This news was reported by Bloomberg.

If you're on the fence about the iOS 11.4 beta, allow us to take you through the best reasons to install it and the best reasons to pass. He predicts Apple will hit the $1 trillion market cap by the end of this year with a potential 350 million iPhone upgrades over the next 18 months.

Back in November, the USA's trademark office published quite a surprising Apple patent application. One of the current rumors is that Samsung is working on a foldable smartphone.

We can get behind curved displays as the likes of Samsung's Galaxy S9 and its Infinity Display present impressive screens that pleasantly curve around the phone's edges.

Flat phones could be replaced by bendy blowers in the next few years2. However, as 9 to 5 Mac points out, the app hasn't been updated in years.

It's no secret that Apple isn't the first to offer many innovations.

And who doesn't want longer battery life?

Authorities also say Raniere has been bankrolled by Clare Bronfman, an heiress to the Seagram's liquor fortune. The group was originally based in Albany, New York, but Raniere fled to Mexico previous year .

What use this sort of design provides is unclear, though iDrop News does note that the device is narrower than the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. The so-called "keypad screen" is hidden when the device is fully compressed. The Korean tech giant has also had success creating curved screens for its flagship phones.

By tracking the position of your eyes using sensors, it's possible to move on-screen objects around to make them appear three-dimensional.

For the most part the renders look more or less as you'd expect them to, and bring to mind LG's previous range of curved phones, the LG G Flex and LG G Flex 2.

"Apple is working on touchless gesture control and curved screens for future iPhones", Mark writes.

As for Apple's curved screen iPhone, it would have a curve that ran from top to bottom.

Apple is staying ahead of the curve by introducing features not found in competitors' models. Specifically, a Bloomberg report from earlier in the week claims that Apple has been prototyping a curved iPhone model created to stand out in a smartphone market where devices are becoming harder and harder to tell apart. Apple typically isn't expected to ship that product until at least 2020, which could give the company and its partners a chance to refine MicroLED and make it cost-effective.
