How to place content outside the safe area

By default your SwiftUI views will mostly stay inside the safe area – it will go to the bottom of the screen, but it won’t go near any notch at the top of the device.

If you want to change that – if you want your view to be truly full screen, even if that means being partly obscured by a notch or other hardware cut outs – then you should use the edgesIgnoringSafeArea() modifier.

For example, this creates a red text view that asks to fill all available space, then sets it to ignore any safe areas so that it goes truly edge to edge.

Text("Hello World")
    .frame(minWidth: 0, maxWidth: .infinity, minHeight: 0, maxHeight: .infinity)
    .background(Color.red)
    .edgesIgnoringSafeArea(.all)
