Apple Developing MicroLED Screens for Wearables and AR

Screen Shot

FUTURE iPhones will reportedly have touchless controls and curved screens as Apple looks for more unique ways to make its handsets stand out from the crowd.

Bloomberg reported Wednesday on the new tech, but said both features won't be coming to iPhones for at least two years, and that's if Apple decides to move forward with either idea. Last year, the company has introduced its brand-new design strategy with the iPhone X.

The report specifically cites that Apple is testing an iPhone display capable of detecting gestures from finger movements without actually touching the display. Earlier iPhone models all had screens that measured between 3.5 inches and 4 inches diagonally, even as customers clamored for an iPhone with a bigger screen.

Previously debuting pressure-sensitive displays called 3D touch, gesture-based touchless controls seems to be Apple's next innovation.

Hover gestures have been a popular topic of experimentation among tech companies, with Microsoft having also worked on an implementation of them for its ill-fated Windows Phone platform.

The new iPhone is expected to be unveiled in September. This is more or less the same time frame the tipsters provided for the other new technology that they said Apple is developing: a curved screen. The report mentions that the technology will require the user to perform the gesture at a close distance to the display as the motion tracking system will be housed in the display panel.

Moreover, Apple is also working on a new display that will replace current OLED display. It isn't yet known when we might see this feature, but it could arrive in the next few years. Samsung has successfully been producing phones with curved edge-to-edge displays since the Galaxy S6 Edge made its debut in 2015.
