    I just got my iPhone X today. After a few hours, this slanted horizontal light gray bar has appeared at the top of my home screen. It goes away when you go into an app. It looks like some kind of error because of the way it’s slanted. I’d happily post pics but I don’t know how in the forum.

    It looks like it’s part of your wallpaper. Try switching to a different wallpaper and see if it’s still there.

    Yep that fixed it thanks. My old wallpaper just carried over when I switched to the new phone. But the gray bar isn’t in the photo itself that I was using as wallpaper on my 6 plus. So maybe it just wasn’t compatible with the X? No big deal either way. Just weird. Thanks again!!

    My guess would be that your old wallpaper wasn't tall enough, it was designed for the dimensions of your old iPhone and not the 19.5:9 aspect ratio of the iPhone X.
