Notch you worry: the best iOS apps optimized for the iPhone X

31

The Notch and the Horns. While that may sound like the name of an English pub, the horns on the two sides of the notch can actually serve a purpose with their active screen area, believe it or not, and we don't mean simply showing the battery icon or network status. 

Apple sacrificed so many things to make the TrueDepth 3D face-mapping camera set on the iPhone X really good, that you might have already started wondering if it's all been worth it. First off, Apple was so certain that Face ID can work flawlessly, that it disposed of the home button and Touch ID finger scanner entirely to make room for a larger display. Ouch, that must be hurting the iPhone fans' muscle memory.

Second, since the depth camera and accompanying sensors can't be shoved under the display glass, Apple simply cut a piece of the iPhone X screen to fit the whole shebang in, forcing app developers into a scramble to overhaul their apps, and YouTube to try and fit videos around it. Notch you worry, though, as devs took the iPhone X design as a challenge, and started getting crafty designing for its notch-and-horns realities, that is why we stormed the App Store to show you some of the best examples for apps reworked around the inimitable Mr Notch.
