How to Get Fast Wireless Charging on iPhone X and iPhone 8

It's hardly surprising that Axiem Systems and Cromulent Labs developed Notch Remover and Notcho respectively, but we'll admit to being a little bewildered by their approval and App Store publishing.
While the iPhone X is getting strong reviews, many fans are not happy about the notch, the big obstructing bezel on the top of the display which houses the cameras, sensors and speaker. It just masks it by placing a more traditional black bar across the top of the screen that then must be assigned to your wallpaper in the iOS settings.
Apple has made it pretty clear that it wants developers to embrace the notch, not hide it.
According to a tip revealed by accessory maker RAVpower, the upcoming official release iOS 11.2 will be the software update that will unlock faster wireless charging for the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X. The app is priced at $0.99 though, so individuals will have to shell out cash for the convenience of shielding the interruption from their eyes. With this app, the bar will appear on the phone's home and lock screens. Notch Remover is compatible with a wide range of iPhone and iPad devices, but is clearly intended for the iPhone X.
Now there is a way to get rid of it. The result is a black bar up top which blends with the notch to give a smooth interruption-free appearance.
The bluntly named "Notch Remover" app does it exactly what its name suggests.
