Future iPhones Could Be Big and Curvy, More Sensitive to Pressure
While today’s iPhone is a thin, flat slab of glass and electronics, Apple is experimenting with some radically new looks.
According to a Bloomberg report, Apple is prepping curved screen models for next year that would feature, among other things, larger displays than found on the iPhone 5 and 5s.
Bloomberg said Apple is working on two curved models for the second half of the year, with screens of 4.7 and 5.5 inches — both larger than Apple’s current models.
The company is also working on new pressure-sensing technology that could distinguish between heavy and light touches, though that may take beyond next year to bring to market, Bloomberg said.
