Apple Could Launch An iPhone With "Touchless" Gestures And Curved Screen

Once complete, users will be able to navigate their iPhones by merely moving a finger close to the screen without having to actually touch or tap it. While the tech company is known for releasing new iOS versions on a regular basis, sometimes as frequently as once a week, this latest update introduces several new features that users should know.

The air gestures on the Galaxy S4 let its owners check out photos or go down a scroll by merely using hand swipes at a distance.

However, Bloomberg reported that the two technologies are still in their early stages of R&D and that Apple could possibly halt the drive. The proximity of fingers to the screen will be taken into account for this new gesture technology.

Nielsen emphasized that the National Guard deployment would be "a partnership" with the border states and their governors. Those numbers continued to fall in the first six months of Fiscal Year 2018, according to statistics from U.S.

Although curved displays and touchless input may still be years away, greater use of OLED displays is expected this year.

Further, Apple is also reportedly developing iPhone displays that "curve inward gradually from top to bottom". At that price, we're talking just under 3x the estimated cost (IHS) of the display for the iPhone X. Even iPhone X's screen is slightly curved at the bottom, but it is nearly invisible to human eye. The air view mode allowed actions bearing an uncanny resemblance to Apple's 3D Touch System. Samsung is already working on a foldable smartphone, while Huawei is seeing increased success in Asia. 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. Google's ATAP research group has been working on similar technology through a programme known as Project Soli. Since faster computer processes consume more battery power, Apple chose to design iOS to maximize battery life over speed.

"Devices upgraded to iOS 11.3 are returning a new response that does not match Apple's documented protocol", explains Jamf product manager Michael Devins.
