Apple Is Reportedly Working on Touchless and Curved iPhone Screens

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.

Both of these technologies are still under works and there's a high chance that Apple could ditch these in favour of something else.

The new videos were released in conjunction with the new $329 iPad, the first non-Pro model to feature support for Apple Pencil. All iPhones released so far have flat screens with only the iPhone X's OLED screen having a slight near-invisible curve at the bottom.

Bloomberg said that these are all in very early stages of research and might take two or three more years before consumers can start seeing these innovations in their iPhones; this is if Apple chooses to move forward with it.

Apple's iPhone X has an OLED screen that curves slightly at the bottom but isn't detectable.

Police said Holmes, 26, was in the vehicle with Damper, 25, and another man, when the woman began pointing the gun at the camera. More charges may be filed against the woman, but for now she is just charged with tampering or fabricating evidence.

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

To stay ahead, Apple needs compelling new features and designs.

A new Bloomberg report from the often reliable Mark Gurman details two major changes that could be on the horizon for Apple's upcoming smartphone.

Samsung already has a technology similar to what Apple is developing in its Galaxy S4, where users could swipe just above the screen to scroll a webpage or photos. The feature would be based on technology built into the display itself rather than via a motion sensor on the phone's bezel, like with Samsung's implementation, the person explained. Now, more than a decade later the company is planning to explore possibilities beyond touching glass screens all the time. With last year's iPhone X, they showed how a fullscreen display is done in style along with a modern biometric verification system.

The report also said Apple may be working on curved screens, which other phone makers including Samsung have incorporated into their designs.
