Only on select iPhones?

    Does Apple still enforce the rule that your app must run on all members of a device class?
    By that I mean if you release it for iPhone, it must work on all current iPhone models, if for iPad then all iPad models
    and if Universal if must run on ALL current devices?

    I have an app that simply won't fit on iPhone5/6/7/8 models or Xs... it barely can be made to fit on 6/7/8 plus, XR and XsMax

    and its not a matter of scrolling, there is a minimum amount of stuff that must all be on the screen at any one time and it must be "big" enough to interact with

    my original plan was iPad only... but if I can somehow get part of the iPhone market that would be good.... but can I exclude those with less than a certain minimum resolution?

    managed to alter the UI to "fit" all devices..... it just barely squeaks in on an iPhone5, but its workable I think

    Before approving an app release/update, Apple team usually tests the app on an iPad.

    But anyway if it doesn't fit on an iPhone 6/7/8 then maybe it should only be released on iPad, or the UI/UX design is just wrong.

    You can't exclude a minimum resolution. It is all or nothing.

  4. I guess if you target for iOS 12 then you will set the lowest iPhone to be iphone 6.

    iPhone SE runs iOS12 and it only has a 4" screen

    Thanks.... after a few hours worth of design changes.... I now have a fully adaptive design that fits great on everything from an iPhone5 to iPhoneXs, from iPad2 to iPad12.9 .... might have been more difficult if it were landscape, but this is Portrait only so for this app that is not an issue. AND it works for iOS9.3 up to iOS12 so I got everybody covered except those with an iPhone4

    Is it 32bit & 64bit?
    If not, you don't cover iPhone 5 nor iPhone 5c.

    64bit.... as that is Apples current requirement.
