Here's What the New 'iPhone X' Status Bar Looks Like [Video]

iPhone 8’s OLED display will have a cutout at the top to accommodate the camera, earpiece and sensors. Brazilian developer Guilherme Rambo has now discovered exactly how a rumored new split status bar will animate between all the various states it can take.

In one example, based on the leaked firmware files, connecting the device (iPhone 8) to a charger makes the power indicator on the right side of the split status bar disappear while the familiar charging icon swooshes into view and hides the WiFi and signal bars.

iOS developer Steven Troughton-Smith has discovered, using iOS Simulator, that iPhone 8 will also animate the split status bar when an app is recording or actively tracking your location, replacing the previous rather thick bars running across the top of the display.
Keep in mind that these are simulated animations so we’ll have to wait until iPhone 8 becomes official to see how it all comes together. What I’d like to know is how the split status bar will change when you use the device in landscape orientation, especially when watching movies or using apps that take over the entire screen.
