Hate the iPhone X's notch? There's an app for that

Is iOS 11.11 Really Worth the Update

These two new iOS apps can (partially) remove your iPhone X notch for a small fee

Apple constructed one of the most handsome smartphones ever made in the iPhone X, but there is one glaring gap in its design, literally. Despite what appears to be a pretty blatant violation, Notch Remover managed to slip through by way of careless vetting, or Apple willingly allowed it. "Don't attempt to hide the device's rounded corners, sensor housing, or indicator for accessing the Home screen by placing black bars at the top and bottom of the screen", Apple instructs developers. Even the former has to admit that there's a market out there for hiding the notch no matter how much the firm wants owners to embrace it.

Notch Remover also costs $0.99 to install, while Notcho is technically free, requiring however a one-time $1.99 fee to remove watermarks for custom notch-concealing wallpapers. I couldn't find any confirmation, but it seems like this app would only apply to the home screen and lock screen. Notch Remover is compatible with a wide range of iPhone and iPad devices, but is clearly intended for the iPhone X. It doesn't actually get rid of the incursion, since no one can do that. It's essentially a software-enabled "bezel" that fills in the cutout areas with a black bar to give the illusion that the notch isn't there. But for those of you who can't seem to adjust, there is now an app you can download to make the adjustment easier.
