Apple could be considering iPhone 'hover gestures' and curved displays

Meanwhile, future displays could curve inward gradually from top to bottom.

Apple releases new versions of iPhones every year, topping themselves each time with the innovations introduced in the newer models. 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. Apple must have felt that the features weren't ready, however, and pulled the plug on the features for iOS 11.3 - a decision that falls in line with their new approach to development and software maintenance.

In the fourth quarter, Apple was responsible for about 20 percent of smartphone shipments following the launch of the iPhone X and iPhone 8, beating out second place Samsung and Huawei, according to IDC.

Apple's always been said to be working on new technologies to build into its lineup of iPhones, and today's report out of Bloomberg corroborates these rumors.

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

Turkey's Erdogan says Akkuyu nuclear plant investment to exceed $20 billion
At present, there are 450 nuclear power plants in 31 countries, while 55 plants are under construction around the world. The Akkuyu nuclear power plant will meet 10% of Turkey's requirements for electric power, according to Erdogan .

The feature shares similarities with the Air Gestures capability that Samsung Electronics Co. In fact, many were surprised that these two features didn't make the final release - especially considering they were a staple of a number of betas leading up to the final release.

Apple is preparing something new for its future iPhones.

Air Gestures, on the other hand, rely on a motion sensor in the phone's bezel. Also in the works alongside the new displays is a new gesture control feature. Apple's approach will apparently require the gestures to be closer to the screen than the search giant's.

If you didn't think the iPhone X was a substantial enough shift in terms of design, it looks like Apple has a more significant revamp in store. However, Apple's plans are significantly different concepts.
