The touchless gestures would allow an iPhone to detect the proximity of a finger to a phone and perform a gesture without actually tapping the screen. Apple is also developing iPhone displays that curve inward gradually from top to bottom ...

Samsung now uses smartphone screens that curve, but its curved screens slope down at the edges, rather than from top to bottom.

Apple releases new versions of iPhones every year, topping themselves each time with the innovations introduced in the newer models. Rather than having motion sensors in the bezel, Bloomberg says that the display itself will act as a sensor and your hands will have to be much closer to the screen to register and use touchless gestures.

Bloomberg reported Wednesday on the new tech, but said both features won't be coming to iPhones for at least two years, and that's if Apple decides to move forward with either idea.

Fact-checking Donald Trump's tweets about the border, DACA
Those enrolled in DACA had pinned their hopes on Democrats, who had continuously promised to win permanent legal status for them. Proposed DACA deals crafted by lawmakers and rejected by Trump also were not open to new participants.

Apple has long embraced new ways for humans to interact with computers. The only one that has a slight curvature is the iPhone X.

It's worth noting that Samsung came up with a similar technology several years ago.

An Apple spokesperson has declined to comment on the leaked information regarding Apple's two new projects. To stay ahead, Apple needs compelling new features and designs. After all, Apple's said to be sourcing most of its OLED technology from the South Korean giant anyway. Samsung is already working on a foldable smartphone, while Huawei is seeing increased success in Asia.

For the forthcoming iPhone generation, Apple is reportedly releasing three sizes, with the largest to top the iPhone 8 Plus' 5.5-inch screen, with about a 6.5-inch screen.
