It is also working on new features that would improve recent versions of the smartphone - including a curved screen and touchless controls.

Bloomberg reported that Apple is still figuring out how iPhone users can control some tasks by moving a finger near the screen. The iPhone X's OLED screen curves slightly at the bottom, but the shape is mostly invisible to the human eye.

You may have spotted curved edges on Samsung's smartphones, but they tend to curve down and away at the display's boundaries. 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. Two years is not far off.

The firm is also reportedly working on a completely new type of screen technology, MicroLED, and may also be developing its own chips to replace the Intel components in its personal computers.

But it probably won't make it on to the next iPhone X, which is expected to land in September. The report said that the iPhone display Apple is now developing detects finger gestures even without physically touching the screen.

The word is that Apple is aiming for touchless gesture control and curved displays.

Google is also working on technology using gestures through a program called Project Soli. And now, it seems that Apple has taken two uncooked features from Samsung's catalogue and aimed to present it in a presentable way.

The new videos were released in conjunction with the new $329 iPad, the first non-Pro model to feature support for Apple Pencil. A larger 6.5-inch iPhone will carry an OLED display.

With its competitors constantly adopting similar features and designs, Apple is looking to make future iPhones stand out in a market that is increasingly becoming more crowded.
