Apple experimenting with touchless controls & curved screens for future iPhones

Apple working on'touchless control curved iPhone screen

The iPhone X's OLED screen curves slightly at the bottom, but the shape is hard to detect. This new feature would work by detecting the user's proximity to the screen to determine what the person is trying to do. 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. The screen curvature is reported to bend inward gradually from top to bottom, unlike Samsung phones which curve on the screen's left and right edges.

Bloomberg's sources reiterated that both features are still relatively early in the research and development phase, and Apple could choose to nix either.

Jury selection underway in Cosby retrial
O'Neill told the jury pool the trial could last more than a month, adding the panel would be sequestered in a "very nice" hotel. A second large group of potential jurors was also brought in Tuesday, in case the sides ran out of jurors from the first group.

An Apple spokeswoman, however, declined to comment on this.

Touchless gestures could be particularly useful on an iPhone however, given the limited space for physical or virtual buttons. And while Samsung and Google have debuted similar touchless control features, Apple's control system would still differentiate itself. To stay ahead, Apple needs compelling new features and designs. Apple's version would require gestures to be closer to the screen than with Project Soli and the tech would be built into the display.

Mixed martial arts: Holloway replaces injured Ferguson in UFC lightweight title bout
The UFC has tried to pair Ferguson and Nurmagomedov on four occasions, all of which have fallen through for various reasons. Interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson tripped and fell and ended up tearing a ligament in his knee.

Those familiar with Samsung's Galaxy line will likely remember that the South Korean manufacturer has played with simple hand gesture controls in the past, most notably with the Galaxy S4 and S6. It will release a second iPhone with that type of screen later this year; a larger model with a 6.5-inch screen, up from the 5.8-inch size in the current iPhone X. The company is also working on an update to the iPhone X's size and a new, lower-cost LCD model.
