Getting a Wallpaper to Hide iPhone X Notch
There are various types of wallpapers that make the notch almost invisible, which seems like eliminating the notch. There are mainly three different ways to achieve this step with its own pros and cons.
1. There comes an application called Notcho that can be used which contains the notch free wallpapers and you can use it to hide iPhone X Notch. But the problem with this app is that the wallpapers that it creates contain watermarks unless you switch to a paid version.

The steps to use the app are pretty simple: Just open the app and choose the desired wallpaper. If you wish to upload a custom image from your photos, just tap the import button. Tap ‘save’ to add a notch less copy of the image that you desire.
2. If you are technically strong and have access to Photoshop, you have the choice to make a notch less wallpaper using the PSD file. As you open the file, selecting the bottom layer, drag the desired image into the photoshop window and customize it the way to hide the notch. You can resize or recolour it and change the positions accordingly. But once you are done with it, save it as JPG and send to iPhone X.
After all the above two methods, be it using the Notcho app, using one of the custom wallpapers or making a new one using Photoshop, the next step will be to open the Photos app and select the notch-less image that you downloaded from us or saved from Notcho. Opening the desired picture, select Use as Wallpaper.
If you do not want your effect to be misaligned, make sure that you select Still option and not the ‘Perspective’ option on the wallpaper picker screen. Now there is no need to move the wallpaper around, you have to just select Set then choose either Set Lock Screen, Set Home Screen, or Set Both.
