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?

Apple Is Said to Target Rear-Facing 3-D Sensor for 2019 IPhone .
Apple Inc. is working on a rear-facing 3-D sensor system for the iPhone in 2019, another step toward turning the handset into a leading augmented-reality device, according to people familiar with the plan. Apple is evaluating a different technology from the one it currently uses in the TrueDepth sensor system on the front of the iPhone X, the people said. The existing system relies on a structured-light technique that projects a pattern of 30,000 laser dots onto a user’s face and measures the distortion to generate an accurate 3-D image for authentication.
