The iPhone X (ten, and not 'ex') is finally here after a long wait. And many users have embraced its new design and software changes. Some are even still trying to fool Apple's Face ID to get the phone to unlock (even a kid unlocked his mom's iPhoneX).
There are others who are still not so cool with the wide notch that the company has added to their most expensive iPhone yet. And hearing all those complaints, Apple has allowed users to install apps that can hide the notch. By this we don't mean that the notch will magically disappear from your phone and give you extra, edge to edge display. But it only means that developers can shrink the screen from the top.
Here is how you can 'hide' the notch on your iPhone X without forfeiting your warranty, and damaging your iPhone.
To enable this, your phone need not be jail broken. These apps are official and can be installed by everyone. 'Hide the Notch' is available on the App Store for free for all users, and the way that it works is simple. The app helps you select your wallpaper and adds an additional black strip in the exact dimensions of your iPhone X top bezel. Alternatively, you can even try out 'Notch Remover: Hide the notch', another free app.
There are multiple apps that are turning up on the App Store that allow you to customise the wallpapers too. 'Notched' allows you add a colorful boundary to your wallpapers that curves around the notch to make it users believe that the wallpaper was custom made for the iPhone X.
The iPhone X notch houses a dot projector, IR sensors, the front facing camera, ambient light sensor, flood illuminator, a front speaker, microphone and proximity sensors.
