What is the Point of This?

I deeply apologize for the extremely late article. I have been really busy these past two weeks doing other projects that I have been working on, but finally, I am here back with another article. Today we are looking at the iPhone X. The iPhone X has been in demand since the moment Apple released it back at the keynote in September. This has been a big jump for Apple as the sales for the iPhone X has been growing stronger and stronger day by day. The reason why all of this is happening is because of that OLED 5.8″ display. With no button, we get that full screen throughout the phone except for that small cutout at the top which features the Face ID sensors and front-facing camera.

It feels really weird adapting to that small cutout at the top and looking at the left side for the time and the right for your battery. Don’t you sometimes feel like going back to your original iPhone 7 or 6s you had a month ago or maybe a week ago? Well here is a weird solution to that.

The “Notch”

A developer on the App Store going by name Axiem Systems created a 99 cents app designed to help hide the notch on your iPhone X’s home and lock screens by adding a simple black bar on top of your wallpapers to better blend the notch and display making it hidden. This hit a lot of people’s eyes and has already made its way to the top of Apple’s App Store charts, rising to 14 on the Apple’s “Top Paid Apps” list and the top spot amongst utilities yesterday.

Although the app may look like it can solve the notch issue and prevent the iPhone X’s black bar from interrupting the display, it is important to note that this app only works on the home and lock screen. While watching videos and surfing the web, the bar will disappear and will automatically change to the regular display as it was before. For that type of fix, Apple will likely have to make more system-wide changes to its iOS software to create a black bar at the top at all times.

This may look a bit cool, but it destroys the whole purpose of having an iPhone X. After downloading the app, 2 weeks later it will become an app that is useless and takes up some storage on your phone. So personally I wouldn’t recommend downloading this app in the first place.
