Apple says new apps must support the iPhone X Super Retina display

Today, Apple informed developers that all new apps that are
submitted to the App Store must support the iPhone X’s Super
Retina display, starting this April, reports
9to5Mac
. This decision means iOS developers will
be required to create apps that accommodate edge-to-edge and
yes, the notch. New apps must also be built with the iOS 11
SDK.

Apple’s decision to include the notch has been a point of
contention for many, but it’s a design the company has
leaned into
. Over the past months since its release, it’s
become a recognizable feature for the device, helping to create
a visual identifier that sets it apart. Other companies have
even knocked off the notch, creating a whole segment of

derivative devices
.

Apple has not set a deadline for when existing apps must be
updated to these new guidelines, only that new apps must adhere
to them beginning in April.
