iPhone X or "Apple is just the most annoying company of all time"

1. iPhone X has rounded corners and an annoying "tab" at the top and the
fact that there is no home button. Users will swipe up from the bottom to
get back to the home page. This may cause an issue for apps with buttons
towards the bottom of the screen.
2. Apps that have an edge-to-edge design will have issues with the rounded
corners. And the "annoying tab" at the top.
3. Developers sites recommend a "Safe Zone". <rant>("Safe Zone" Really??? I
feel I'm back to the 1960s when framing shots for NTSC CRT TVs")</rant>

LC should have a Stand Alone Settings option to use only the safe zone for
the X. There should also be a separate "show status bar" options for the X.
This will allow existing apps to render without clipping on the X. We also
need a way to specify ions and splash pages for the X. These items along
with Xcode 9.1 support is needed ASAP.
