You're not insane: The Instagram app just disappeared from Apple Watch

Technology       by Nozair Hanif Mirza | Published

According to the latest report by Bloomberg, Apple is trying out new screen gestures to make iPhones stand out in future.

Apple is now experimenting with touchless control and curved OLED displays for iPhones.

The report specifically cites that Apple is testing an iPhone display capable of detecting gestures from finger movements without actually touching the display.

Both technologies are in their developing phases, however, consumers should expect the features to arrive in the 2020 or 2021 model years. Samsung is reportedly working on such a phone, codenamed the Galaxy X, for release in 2018, and earlier this year LG showed off a concept television with a display that could be rolled away entirely. The air gestures would seemingly allow users to simply hover over the screen to control it. You have screens with unbelievably thin bezels, screens that respond differently to the amount of pressure applied today. Although the new technology will not be used on the next generation of iPhones (which are rumored to drop this Fall), the company plans to implement the tech in the next few years. Google's ATAP research group has been working this sort of technology, too, through its Project Soli program. But Bloomberg's sources claim the iPhone's display will curve "inward gradually from top to bottom", which is very different from screens on Samsung's flagships, which have curved side edges.

Apple's arch-rival Samsung had previously introduced a similar feature called Air Gestures that let users pick up calls and surf through web pages by waving their hands across the top of the device. Of course, they've never done an inverted curved screen before, but considering Apple's doing it, they may follow suit. OLED screens can be curved or folded. It sounds like whatever Apple has planned for its upcoming handsets, however, will be more pronounced. After all, Apple's said to be sourcing most of its OLED technology from the South Korean giant anyway.
