New App Removes "Notch" From the iPhone X

New App Removes

As if making a U-turn, the tech giant has now cleared the Notch Remover, which as the name suggests, lets iPhone X users "remove" the notch.

After its release a bit over a week ago, Apple's iPhone X has already run into a couple of unexpected issues with some units being afflicted by a thin green line on the side of the display as well as impacts to touchscreen reliability when moving into sudden colder temperatures.

Customers who have picked up the latest model have also argued that the notch isn't actually that noticeable once you're using it. However, it needed to leave a gap at the top in order to house its earpiece and TrueDepth camera which enables its new Face ID feature. It's hardly surprising that Axiem Systems and Cromulent Labs developed Notch Remover and Notcho respectively, but we'll admit to being a little bewildered by their approval and App Store publishing.

Still, if you hate the notch that much, it's not a bad idea to spend $0.99 on an app to try and mask it. Unfortunately, neither of them works in apps or anywhere besides your home and lock screen. After making all these changes, your iPhone X ends up with something like an old school monobrow status bar, replacing the two brows now appearing at the top of the home and lock screens on the iPhone X. What makes it even better is the fact that you don't need o jailbreak your phone in order to make these changes to the display. "Don't use visual adornments like brackets, bezels, shapes, or instructional text to call special attention to these areas, either".

Getting that notch removed will cost you.
