What is this?

It’s a bare-bones example that renders a fake MacBook notch in macOS. It combines AppKit and SwiftUI.


I saw where people were making these apps, but didn’t see any source code. Maybe someone would find this useful!

What does it do?

Not much. It’s not even pixel perfect! It doesn’t factor in the cursor either (e.g. letting the cursor “skip” over it).


  • Shows a notch
  • Stays on top of the Menu Bar
