Meanwhile, future displays could curve inward gradually from top to bottom.
The new technology is rumored to be two years away from debuting to the public or if Apple is even interested in using it. Apple will implant the latest technology in the iPhone bezel instead of the display, which is similar to Samsung's Air Gestures.
Apple didn't respond to a request for comment Wednesday.
The phone, which, according to Bloomberg, is expected to take at least two years to arrive, will feature a curved display. The 10th anniversary iPhone's OLED display curves slightly at the bottom though it isn't that visible to the human eye. In addition to normal touch gestures, iOS could detect when you hover your finger over the screen to trigger some actions.

The Walt Disney Company could buy UK's Sky News
Fox bid two years ago for the 61 per cent of Sky it does not already own, following a failed earlier takeover attempt. Fox stressed on Tuesday that Disney would in any case purchase Sky News even if it didn't buy Murdoch's group.
Apple's always been said to be working on new technologies to build into its lineup of iPhones, and today's report out of Bloomberg corroborates these rumors.
In its report, Bloomberg notes that both features are only in an experimental phase and that they may not necessarily come to new iPhones. Potentially, this might be meant to serve a similar objective as the 3D Touch feature that Apple has been including in iPhones since 2015. Google has its own take on the tech, secretly experimenting with it within an initiative called Project Soli.
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.
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.
