Apple is working on new touchless controls for its upcoming iPhones

You're not crazy: The Instagram app just disappeared from Apple Watch

The first is support for touchless control, which the sources who leaked the project said will let consumers carry out some tasks by performing gestures above the screen without touching it. The firm is also reportedly working on a completely new type of screen technology, MicroLED, and may also be developing its own chips to replace the Intel components in its personal computers.

In the fourth quarter, Apple was responsible for about 20 per cent of smartphone shipments following the launch of the iPhone X and iPhone 8, beating out second place Samsung and Huawei, according to IDC.

Instead of curving outwards towards the edges of the phone, Apple is considering displays that have a concave curvature that slowly dips towards the center from the top and bottom.

"Devices upgraded to iOS 11.3 are returning a new response that does not match Apple's documented protocol", explains Jamf product manager Michael Devins.

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

Clarke welcomes investigation into police shooting death of Jamaican national
Police officials announced a new social media campaign, along with ads on buses and subways reaching out to victims. After the shooting, the officers can be heard frantically calling for dispatchers to send an ambulance.

A faulty connection in the RFPCB module was also cited as the key reason behind the so-called "frozen" iPhone X whose OLED screen would become unresponsive or inaccurate in cold weather.

So without further ado, below are a few curved iPhone concept images clearly inspired by Nokia's 8110 slider.

In addition to touchless aspects, there is also said to be a new screen design aspect in the works. One of the current rumors is that Samsung is working on a foldable smartphone. Those familiar with the plans claim that if Apple continues to develop these new technologies for the iPhone, they likely will not make their debut for another two or three years. 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. The technology would have a sensing capability that would identify when the user's fingers were close to the screen.

What do you think the advantages of a curved iPhone could be?
