As Apple readies its next batch of iPhones and consumers are feeling less need to upgrade since the latest generation lacks significant new features, an insider has shared that two new additions could make an appearance within the next several years.

The report specifically cites that Apple is testing an iPhone display capable of detecting gestures from finger movements without actually touching the display. Users who use iPhone SE iPhone 7 was addressed to the gratitude and satisfaction by this update.

Both features are still in the early research and development stage and Apple could choose to not go forward with the enhancements.

The work comes as the Cupertino, California-based smartphone pioneer looks to make its gadgets stand out. It's the first iPhone from the company that doesn't feature a physical home button and has a display notch. Google has its own take on the tech, secretly experimenting with it within an initiative called Project Soli.

The agency had no prior history with the family, said Norah West, a spokeswoman with the Department of Social and Health Services. A neighbor Bruce Dekalb said, "I think that it's a little unusual that three of them left the vehicle and three of them didn't".

With the iPhone X off to a weaker than expected start, Apple has been scrambling to offer better innovations in future devices. Air Gestures were also implemented by Samsung years ago, where users could take selfies and perform other actions with just a wave of their hand.

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. Apple's approach will apparently require the gestures to be closer to the screen than the search giant's.

Samsung's Galaxy handsets curve in at the side edges of the display, so Apple would be able to differentiate with that approachAs Bloomberg points out, the iPhone X already curves in ever-so-slightly at the bottom of the display, but future iterations could see this become much more pronounced. However, Samsung's feature used a motion sensor on the phone's bezel rather than technology built into the display panel.
