Today we look at the new iPhones, our reaction to them now that we’ve actually held them, and how we think the new display sizes will affect what and how we develop. We consider the nature of the iPhone 6 Plus, our predicted demise of separate iPhone and iPad versions of apps, our frustration with scaling interfaces on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and designing differently for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. We also talk about strategies for testing when you don’t own every device class, the problem of understanding iPhone 6 Plus design idioms without owning one, and how using these larger devices have changed our plans for the future.
Every month there are more great articles and content about the business of Mac and iOS development than we have time to discuss on the show.
