Move from notches and bezel-less displays, as Apple is bringing that will soon completely change the smartphone technology.
After launching its 3D powered facial recognition feature, now the company plans to take the experience to the next level. Apple will use 3D sensing to enable a multi-hovering experience and a bunch of new AR features.
The next-gen iPhone models are rumoured to come with a tri-lens setup which will help to enable AR features on future iPhones.
Control iPhones Without Touching

Apple has a patent application filed back in 2015 which states about the development of 3D depth mapping camera sensing.
The 2019 iPhone models will also come with a ToF (Time of Flight) sensor which will the upcoming iPhones to draw 3D structures and information on top of the real-world scenes in 3 dimensions.
Cheaper Macbook Air
The new upcoming Macbook Air will surprisingly come at a very competitive price point. The new Macbook is expected to come with a thinner body and all the latest internals.
The “low cost” Macbook will have a high-resolution Retina Display screen and contemporary Intel CPU. Reports suggest that it will be an all new model and will come with slimmer bezels on sides.
