Snippet: Federal Judge Says Nobody Cares About the iPhone’s Notch ☇

Shared on October 7, 2019

Jay Peters for The Verge:

The iPhone’s notch may not be the prettiest thing in the world, but there’s now a lawsuit over it, which alleges that Apple’s advertised screen size and resolution for the iPhone X, XS, and XS Max count pixels that aren’t actually there due to the notch. A federal judge hearing the case, in an all-time great quote, thinks this may not be a big deal: “There doesn’t really seem to be anyone in America who seems to be concerned about it,” he said, according to Law360.

I would venture to guess that just about anyone who has even considered purchasing the iPhone X and newer is well aware that there’s a notch at the top of the screen where the various Face ID components go. Apple has had a few marketing photos that show black backgrounds that cause it to blend in, but in a majority of photos, it’s very obvious that it’s there.
