    Hey all,
    Does anyone know if an iPad on iOS 6 can run iPhone apps with the iPhone 5 screen size? Or is the iPhone on iPad simulator the same as it ever was, 640x960?
    Thanks,
    Nick

    Interesting question. I just tried running a test app I've been working on that supports the 4" iPod (and presumably the iPhone 5) and it comes up in 320x460 resolution.

    Then again, I have an iPad 2, not a 3, and both the iPhone 5 and the 5th gen iPod are both retina devices.

    Another reason might be that the iPad offers a 2X mode for iPhone apps, and 2X mode for a 4" display doesn't really fit on the iPad screen.

    Thanks. I guess it is either time to update xcode or go buy a new iPod.
