While the use of such a scenario hasn't been explained anywhere, it's expected that Apple could be doing something to make a more immersive viewing experience for one of its iPhones in the future. The control feature would let iPhone users perform some tasks by moving their finger close to the screen without actually tapping it.
As per the report, a curved screen iPhone with touchless gestures could arrive in the next two to three years. However, unlike Samsung's curved edge displays on their flagship smartphones, Apple will pull the curves on the top and bottom. The technology likely won't be ready for consumers for at least two years, if Apple chooses to go forward with it, a person familiar with the work said. The iPhone X's OLED screen curves slightly at the bottom, but the shape is hard to detect. Both the projects are reportedly in their early stages of research and development.
The work comes as the California-based smartphone pioneer looks to make its gadgets stand out.
Apple is staying ahead of the curve by introducing features not found in competitors' models.

The new gesture technology will take into account the proximity of a finger to the screen.
Previously debuting pressure-sensitive displays called 3D touch, gesture-based touchless controls seems to be Apple's next innovation. Apple is known to be the trendsetter for new technologies in the market.
Bloomberg reports that the initiative "is still in early developmental stages", but is meant to bring Macs into the same unified architecture that allows all of Apple's other devices to work together "seamlessly". Now, more than a decade later the company is planning to explore possibilities beyond touching glass screens all the time.
Additionally, rumours of a second iPhone X with a larger 6.5 inch OLED screen being released later this year round off the report.
