Apple Developing iPhone With Curved Display

According to Bloomberg, Apple is working on touchless screen interaction and curved screens for future models.

As Apple readies its next batch of iPhones and consumers are feeling less need to upgrade since the latest generation lacks significant new features, an insider has shared that two new additions could make an appearance within the next several years.

An Apple spokesperson has declined to comment on the leaked information regarding Apple's two new projects.

Apple has a number of new features in the pipeline for its upcoming iPhones. A newer model of the original iPhone X is also said to be resized. In the meantime, Apple will evolve the technologies it delivered first in the iPhone X, and it will offer more display size and pricing options too.

Whether either of these features ever gets implemented into a single iPhone remains a mystery, so for now, all we can do is speculate.

Samsung now uses smartphone screens that curve, but its curved screens slope down at the edges, rather than from top to bottom.

Apple is working on a way for you to control some tasks on a phone by moving your finger close to the screen, Bloomberg said. Samsung is already working on a foldable smartphone, while Huawei is seeing increased success in Asia.

Bloomberg also reinforces rumors that Apple is planning on releasing another iPhone with the iPhone X's OLED display later this year. 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.

To access adequate OLED supplies for these new devices, Apple is expanding its sourcing from Samsung to also include LG Display, the people said.
