How does AIR display on iPhone X when fullscreen is disabled?

I do not own an iPhone X. My understanding is that a fullscreen AIR app (one that includes <fullScreen>true</fullScreen> in the application descriptor) will fill the entire screen, include the unsafe areas at the top and bottom of the screen (assuming portrait mode). What happens when fullscreen is not enabled (<fullScreen>false</fullScreen>)? Does it fill the entire screen, everything below the status bar (and thus below the cutout), or only the safe area? Does it behave differently in landscape mode?

I do have iPhone X, and have just updated two apps to use the extra area. Whether it fills the whole screen depends on if you have the correct splash screens included. I believe (at least it is the case with my app), full screen just hides the status bar items. With full screen off the app would still fill the same area, but the status items would be transparent on top of that part of the screen.

As I wasn't 100% sure of that, so I tested it, and it does work that way.

Hi, Colin,  I have tested it on iPhone XS, and the result is same to what you said above.I am trying to find out a solution that makes the app looks normal(not fullscreen, not "the status items would be transparent on top of that part of the screen"), but no solutions now... Do you have any suggestions ? thank you!

I'm not sure if that's a iPhone X thing or an iOS 12 thing. Either way, you could put something opaque on your stage in that area.
