Apps for iOS should support iPhone X’s screen from July




Developers who want to release apps for iOS or want to update their existing apps will be required to install support for the iPhone X notch screen from July onwards. Presumably all new iPhones that Apple releases this year have a notch.

Apps and updates can no longer show black bars on the iPhone X screen from July onwards. The full screen should then be used. Also, all apps have to be made with the iOS 11 SDK from July. Apple reports the requirements on its developer portal. At the beginning of this year, Apple already indicated in an e-mail to developers that apps should offer support for the notch per April . That deadline seems to have shifted.

From July not all apps will immediately support the iPhone X screen. Developers are not required to adjust current apps. Only if they want to update an existing app should there be support for the screen with the notch at the top.

Apple’s demand for new apps and updates reinforces the suspicions that the manufacturer will release more models with a notch on the screen this year. According to rumors, Apple is presenting three iPhones with notch this September; it would be a 6.1 “model with LCD and two variants with oled screens of 6.5” and 5.8 “.
