Is there a little sign on the apps that shows us or do we have to download the app to find out!
all apps are compatible as far as I am aware of. The app will simply have "black borders" unless the dev of the app updates it. I could be wrong though
Ahh fragmentation. Just wait till 7 inch iPad is out.
Maybe OP was asking for a list of iPhone 5 OPTIMIZED apps (ready for the new screen). I'd love to see this too.
Nowhere near as bad as android
Im sure people can live with a little border till the apps get an update.
Maybe there will be an option for this in the store once iOS 6 is released on Wed
The rumoured iPad mini shouldn't have the same issue if John Gruber's theory plays out and the working resolution is the same (1024x768), just with smaller pixels.
what about apps that are already optimized for iphone 5. What happens if you try to use them on a 4/4s? any ideas?
Yes that was what i was trying to ask! I hope the main apps I use (facebook, bank of america, and a few games) are optimized for the new screen
Well, the logical thing to happen would be for the app to cut off part of the screen so it fits in the older phones.
Although it would be funny if they allowed apps to have optimized user interfaces just like universal iphone/ipad apps.
Wait, I think I have those backwards...
The app layout should adjust accordingly. I doubt that any devs are simply changing their app to the iPhone 5's resolution, rather modifying it so that it can stretch vertically to show more content when displayed on a taller screen.
In theory, apps should already handle height switching because of the tethering/in-call bar. But since very few handle that well, I guess the developers will have to update them manually.
