The iPhone X will be a reality in a couple of months when the first units of it reach the first buyers. While this is happening and while the iPhone 8, the new Apple Watch and of course the Apple TV with 4K support are being tested, developers are rushing to adapt their applications to the format of this new device .
When Apple introduced the iPhone X in its Keynote, it made it very clear that its innovative design brought with it a new format. This new screen configuration is marked by the notch at the top of the terminal screen , where the camera for the selfies and the different sensors of the terminal are located.

Apple wanted to make it very clear to the community that its intention is that applications take advantage of the screen size of this iPhone as much as possible, occupying each side of this notch of the terminal.
To do this, WebKit, which is the navigation engine behind Safari, wanted to provide a couple of guidelines for developers. In these steps WebKit shows how developers will be able to work with these openings without the iPhone X notch covering part of the content of their apps .
Of course, this opens up a debate among the thousands of applications that currently exist on the Apple scene, where many do not know what to use that screen space for. We will have to wait until the official release of iPhone X to see how the applications take advantage of all the screen space of this new model of iPhone , and all the uses that the developers will give to these openings.
