Apple shares tutorial videos featuring the New iPad and Apple Pencil

However, the technology will take at least two years to get fully developed if Apple decides to take it up seriously, stated a person familiar with the company's plans.

Talking about touchless gestures, it will allow users to interact with their devices by getting their finger close to the screen but not touch it. But where the Galaxy S phones come with curved sides, the Bloomberg report notes that Apple's future iPhone display will "curve inward gradually from top to bottom". It is the first non-Pro iPad model to feature support for Apple Pencil and is mainly geared toward the education sector, but makes a great, affordable tablet as well, especially considering the Apple Pencil support. The basic idea presented in posts like this one from my favorite blog Gizmodo (other than BGR, of course) is that Apple's touchless gesture control and curved screens aren't novel new ideas.

Samsung now uses smartphone screens that curve, but its curved screens slope down at the edges, rather than from top to bottom. Apple is also working on a new type of MicroLED screen, but this technology is even further away at three to five years.

Snapchat adds 16-person group video chat feature
Most famously, Instagram took, name and all, Snapchat's Stories, the 24-hour video diaries that disappear at the end of the day. Share Snapchat Stories with anyone: Users can now share Snapchat stories with anyone, regardless of whether they have the app.

So, what is Apple promoting as the headlines features of the new 2018 iPad?

Google is also working on technology using gestures through a program called Project Soli. This is pretty different from Samsung's Air Gesture feature that debuted on the Galaxy S4 a few years ago, where Samsung embedded a motion sensor to detect gestures from a particular distance. So, we can say that we cannot see this technology in near future.

The report also said Apple may be working on curved screens, which other phone makers including Samsung have incorporated into their designs. Samsung is already working on a foldable smartphone, while Huawei is seeing increased success in Asia. Last year's iPhone X borrows the tall, near-bezel-less design that Samsung championed two years earlier.
