Apple to cut down on RFPCB in new OLED iPhones

Apple is working on a way for you to control some tasks on a phone by moving your finger close to the screen, Bloomberg said. OLED displays are capable of being shaped into curves or even folded, unlike LCD screens, which were used in older 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. This iPhone display would have a screen that curves inward gradually from the top to the bottom of the phone.

Considering how long the company has been rumored to be working on a curved display, consumers should take this news with a grain of salt.

On Wednesday, Bloomberg Technology's Mark Gurman reported on the newest work being done for the advanced features and design aspects for the Apple iPhone.

Things We Know About the Discovery of CDC Employee Dr. Timothy Cunningham
Anxious neighbors formed search teams in effort to find 35-year-old Timothy Jerrell Cunningham who was last seen February 12th. After Cunningham's disappearance, police offered $10,000 as a reward for any clues regarding Cunningham's whereabouts.

A faulty connection in the RFPCB module was also cited as the key reason behind the so-called "frozen" iPhone X whose OLED screen would become unresponsive or inaccurate in cold weather. What makes Apple's approach to the technology different is the fact that the tech giant would rely on sensitivity built into the display, rather than an external camera. The curved iPhone display has been a rumor for a while now as its been in development but, now it is expected to be around two or three years away from implementation. Google's ATAP research group has been working on similar technology through a program known as Project Soli.

If you depend on your one iPhone or iPad to get through the day, you probably want to stay put on iOS 11.3 or whatever you're now running on your device.

Since Apple's launch of iPhone X past year, we have seen many rumours as to what the next device from the Cupertino giant might look like. That said, the renders below - like many concepts we've seen - are more fanciful and ambitious than what we're likely to see come from Apple.

Apple's current iPhones curve out slightly around its edges.
