Future generations of the iPhone could feature curved screens and touchless control features as Apple seeks to distinguish its flagship product in the smartphone market.
Bloomberg, citing sources with knowledge of the matter, reports that Apple is working on those innovations and — if it decides to implement them — could introduce devices with those features in as little as two years.
The touchless system, according to the report, would be built into the display itself and allow iPhone users to control the device by moving their finger over the screen without actually making contact.
A potential new screen, meanwhile, would curve slightly inward from the top of the phone to the bottom.
Although the world’s top smartphone makers unveiled new devices in recent months, each embraced similar tech features, such as facial recognition technology, advanced cameras and screens that extend all the way to the edge of the phone.
