iOS 6 Automatically Scales Up to Fit a Taller 1136×640 Display on iPhone
According to a latest note by 9to5Mac; Apple’s newiOS 6 easily scales up automatically to fit a taller 1136×640 display as compared to present 960×640 displays on iPhone as per their testing of Apple’s official iOS 6 simulator. This revelation is well aligned with the previous rumors and part leaks describing a taller display on next generation iPhone likely to be announced next month.
iOS 6 Vs iOS 5 : Screen Display
Thanks to some tweaks to the iOS Simulator application that is included in the iOS development tools, we were able to run the simulator at the rumored next-generation iPhone display resolution of 640 x 1136. We did this running both the current public release of iOS 5.1 and the upcoming iOS 6.0 The iOS 5.1 simulator displayed the home screen with a stretched set of four rows of icons. On the other hand, iOS 6 displayed five complete rows – as our sources said Apple was testing for taller iPhone displays.
It should be kept in mind that iOS 6 simulator to resolutions except 1136×640 never performs automatic scaling, with the software instead just evasion to an “iPad-like home screen layout” dissimilar from what we see for the iPhone. The examination advocates that there is something absolutely exceptional about that 1136×640 resolution; Apple has been working on an iOS 6 device supporting larger screen size, in any case.
