How is it 2020 and I still have to turn my iPad 90 degrees to look at an iPhone formatted app? Surely someone got fired from Apple for not making this part of iPadOS. Sure you can blame developers for not pushing an iPad version of an app. But if the iPad is 100% capable of running the iPhone app, why can’t they just hard code a 90 deg display rotation on it. The pixel doubling option is a welcome feature, so I can see REALLY LARGE iPhone apps SIDEWAYS.

Cast your vote above!

Hmmm... it’s not like developers have had ten years to produce an iPad version.

Oh wait...
