controls

  • The iPad Is The Best Tablet

However, arch-rival Samsung has been introducing those newer technologies before Apple, though in a slightly uncooked state - whether it is the bezel-less display or iris scanner-based security verification.

Bloomberg's sources have told them that the phone will detect a gesture without the user having to actually touch the screen.

The company is said to be developing a screen that lets a person control some phone features by hovering their finger over it, rather than tapping and swiping, according to Bloomberg.

Prince Philip due to have hip surgery
Buckingham Palace said in a short statement: "The Duke of Edinburgh has undergone a successful hip replacement operation". In June 2017, he spent two nights in hospital as a "precautionary measure" for the treatment of an undisclosed infection.

According to Bloomberg, these displays will gradually curve inward from top to bottom, where as every iPhone model in the past, with the exception of the iPhone X, have used flat displays. The company has been sharing condensed informational videos on its new products left and right this past year, and the new, 6th-gen iPad with Apple Pencil support is no exception. The upcoming gesture technology will be able to understand if a finger is close to the screen.

The other part of the report also isn't entirely new - we've heard rumors about the iPhone with a curved screen for years.

Both features are still in the early research and development stage and Apple could choose to not go forward with the enhancements.

Today, Attorney General Josh Shapiro and a coalition of 17 other Attorneys General, six cities, and the bipartisan U.S. Department of Commerce's alleged "unconstitutional and arbitrary decision" to add the citizenship question.

Both this and the curved screens are now in the early research and development phase at Apple, and thus it's not a given that either or both of them will actually make it to shipping products.

These two features will not arrive in this year's iPhones. The Korean tech giant has also had success creating curved screens for its flagship phones.

Although curved displays and touchless input may still be years away, greater use of OLED displays is expected this year. This new display is called dubbed microLED.

The police said that surging crowds resorted to heavy stone-pelting on security forces "compelling them to use force". An FIR into the incident has been registered and investigation into the matter set into motion, the police said.

Unlike the inflexible LCD screens covering older models, Cupertino's latest iPhone X embraced the organic light-emitting diode, which can be shaped or even folded.
