iPhone X Apps Now Widely Rolling Out on App Store Ahead of Device's Launch Tomorrow

An increasing number of developers have updated their apps over the past few days with support for the iPhone X's new screen dimensions. We've rounded up some of the more popular titles below ahead of the device's launch tomorrow.



Apple has highlighted many other apps ready for the device in a "Great on iPhone X" section on the App Store, including Afterlight 2, Citymapper, Launch Center Pro, Netflix, Twitter, CARROT Weather, Wikipedia, and Yelp.

Apple has been encouraging developers to optimize their apps for the iPhone X for weeks, so there are likely dozens if not hundreds of other apps ready for the device. If you know of any others, be sure to share them in the comments section.

Also updated my app Only One ('https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/only-one/id681646403?ls=1&mt=8') and snuck in an optional notch hider (shhh.. don't tell Apple). It hasn't been tested on a real device yet, but I felt the notch would be a huge distraction to the game and generally any landscape app that I included it and you can judge for yourself!



Notch hider must be turned on in the game settings

Pays off big time to update your app. Getting featured can mean thousands or even tens of thousands of new sales.

I think Facebook is still working on updating the iPad Pro app in late 2019, we should see the iPhone X update no later than 2022.

Halide really is an insanely great example of UI design for X imo.

I really appreciate given the option to switch between a notched and notchless landscape mode as the user, and will probably give your app a try despite not hearing about it before. At least the user gets to choose where/when they have the notch if they like it or not rather than being shoehorned into it.

Granted, once Apple has discovered that you've done this they'll probably make you take it out unfortunately.

Glad to see Google Photos is on there. Will make uploading comparison photo shots a lot easier for me ;) .

Good list so far.

My apps are all going to be iPhone X compatible at launch as well. Our main flagship apps are already updated as of today.

Just search for "iCollect" on the App Store. Our company name. :)

I updated my app SpeedSmart this past Sunday with iPhone X support.

I think apps will get updated quite fast for the iPhone X, I don't think it will be like the iPhone 6 where it took devs a really long time to update.

Hopefully this time apps will update faster than they did with the bigger iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Since the point width didn't change from the 4.7" devices, it shouldn't be too tricky to update if you already support adaptive UI.


Lastpass has been undated as well, I prefer theirs to 1Password.
