iPhone X Has One Small Problem
Early looks at the iPhone X are missing something little bit of every video and a chunk of many games. That’s because some coque iphone 5 gti content on full screen apps in landscape mode is covered by coque iphone 6 kaki the “notch,” or the coque iphone 5s gta black area at the top of the screen housing the front facing camera and sensors.
Why the notch Apple wanted to do amazon coque iphone 6 plus monster energy a bezel less display, but there’s no technology (yet) for putting a camera under a display. The Essential PH 1 phone has a smaller notch, but Apple just has more going on up there, with its dot projector and 3D face tracking technology.
Since Apple wanted to hide the iPhone X’s specs from developers until the last minute, coque iphone 6s astronomie third party app developers weren’t ready for the notch. But iPhone X doesn’t arrive until Nov. Don’t block it off, but also don’t draw attention to it, Cupertino says.
It’s a coque iphone se mario bros lemon of a coque iphone 5 homme coque iphone 5c dragon ball z sangoku “feature,” and the best Apple can do right now is to make lemonade. The split notch coque iphone 6 a pois is coque iphone 6 coque iphone 5 ps4 avocat a good place for coque iphone 6s bordeaux status information. In a game, for instance, it could display health or coque iphone 5 noir inventory data. On a video, the pause and fast forward buttons could go over there.
BGR’s Zach Epstein points out that the default setting for Apple’s video player actually coque iphone 7 transparente personnalisable has your video stop short of the notch, which is a good call. I’m sure app coque iphone 4 jolie developers will work around the notch.
That doesn’t mean it isn’t going to look weird, as iOS engineer aliexpress coque iphone 7 plus Cam Hunt notes. Fortunately, phones are coque iphone 5 red hot chili peppers used in coque iphone 5 en bois portrait mode most of the time, except when gaming and watching coque iphone xs louis vuitton videos. I really wonder if the notch will kill off other potential landscape mode uses.
Let’s Talk About the iPhone XI
The iPhone X really feels like a warm up for the thule coque iphone 6 iPhone XI.
The X’s Face ID is a great way to collect face data, which can then be used in augmented reality contexts. In a year, Apple will be an expert at processing depth maps using neural networks. Then it will be time to put coque iphone 5c vogue the dot projector and IR iphone 5 coque chat camera on the back of the phone as well, making the XI (or whatever it’s called) the most dynamic augmented reality phone around.
Maybe there are other technologies coming up which will reduce the notch, too way to get the sensors under the display. Apple is probably hard at work at this. While the X is the start of a new chapter coque iphone 4 minions for Apple, I think the notch shows there’s still a lot of work to do.
There’s still a month and a half before iPhone X arrives. Here’s hoping developers get to work.
