But we'll keep at it, with the latest rumours suggesting future iPhones could come with curved displays and touchless gesture controls, courtesy of a report from Bloomberg.

In a way, the touchless gesture controls will be similar to the 3D Touch feature that has been part of Apple's iPhones for the past few years.

Kristen Stiefel scored a run and had 2 stolen bases. "We're looking for it to be a big step in the right direction". The girls seem focused and ready to go. "I'm so excited about it", said Tate. "The kids wanted to work hard".

If you didn't think the iPhone X was a substantial enough shift in terms of design, it looks like Apple has a more significant revamp in store. Both these features are said to be in early test and development stages and it may as well be the case that Apple may decide to put this on a halt.

With the iPhone X off to a weaker than expected start, Apple has been scrambling to offer better innovations in future devices. Apple is reportedly trying to develop a screen that curves "inward gradually from top to bottom" according to sources close to the situation.

Johnson & Johnson sank $2.99, or 2.3 percent, to $127.72 and health insurer UnitedHealth dropped $59, or 2.6 percent, to $223.18. He noted that the USA hasn't entered a full-blown trade war since 1930, and trade relationships were much different back then.

Apple is by no means the first company to consider curved screens or touchless gestures. The feature would be based on technology built into the display itself rather than via a motion sensor on the phone's bezel, like with Samsung's implementation, the person explained. Previous tips concentrated on wearable displays due to their advanced need for such sharp, low-power, and low-latency display technology. OLED screens can be curved or folded. Besides what has been mentioned above, a separate report from Bloomberg last month revealed that Apple is also working on microLED screens in a secret manufacturing facility near California.
