It may be a case that the app is designed and developed in iOS 11 base. Launch storyboard or iPhone X launch image will help you to check the design elements in iOS11.

UI should display correctly and this can be done by verifying all the parts of the app. Verification of the parts of an app should include checking of the mispositioned, overlapped, incorrectly scaled, or clipped elements. It is the task of the developers of a Mobile Development Company to check for the issues and safe area guides should be used. Moreover, one should give extra attention to the layout margins so that the UI elements can be positioned correctly.

Simulator Help can be of ultimate aid when you make a check on the app for the various features. Sometimes, it is not possible to check for the app features easily if complex functionalities are integrated into the app.

●   Download Xcode 9: If you have not already done so. We are stressing on it because it includes the latest SDKs for iOS 11 and the iPhone X simulator.

●  Respect Safe Areas: What every developer should take care of is that he should know how to design the app while respecting the safe areas of the app. Content and the controls should appear correctly utilising the full-screen Super Retina display.

Conclusion:
