Apple Reportedly Works On Touchless Control And Curved IPhone Screen

While we're still getting the hang of Apple's new gesture interface on the iPhone X, Apple is apparently working on an entirely new kind of phone with a touchless gesture-based input.

Secondly, Apple is also working on an iPhone display that curves inwards gradually from top to bottom.

It's unclear if Apple sees any additional benefit in ergonomics by going a different direction with its curves, or this is simply a measure meant to preemptively stop people from saying it copied Samsung.

Steven Smith accepts CA sanctions, will not appeal
Warner's lawyers have reportedly requested evidence gathered during CA's investigation after the scandal surfaced. He added: "I think Australia cried with Steve Smith last Thursday, I certainly did".

OLED, or organic light emitting diode, displays can be shaped into curves or even folded, unlike the less-flexible LCD screen technology used in prior iPhones. A larger 6.5-inch iPhone will carry an OLED display. Bloomberg also reiterates its belief that Apple's microLED display technology is three to five years away.

"Both features are still in the early research and development stage and Apple could choose to not go forward with the enhancements", Bloomberg notes. An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment.

Apple knows the smartphone market is becoming more crowded and homogenous, and the company wants to make its iPhones stand out. Potentially, this might be meant to serve a similar goal as the 3D Touch feature that Apple has been including in iPhones since 2015. Apple's implementation does not require a motion sensor though.

German prosecutors request Puigdemont's extradition
Asked about the decision at a news conference in Algiers, Rajoy said Spain would respect the decision of German courts. The Catalans say they will not get a fair trial in Spain and are being prosecuted for their political beliefs.

Technology changes faster than most of us can keep up. While the battery management feature was the primary draw of the update, we also saw the addition of other features like iMessage for Businesses and the addition of new Animoji.

Those familiar with Samsung's Galaxy line will likely remember that the South Korean manufacturer has played with simple hand gesture controls in the past, most notably with the Galaxy S4 and S6.

Viral condom-snorting challenge is risky
Most of the 152 incidents involving condoms - 107 cases, to be exact - were related to ingestion, according to the statistics. As Kens5 puts it, "There is a fine line between bravery and stupidity, but the line isn't so fine when people snort condoms".
