Xcode 6 Allows Testing of Apps for “Resizable” iPhone and iPad Screens

Apple released the beta of Xcode 6 to developers on Monday at its Worldwide Developers Conference, and it didn’t take long for developers to notice the new option to size apps for 2 new devices, referred to only as “Resizable iPhone” and “Resizable iPad.”

MacRumors:

The options are likely to enable developers to start developing apps that fit on the rumored larger 4.7 and 5.5 inch screens of the iPhone 6 and, perhaps, the rumored 12-inch iPad Pro. Another photo of the Xcode simulator shows the difference between an app visually optimized for an older iPhone in what appears to be the resolution for one of the two iPhone 6 models. 

The resolutions of the purported 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models are currently restricted to rumor-land, as is any screen resolution for a 12-inch “iPad Pro,” however the new functionality will at least give developers an idea of what their apps will look like on any larger screened devices that may come down the pipe.
