Apple said to develop touchless control, curved iPhone screen

Screen Shot

The Tame Apple Press has been reminding users that Apple has invented all the most important interfaces of the 20 and 21st century included the mouse, the touchscreen and probably the keyboard. The technology likely won't be ready for consumers for at least two years, if Apple chooses to go forward with it, a person familiar with the work said. 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". Similarly, the new touchless gesture will also take into account the distance of fingers from the screen to add some new and high-tech elements to the technology. Bloomberg noted that a curved iPhone won't release for another two or three years.

Apple's curved screen design is rumoured to take a different approach to Samsung's with a curve that extends from top to bottom instead of at the edges. The iPhone X's OLED display has a slight curve at the bottom, but it is negligible.

Know where dropped threat Chinese station
China's defunct Tiangong 1 space station hurtled toward Earth Sunday and was expected to re-enter the atmosphere within hours. Two crews of Chinese astronauts lived on the station while testing docking procedures and other operations.

In its report, Bloomberg notes that both features are only in an experimental phase and that they may not necessarily come to new iPhones.

The work comes as the Cupertino, California-based smartphone pioneer looks to make its gadgets stand out.

Apple is staying ahead of the curve by introducing features not found in competitors' models. One of the current rumors is that Samsung is working on a foldable smartphone. And the latest report says that Apple will follow Samsung by offering curved displays and touchless control on future iPhones.

Google is also working on technology using gestures through a program called Project Soli.
