πŸ’» Forehead - Hide the Notch and round the corners

94 ratings

If you enjoy Forehead, you will probably also like Vivid, which lets you double the brightness on your new MacBook Pro! Use code 'FOREHEAD' to get 10% off when you purchase a license for Vivid.

Apple announced the new MacBook Pro yesterday, and I can't wait to receive mine next week. I saw some people complain about the notch (I like it but tastes differ), so I made a little utility that makes the menu bar black so the Notch fades away in the background.

The app takes your wallpaper and modifies it to add a black bar at the top. It also allows you to round the corners of your screen if you're into that look!


  • Switch between your default wallpaper and a notchless one
  • Round the corners of your entire screen (similar to the rounded top corners on the new Macs)
  • Choose to start the rounding below the menu bar
  • Works on Monterey
