It's being reported that the Apple company is working on a few new cutting-edge aspects for the iPhone including the ability to use gestures to control certain features of the phone, as well as a curved display unlike any smartphone before it. It allowed users to see recent photos from their timeline, comment, and see Instagram alerts all from the convenience of an Apple Watch.
Samsung developed a feature called Air Gestures that allows users to answer calls and swipe through web pages by waving their hands across the top of the phone.
Apple has time to think about these things-sources say the technology is still at least two years out from being ready for consumers, and that is assuming Apple decides to go forward with it. The technology could be useful for augmented reality, which is where Apple has put in a lot of effort in the past couple of years.
Additionally, rumours of a second iPhone X with a larger 6.5 inch OLED screen being released later this year round off the report. Given Apple gets OLED displays from Samsung for its iPhone X, it wouldn't be too surprising if Cupertino's engineers ended up plonking a curved display in the iPhone 12, for instance.

The agency later faulted that spaceship's builder, Scaled Composites, saying the design should have protected against human error. Today's test puts Virgin back on track toward Branson's goal of shuttling paying tourists on short trips into suborbital space.
Apple is by no means the first company to consider curved screens or touchless gestures.
Apple has chose to cut down on the rigid flexible printed circuit board for upcoming new OLED iPhones, replacing the part with cheaper and less advanced multi-flexible printed circuit boards, according to industry sources on April 4.
Apple is also developing iPhone displays that curve inward gradually from top to bottom, one of the people familiar with the situation said. Changing the way that users interact with screens could offer something new on the market depending on how it's implemented.
iOS 11.4 beta also includes ClassKit, Apple's latest framework for developers to build education apps to support the new Schoolwork iPad app, which lets teachers assign specific assignments within apps. However, both seem to show that Apple is possibly looking for innovative ways to make the iPhone even better than before.
