This new report is now predicting Apple will continue to push the boundaries of technology and make the relationship between users and their device as seamless as possible.

The company is reportedly experimenting with curved OLED screens for its future iPhones, according to Bloomberg.

As for what touchless gestures are, the feature would let users perform tasks by moving their fingers without having to actually tap the screen.

An Apple spokesperson has declined to comment on the leaked information regarding Apple's two new projects.

Both features are still in the early research and development stage and Apple could choose to not go forward with the enhancements. As the iPad Pro 2018 uses the Face ID, the tablet is expected to get the iPhone X-like notch on the top portion of the display, where the TrueDepth camera sensors are placed. Given that the latter is still at least three years away from production, there is a strong chance that more OLED displays will end up in more iPhone models aside from the flagship.

We're expecting Apple to announce and release its new handsets in September this year. To stay ahead, Apple needs compelling new features and designs. But Apple's long-lasting distaste for curved displays may be going the way of its hatred of big-screen phones - which was legendary back in the day before the first Plus iPhone launched. A few years ago, Samsung rolled out a concept for its phones called Air Gestures for touchless gesture control, and has already had favorable outcomes from utilizing curved screens. Apple's design would require gestures to be closer to the screen than with Project Soli, the person familiar with the situation said. According to Bloomberg's sources, a touchless-gestures feature from Apple would use technology built into the display itself rather than sensing motion from a sensor on the front of the phone. 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. A larger 6.5-inch iPhone will carry an OLED display.
