    I'm not running iOS 7 beta on any if my devices so I had a question I don't see the answer for...

    For iPads running iPhone 5-formatted-only apps - when they appear in 1x mode, do they appear the size/height that they would on an iPhone 5? In iOS 6 they only appear the size/height of an iPhone 4 screen, even if they are formatted for the iPhone 5 screen.

    And if so, are they sized proportionately in 2x mode (so that, I'm assuming, there is a sort of letter boxing effect on the side)? Or are they only sized to take up the entire screen, height and width?

    That question seems more complicated than I'm trying to ask, so hopefully it makes sense.

    Screenshots would be nice if possible, too...thanks.

    There is lettering on all sides. They don't do the whole 1x, 2x anymore. More lettering on the side than at the top.

    Here are a few off the top of my head (all free, I believe):

    PNC Banking (iPhone 5 formatted)
    AppShopper (the new one, iPhone 5 formatted)
    Cedar Point (iPhone 5 formatted)
    Cedar Point Ride Watch (iPhone 4 formatted)
    CNN App For iPhone (iPhone 5 formatted)
    ESPN Scorecenter (iPhone 5 formatted)

    I'm having trouble finding iPhone 4-only-formatted apps...I know there is a game called Sway that is but it's not free.

    I thought I read that the Retina iPads still have the 1x and 2x option...?

    And is the letterboxing the same no matter what, or is there more on the sides for iPhone 5 formatted apps?

    Thanks!

    What does the PNC app look like in 1x mode?

    Interesting...it looks like it is the size of the iPhone 4 screen. I wonder why they wouldn't change that.

    Thanks for taking the time to take and post these.
