Apple is reportedly developing curved screens and touchless gesture control for future-generation iPhones.

Considering how long the company has been rumored to be working on a curved display, consumers should take this news with a grain of salt.

Citing “people familiar with the situation,” Bloomberg described a gradual arch from top to bottom—different from the distinctly curved edges of competitor Samsung’s Galaxy lineup, which use OLED technology.

Unlike the inflexible LCD screens covering older models, Cupertino’s latest iPhone X embraced the organic light-emitting diode, which can be shaped or even folded.

The 10th-anniversary phone does actually bend ever so slightly at the base, though the contour is invisible to the naked eye. It sounds like whatever Apple has planned for its upcoming handsets, however, will be more pronounced.

Tim Cook & Co. are also allegedly designing a control feature that would let users perform certain tasks by simply hovering their finger over the screen.

Sound familiar? Samsung in 2013 launched the Galaxy S4 with “Air Gesture,” which let owners move their hand over a sensor to scroll, browse, move icons, and accept calls without actually touching anything.

Both iDevice elements are “still in the early research and development stage,” according to Bloomberg, which tipped a wait of at least two to three years. That is, if the company ultimately decides to move forward with either enhancement.

Apple did not immediately respond to Geek’s request for comment.

Cupertino last week released iOS 11.3 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, promising the usual bug fixes and performance improvements, as well as a handful of new features.

Beta battery management settings are now visible on certain handsets; and Business Chat for iMessage is being tested with Discover, Hilton, Lowe’s, and Wells Fargo. Plus, iPhone X users can chat with friends behind four additional Animoji masks: lion, skull, bear, and dragon.

Qualcomm said that the court Fuzhou (China) granted the request of two preliminary injunctions against four Chinese subsidiaries of Apple. They were instructed to immediately stop the infringement of two Qualcomm patents by an unlicensed import, sale and offer to sell in China the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 and iPhone Plus X. Previously, these two patents were valid Chinese patent office SIPO.

“We highly value our relationship with customers, rarely turning to the courts for help, but we also firmly believe in the need to protect intellectual property rights, said don Rosenberg (Don Rosenberg), Executive Vice President and General counsel, Qualcomm Incorporated. — Apple continues to benefit from our intellectual property, refusing to give us a refund. These injunctions are another confirmation of the strength of the extensive patent portfolio of Qualcomm”.

The patents in question in this case, allow you to customize and change the size and appearance of your photos, and manage applications using the touch screen.

In China and other jurisdictions around the world are awaiting the decision of similar requests to cease violations of Apple’s other patents of Qualcomm.

Oops: Apple’s Squid Emoji is Upside Down

Silicon Valley has a habit of not learning from its mistakes.

The Internet made a scene early this year when Unicode revealed 157 new emojis—including something vaguely like a wheeled transport device, a backwards Deoxyribonucleic acid, and an anatomically incorrect shellfish.

Now, we all send texts featuring modern skateboards, right-handed double helixes, and 10-legged lobsters … and, apparently, upside-down squid.

On Wednesday, the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California tweeted the alarming fact that “Apple’s squid emoji is upside down.”

“Not even squidding,” the museum wrote. “The siphon should be behind the head. [Right now] it just looks like a weirdo nose.”

The muscular structure, located on the mantle, is used for respiration and discharge of waste, as well as locomotion. Water gets sucked into the mantle cavity, then pushed out of the funnel in a fast, strong jet. Its direction can be changed to suit the traveler’s route.

But no matter what, the siphon can not physically move from one side of the body to the other.

In Cupertino’s version, the cephalopod looks like Karl Malden.

“I noticed the error when I first saw the game but had some pressing ocean issues prioritized ahead of it,” Patrick Webster, social media content creator at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, said in a statement emailed to Geek. “[Wednesday] morning, a meme template with a penchant for biologically accurate emoji asked to use our Twitter feed for a quick PSA, and now here we are.”

The squid emoji was first introduced in 2016. But folks must have been too incensed by Google’s upside-down cheeseburger to even notice.

More than 70 new emoji were released as part of Apple’s recent iOS 12.1 update; iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac users now have access to characters with red, grey, or curly hair, more emotive smiley faces; and additional representations of animals, sports, and food (including a cream cheese-covered bagel).

There is no word on whether the squid issue will be resolved. Apple did not immediately respond to Geek’s request for comment.

The company Japan Display, which is Apple’s supplier as claimed, this month began to reduce the production of LCD panels for smartphones iPhone XR. This is because sales of this model were below expectations.

The reduction is approximately 30% compared with the November level. It will lead to a deterioration of the performance of the company, which was considering a contract with Apple to supply displays for iPhone XR as a lifeboat, able to pull her out of the strip in annual losses continuing for four years.

Factory Japan Display are already cutting production of iPhone panels XR and completely stop the Assembly for 10 days during the Christmas holidays.

Last month the company lowered its sales growth Outlook for the financial year ending on her in March next year, with 10-20% to 5-15%. Simultaneously lowered the operating profit forecast.
