I understand Apple’s states reasons for the notch but still disagree with the decision made. That said, there is a potential software tweak that could make it much more acceptable and still quite functional: why not keep the notch areas always black (still displaying the same info up there but just always in white)? This way, the screen real estate is being used but apps always appear in a rectangle without the notch. At least give users the option. It would be like the functionality of the app Notcho but system wide.
