The screen curvature is reported to bend inward gradually from top to bottom, unlike Samsung phones which curve on the screen's left and right edges. Both projects are said to still be in the early stages and are at least two years away from consumer use. Two major differences would radically change the iPhone as we know it: a curved screen and touchless control. A larger 6.5-inch iPhone will carry an OLED display. In addition to normal touch gestures, iOS could detect when you hover your finger over the screen to trigger some actions. But one of the sources who spoke with Bloomberg said that Apple's implementation will rely on technology built directly into the screen, rather than a motion sensor in the bezel as Air Gestures does.
The work comes as the Cupertino, California-based smartphone pioneer looks to make its gadgets stand out.

Following that incident, Uber suspended all of its autonomous vehicle testing operations. "That's the world we're building". Krafcik declined to say whether he thought the crash was a setback for the industry or whether new regulations are needed.
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 has a number of new features in the pipeline for its upcoming iPhones. Apple plans to take similar tech in their own direction. It's the first iPhone from the company that doesn't feature a physical home button and has a display notch. There is a new phone being released every month it seems like, and Apple feels the need to step their game up to compete.
To access adequate OLED supplies for these new devices, Apple is expanding its sourcing from Samsung to also include LG Display, the people said.
