Next generation iPhones could allow touchless user input

Next generation iPhones could allow touchless user input

Alongside the news that Apple is reportedly working on touch-free iPhone controls, a recent Bloomberg report also indicated that the company is investigating using curved screens in its future handsets.

On Wednesday, Bloomberg Technology's Mark Gurman reported on the newest work being done for the advanced features and design aspects for the Apple iPhone.

This would let you perform some tasks with your iPhone by moving your finger close to the screen - without actually tapping it. Even Apple's new iPhone X, which introduced new facial recognition technology and a almost all-screen front, failed to universally impress reviewers.

As stated, both features are in early stages of development and it will be a couple of years before they see the light of day.

Oil Falls on Renewed Trade War Worries
The dollar index, which measures the greenback against six major peers, increased 0.36 percent at 90.468 in late trading. Crude stocks at the Cushing, Oklahoma, delivery hub rose by 3.7 million barrels, EIA said.

The feature shares similarities with the Air Gestures capability that Samsung Electronics Co.

Apple's iPhone X has an OLED screen that curves slightly at the bottom but isn't detectable.

Instead of curving outwards towards the edges of the phone, Apple is considering displays that have a concave curvature that slowly dips towards the center from the top and bottom. In other words, it will allow users to navigate iOS just by waving with their hands above the phone. But one of the sources who spoke with Bloomberg said that Apple's implementation will rely on technology built directly into the screen, rather than a motion sensor in the bezel as Air Gestures does. Ben Lovejoy speculated how curved screens could eventually lead to a foldable iPhone, which certainly seems more practical than this. That division - which includes the App Store, AppleCare, Apple Music, iTunes and Apple Pay - topped $8.5 billion in the company's recently completed first fiscal quarter, up 13% year-over-year. Apple launched a large-scale probe, which led to a temporary suspension at some parts plants. Alphabet's Google is also working on touchless gestures.
