It’s hard to imagine how Apple could make the iPhone cooler after the iPhone X, but apparently, they’ve got a few tricks up their sleeve. The next iPhone could have a curved screen — and a whole lot of other really cool features — and just hearing the details about this possible device is making us so ready to order one when (and if) they’re announced.

Of course, new iPhones are typically announced in the fall every year, but there’s already buzz about what Apple’s next move might be. According to a report from Bloomberg, future iPhone screens could be curved inward from top to bottom, giving their trademark flat design a totally new look.

Oh, and there’s another big change that could be coming for the screen: controlling it via gestures, which means it would register what you want to do by moving your finger in the air, close to the screen, rather than actually touching it.

Yep, that’s right: In the relatively near future, you could be using your iPhone without even having to touch it. Whaaaat?

Reportedly, this new technology won’t be made available for new consumers for another two to three years, because let’s be real — this kind of advancement takes time.

And to think people thought the future would be all about flying cars. (This is way better.) The only downside to all of this is that we’re at Apple’s mercy, waiting for them to develop the product…but our fingers are crossed that more intel will be out there soon. We’re dying to know how this is going to work.

In the meantime, though, can we please just get a battery with a longer life? That’ll definitely tide us over ’til the iPhone’s curved screen is ready. Let’s just hope Tim Cook is reading this.
