USA tech giant Apple is reportedly working on OLED curved display and air touch controls (gesture control) for upcoming iPhones, signalling a shift in its design control for future. Those familiar with the plans claim that if Apple continues to develop these new technologies for the iPhone, they likely will not make their debut for another two or three years.
Whether either of these features ever gets implemented into a single iPhone remains a mystery, so for now, all we can do is speculate.More news: Where to Find Vending Machines in Fortnite: Battle Royale
Apple likes to explore new possibilities with its iPhones, and if the latest reports are true, the Cupertino giant might be looking at some standout features for future iPhones.
Apple unveiled the new iPad at an event in Chicago touting its commitment to education.
The gesture support would allow you to place your finger close to the screen and perform certain tasks. While 3D Touch responds differently based on the pressure applied on the display, the new air gesture feature would work according to the proximity of a finger to the screen, a person with knowledge on the matter said.More news: ISIS claims responsibility for deadly attack on Christian family in Pakistan
On top of that, phones with screens that "curve inward gradually from top to bottom" are nothing new. So far, every iPhone model has used a flat display.
Although curved displays and touchless input may still be years away, greater use of OLED displays is expected this year. Assumptions are that Apple may not be ready to mass produce such iPhones for the next two years. In order to keep up with demand and also become less reliant on Samsung, Apple will also be sourcing from LG Display for upcoming models.
At this stage in the technology's development, few companies have yet produced commercial devices with microLED displays.More news: Boston could see more spring snow later this week
