Apple working on curved iPhone screens, touchless gesture control, sources say

You're not crazy: The Instagram app just disappeared from Apple Watch

This is why you might see future iPhones with touchless gesture controls and curved screens, according to a new report.

The feature shares similarities with the Air Gestures capability that Samsung Electronics Co.

Although the OLED panel of the iPhone X curves at the bottom, that's mostly hidden from owners of the device - the objective is exclusively to make the bottom bezel as small as possible, by having the necessary screen drivers "under" it.

The new report however says this technology likely won't be ready for prime time for at least another two years. Samsung has tried, but their smartphones are limited to a curve along the edges, except the curved smartphone launched in the past. The iPhone X's OLED screen curves slightly at the bottom, but the shape is mostly invisible to the human eye. A simple wave of a hand across the screen would let the user take calls and flip through web-pages. 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.

Bloomberg also notes Apple is working to curve the iPhone's display.

A Google unit is also moving forward with a similar technology codenamed "Project Soli". However, it was later discarded by the company due to lack of interest among consumers.

MicroLED technology promises to deliver even higher-quality images than today's leading display tech, the OLED (organic light-emitting diode). "Other reports suggest that the upcoming larger 6.5" model's display stack is to be supplied by LG.

If you updated your Apple Watch to version 39.0 on iPhone you may have noticed that your Instagram app disappeared.

Apple has been the leader in innovation ever since its inception. Both these features are said to be in early test and development stages and it may as well be the case that Apple may decide to put this on a halt.
