Apple's working on curved iPhones with touchless gestures

Share

A new report purportedly coming from "people with knowledge of the matter" says Apple is working on bringing curved screens to its smartphones, a move which may happen in around 2-3 years. 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. The curved displays will reportedly "curve inward gradually from top to bottom".

Bloomberg reported that Apple is still figuring out how iPhone users can control some tasks by moving a finger near the screen.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment. According to Bloomberg, Apple will be developing its processors for the Mac as early as 2020, doing away with current Intel processors powering the product. A curved iPhone may be as little as two to three years away, the person said.

Apple's working on some groundbreaking new tech for its future iPhones to help differentiate the series from rivals.

Last year, the company introduced its brand-new design strategy with the iPhone X and, unsurprisingly, this year's models are expected to follow in its footsteps. For example, the Moto Actions feature enables users to turn the lock screen on and off by waving a hand, among other things. Google has its own take on the tech, secretly experimenting with it within an initiative called Project Soli.

That means users will have to keep their gestures close to the display for it to work. 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. 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.
