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

Apple is now experimenting with touchless control and curved OLED displays for iPhones.

The touchless gestures would allow a user to perform certain tasks by moving a finger close to the display.

. The company has been sharing condensed informational videos on its new products left and right this past year, and the new, 6th-gen iPad with Apple Pencil support is no exception.

Both technologies are in their developing phases, however, consumers should expect the features to arrive in the 2020 or 2021 model years.

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.

Ferguson had been the 155-pound interim champion in McGregor's absence and remained the No 1 contender in the division. But Nurmagomedov then claimed McGregor had said NO to a last-minute fight against him when asked at the weekend.

With the iPhone X off to a weaker than expected start, Apple has been scrambling to offer better innovations in future devices. Unlike Samsung Galaxy S9's display, the display on iPhones will be curving inwards gradually from top to the bottom of the front of the phone. However, Apple's plans are significantly different concepts.

The iOS 11.4 update is live for developers those enrolled in Apple's Beta Software Program. Given that the latter is still at least three years away from production, there is a strong chance that more OLED displays will end up in more iPhone models aside from the flagship. The current iPhone X has an OLED screen that curves a bit at the bottom, but most humans aren't able to see the curve.

Apple is by no means the first company to consider curved screens or touchless gestures. The technology for this feature is not based on some motion sensor on the phone's bezel but it is built into the display seamlessly. It sounds like whatever Apple has planned for its upcoming handsets, however, will be more pronounced.

Apple has been working on their ARM-based processors now available inside iOS devices, the Apple Watch, and the Apple TV.
