Apple's Upcoming iPhones Might Come with Hover Gestures

Apple's Upcoming iPhones Might Come with Hover Gestures

According to the latest report by Bloomberg, Apple is trying out new screen gestures to make iPhones stand out in future. The touchless gesture control is something that's been implemented in Samsung phones already but Apple's design seems to work on a different principle entirely. Samsung has successfully been producing phones with curved edge-to-edge displays since the Galaxy S6 Edge made its debut in 2015. Similarly, the new touchless gesture will also take into account the distance of fingers from the screen to add some new and high-tech elements to the technology. He predicts Apple will hit the $1 trillion market cap by the end of this year with a potential 350 million iPhone upgrades over the next 18 months. Potentially, this might be meant to serve a similar goal as the 3D Touch feature that Apple has been including in iPhones since 2015.

That said, it's important to note that both these projects are tentative, experimental and many years away from actually shipping - if they ever do. In other words, it will allow users to navigate iOS just by waving with their hands above the phone. The screen would gradually curve inward from top to bottom.

Officials said a civilian was seriously injured and four firefighters suffered minor injuries. Crews were called to the 50 floor of the building on Fifth Avenue shortly before 6 p.m.


The purported curved screen, meanwhile, is said to be similar to the first device to have such a feature - 2013's Samsung Galaxy Round, which had a display that curved inwards toward its centre.

And even if it is much cop, would gesture control really be much use with phones?

On the 38th foundation day, apart from a function at BJP HQ in Delhi, a grand function was organized in Mumbai. Minister of State for Prime Minister's Office Jitendra Singh lamented that the entire session got washed out.


But every iPhone to date has used a visibly flat display. 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. Apple introduced pressure-sensitive displays with the addition of 3D Touch following the release of the iPhone 6s and the Apple Watch, though few apps take advantage of the feature in a way that makes sense.

Officials said the employee didn't give any money to the man, who then ran from the store. The suspect is still at Miami Valley Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
