You may be able to control future Apple iPhones without touching them

Apple has always found new ways to make its product stand out from the crowd.

APPLE is keeping mum about this year's iPhone 9 - but that hasn't stopped zany conspiracy theories about the phone from turning up. Today a new report comes from Bloomberg that suggests that Apple is developing two new pieces of technology for future iPhone models. Devices upgraded to iOS 11.3 are returning a new response that does not match Apple's documented protocol.

Touchless gesture control would allow end users to hover their finger over the display and still be able to interact with onscreen options.

We can get behind curved displays as the likes of Samsung's Galaxy S9 and its Infinity Display present impressive screens that pleasantly curve around the phone's edges.

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. Apple plans to take similar tech in their own direction.

Tony Finau says dislocation recovery was 'mind over matter'
He was scheduled to have an MRI exam Thursday morning, and if that went well, he wanted to keep his 12:42 p.m. tee time. Masters hopeful Tony Finau is remaining optimistic of competing after suffering a dislocated ankle earlier this week.

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

If you're itching to touch your future iPhone less and admire its curved display, there's some bad news.

Organic Light Emitting Diode displays, aka OLED displays, are flexible and can be shaped into curves or even folded, unlike LCD. The iPhone X's OLED screen curves slightly at the bottom, but the shape is mostly invisible to the human eye. The only catch with the new features is that they won't be available for at least two years, according to Bloomberg.

Both features are still in the early research and development stage and Apple could choose to not go forward with the enhancements.

Maybe you want to help Apple improve the software before it lands for the public.
