Look! iPhones Of The Future May Have Curved Screens & Gesture Controls

All in all, it failed to meet the wall street expectations. In fact, you might remember that Apple's legal battle with Samsung revealed that Apple prototyped a number of varying iPhone designs before deciding on a final form factor. Using OLED technology, the company might introduce a new device with a screen that gradually curves inward from top to bottom. According to the latest report by Bloomberg, Apple is trying out new screen gestures to make iPhones stand out in future. Sure, Apple has some pointless features in its repertoire like Animoji, but most of the time the company prefers to throw useful features into the mix rather than oddities.

4-Alarm Fire Breaks Out at Trump Tower in New York
The fire Saturday comes about three months after a minor fire broke out in a cooling tower on the roof of the building. The skyscraper was the primary residence of Donald Trump before he was elected president in 2016.

Curved displays and touchless gesture control could be the next major changes to the iPhone. Though it's unclear yet what would be gained by hovering the finger and not touching the screen. The touchless control feature essentially works as it sounds - allowing you to perform tasks without actually touching the iPhone's display. This technology isn't exactly new as Sony and Nokia have implemented it in the past as a glove input option on their phones. However, they are still under development, and it remains to be seen if they'll ever get out of Apple's R&D department. Google's ATAP research group has been working this sort of technology, too, through its Project Soli program.

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.

West Ham can not rely on other results, says Moyes
West Ham United manager David Moyes is hopeful that his side are very close to staying in the Premier League. We have to hope we catch them on an off-day and we perform well. "We have to try to give all ourselves".

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. Bloomberg noted that a curved iPhone won't release for another two or three years. Apple's current iPhones curve out slightly around its edges. "Other reports suggest that the upcoming larger 6.5" model's display stack is to be supplied by LG.
