Curved Apple iPhone Screens Could Arrive by 2021

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.

Service Shazam can identify songs by “hearing”. In addition, it searches for music and videos. Interestingly, the app Shazam was one of the first in the App store. It is very popular — from the App Store it downloaded over 1 billion times.

Now Shazam shows ads, but Apple has already promised that soon the app will be completely free for all users.

Because the proceedings can take several years, Ireland has appointed investment managers, whose task will be to maintain the disputed funds from depreciation. This is to be achieved at the expense of investment solutions with low risk.

The Ministry of Finance of Ireland said that his appeal got priority and passes through the various stages of a private written proceedings in the Main court of the European Union (GCEU), the second largest court in Europe. Meanwhile, the European Commission intends to cancel the claim against the Republic of Ireland, initiated last year due to delays with the refund.
