How to hide notch on Android 10 on OnePlus 6/6T

OnePlus 6T

Chinese smartphone manufacturer, OnePlus, has a reputation for delivering the latest software to its wide range of devices, and not only to its latest flagships. After bringing Android 10 to this year’s 7-series devices, OnePlus has delivered Google’s latest offering to its 2018 flagship duo — OnePlus 6 and 6T.

As we all know, OnePlus has always been keen on delivering a near-stock version of Android, and OxygenOS 10 is no exception. A host of exciting features have been made available for OnePlus 6/6T users, and there’s hardly any room for complaints.

OnePlus 6-series devices come with an infamous notch, and users are generally keen on getting rid of it — through software tweaks, of course. It’s only been a couple of days since the release of Android 10 for the devices, and there’s already a tested plan to tame the notch.

  1. Thank you so much. Finally made it dissapear. Its still present on the lockscreen but at least the apps cannot use that space. I can’t understand why the normal settings push the navigation bar down now when you select hide notch…

  2. Ok, that mostly worked. But now when I have apps open there’s nothing at the top but the black bar. No battery, clock, or any notifications. So, still not ideal.
