Notch on some phones may obstruct gameplay content when rotating the phone

Reproduction Steps

Devices tested on: iPhone 12 128GB (MGGE3LL/A) iOS 14.6
Roblox app version: 2.484.425477 (latest version on iOS App Store at the time of writing this bug report)

This only applies to phones with notches (I am unsure about Android but I am able to reproduce on iOS 100% of the time)

  • Join a game that supports both left and right landscape screen orientations
  • Rotate the phone to landscape with the notch facing to the left
  • Rotate the phone again so that the notch is facing to the right

Expected Behavior

I expect the black bar to be behind the notch of the phone so that it does not obstruct the content of the game that I am playing. similar to the image below:

This was taken on an iPhone 6 and it was like 2 AM so please excuse the quality.

Actual Behavior

The black bar that should be around the notch displays on the left side of the phone when the notch is on the right side.
