Next iPhone May Have Touchless Gesture Controls and Curved Screens

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". This iPhone display would have a screen that curves inward gradually from the top to the bottom of the phone. Samsung has successfully been producing phones with curved edge-to-edge displays since the Galaxy S6 Edge made its debut in 2015.

Until now, every iPhone model released has featured a flat screen. Judging by the description of the display, the phone is likely to have a rather large screen and an OLED panel, given that only OLEDs can curve easily.

Apple has long embraced new ways for humans to interact with computers.

Aside from curved screens, Apple is also said to be working on a touchless gesture control technology for its iOS smartphones. Apple is also working on new screen technology, called MicroLED, but that's around three to five years away.

Apple did not immediately respond to PCMag's request for comment. But the issue for the firm this time around is that the iPhone X has been a lot less successful than the company had hopes. To stay ahead, Apple needs compelling new features and designs. Those are two big features that were missing from the HomePod at launch, but which Apple promised to make available via software updates as soon as possible. This new feature could integrate well with the already existing 3D Touch feature that senses the pressure of touch input.

Gurman, who's renowned for Apple scoops, compared the touchless control feature to Samsung's Air Gestures function for Android - which lets users answer calls and browse web pages by waving their hand across their handset. Google's ATAP research group has been working this sort of technology, too, through its Project Soli program. The iPhone X's OLED screen curves slightly at the bottom, but the shape is hard to detect. However, Apple's plans are significantly different concepts.
