Apple introduced many firsts with the iPhone X in terms of design, features and technology. While it does impress iPhone lovers and Android fans as well, the iPhone X isn’t a perfect device. Among its problems pointed out, the top notch on the iPhone X isn’t visually appealing for some users. For those who seem bothered by the top notch, you can use this app to get rid of it.

The iPhone X features an edge-to-edge display design and Apple has made sure not to leave any space out. Up front where the ear piece and TrueDepth camera is located, only that portion has been left out. The rest of the front panel is occupied by the OLED display. Because of this the display extends to the left and right corners on the top panel. Here, the signal, battery and time icons are visible. It appears that users have complained saying that the top notch disappears into the background when using the iPhone X.
You can choose to get the top notch removed and make it uniform with a black strip using the app, Notcho. The app is available on App Store for free and is sized 17.4MB. Notcho’s description on App Store reads, “Not a fan of the notch? Want to hide the horns? Now you can quickly and easily create wallpapers that hide the notch on your new iPhone X.” ALSO READ: Google Pixel 2 XL Vs Apple iPhone X Vs Samsung Galaxy Note 8: Camera Comparison
What this app essentially does is that it turns the color of the wallpaper on top into black with the details still intact. So earlier you would have the wallpaper forming the top notch, but now you have a black strip giving a sleeker look. Notcho customizes wallpapers only for the home and lock screens. While running apps, the top notch will still be visible. It also comes with a watermark which can be removed with an in-app purchase of $2 (approximately Rs 130). You can choose from wallpapers available in the app, or pick on from Photos as well. ALSO READ: Apple iPhone X first impressions: When you have to control your emotions
