Keep in mind; this is not a perfect solution and works only on the Lock screen and Home screen. So, the notchy won’t completely go away. Anyway, let me show you how to get it out of sight!

Step #1. Download Notcho on your iPhone X. It’s available for free.

Step #2. Now, launch the app. Next, you have the option to either use any of your photo from Camera Roll or use the images available in the app. I’m going to pick a cool wallpaper from the app’s library. Tap on the Import button.

That’s it!

Now, head over to the Home or Lock screen and check out; the Notch will be hidden. It won’t shout out loud for your attention. That’s for sure.

I know it’s not an ideal solution but still worth a try if you can’t bear with it.

Over to You…

The Notch has received both praise and criticism alike. Personally, I don’t find it that bad. The only time it seems to come in the way of my enjoyment is while watching media.

With most of the top Android smartphones already embraced it, you feel like living in a notch city. Hence, it doesn’t look so ugly as before.
