iPhone X Notchless – How To Hide The Notch On iPhone X

We have known the iPhone with a frame (called bezels) around the screen for the longest time. The new iPhone X is the first iPhone to be all screen. There is merely a little notch at the top of the display where the TrueDepth lenses are. This design evokes very different reactions, some love it and some hate it. If you want a notchless iPhone X there is now a quick and easy way to hide the notch.

How to hide the iPhone X notch

Open the link to the iPhone X wallpaper on your iPhone X. (The link leads to the twitter users dropbox.)
Press on the picture and then Save to Camera Roll.

Open your Settings and tap on Wallpaper. Now tap on Choose a New Wallpaper and choose the previously downloaded and saved wallpaper.

Now you have to pay attention to three things:

Tap on Save and decide where your wallpaper should be shown.
