Apple Plans to Bring Foldable iPhone in 2020: Isn't that insane?

Tapping and swiping? How about a hover

Both iDevice elements are "still in the early research and development stage", according to Bloomberg, which tipped a wait of at least two to three years.

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 new Bloomberg report from the often reliable Mark Gurman details two major changes that could be on the horizon for Apple's upcoming smartphone.

We can get behind curved displays as the likes of Samsung's Galaxy S9 and its Infinity Display present impressive screens that pleasantly curve around the phone's edges. The iPhone X's OLED display has a slight curve at the bottom, but it is negligible. The proximity of fingers to the screen will be taken into account for this new gesture technology.

Bloomberg reported that Apple is pushing to apply this non-contact technology to the new iPhone, quoting multiple sources.

As for Apple's curved screen iPhone, it would have a curve that ran from top to bottom.

It is being said that Apple will be building this tech right on the screen instead of using a motion gesture controller on the bezels, something similar to what Samsung does to implement Air Gestures in its smartphones. This is one of a couple companies rumored to be in talks with Apple for future MicroLED display panel production on devices of several sorts. Even Apple's new iPhone X, which introduced new facial recognition technology and a almost all-screen front, failed to universally impress reviewers.

Apple's iOS 11.4 beta might be tempting, but most iPhone and iPad users are better off staying put on an official version of iOS 11. The Beta Software Program allows anyone with a working Apple ID to try pre-release software for free.

In the meantime, if your phone still needs a battery replacement, you can take advantage of Apple's time sensitive offer of switching out your device's battery for $29.
