This wallpaper app makes your iPhone X’s notch disappear

  This wallpaper app makes your iPhone X’s notch disappear Tired of that odd notch on your new iPhone X already? Thankfully, there’s a fix – for the home and lock screens, at least. A free iOS app called Notcho comes with a bunch of wallpapers that feature a black bar at the top, so your phone appears to have a contiguous color display.

If you have a burning hatred of the so-called " notch " on your new iPhone X then boy do I have good news for you. Apple just approved an app called Notch Remover despite its urging of developers to embrace the notch by not masking it

The Notch Remover App is Now Available on App Store . A lot has been said about the iPhone X since its introduction several weeks ago, but the one thing that has taken up more column space than anything else is the unseemly ‘ notch ’ at the top.

If you have a burning hatred of the so-called "notch" on your new iPhone X then boy do I have good news for you. Apple just approved an app called Notch Remover despite its urging of developers to embrace the notch by not masking it:

Don't mask or call special attention to key display features. 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.

The app doesn't remove the notch per se, it just makes the notch invisible by placing a black bar across the tops of images that you must then assign to your Wallpapers in the iOS settings. Nevertheless, the end result looks like a traditional unibrow status bar, instead of the two brows currently found at the top of the iPhone X’s home and lock screens.

In practice, the notch isn't a problem in day-to-day usage, especially for people eager to justify their $1,000-plus purchases. So what's another $0.99 for a silly little app that fixes a silly little problem?

$1 Billion Apple Dream Fades for Irish Villagers .
For a tiny village in the West of Ireland, a meeting 5,000 miles (8,000 kilometers) away at Apple Inc.’s California headquarters confirmed some of its worst fears. Last week, Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar traveled to see Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook, with the iPhone maker’s long-delayed $1 billion data center in Athenry close to the Atlantic Coast, high on the agenda. Six weeks after Bloomberg News first reported that the project to build eight data halls was in jeopardy, Cook refused Varadkar guarantees that it would go ahead.
