iPhone X’s new margins

Brian Voong on his excellent YouTube channel Let’s Build That App:

With the introduction of iPhone 10, we as developers are now faced with another option for our apps to be displayed in. Fortunately, Apple has provided us with the necessary APIs to get around the unsafe regions of this phone. We do this by using the new safeAreaLayoutGuide anchors in our code. Enjoy.

Great overview of the very easy to implement adjustments.

Side note: If you’re jumping into iOS development I highly recommend subscribing to this channel and going back through his videos. It is a trove.

So here’s a nice wallpaper for your iPhone X, OWNING the notch.

I am happy that I have to do very little to my app’s UI for it to work on the iPhone X. Apple has handled that well.

iPhone X leaked benchmarks match MacBook [Pro] speeds and destroy Android phones

That is impressive and remarkable.

I can’t believe Control Center, which I use somewhere in the realm of 100 times per day, has been relegated to a swipe down from the top-right of the tallest iPhone screen to-date. It went from a one-hand to a two-hand gesture.

iPhone X summary: wireless charging (with wire), all-screen display (with black bar) and sleek, flat shape (with camera bump)

I’m going to have nightmares tonight about that notch.

Long story short: embrace the notch.

In landscape the notch literally chops out part of the video. Can’t believe they didn’t indent it a little bit.

The iPhone X (10) looks terrible.
