So Apple just released new, full screen 11" and 12.9" iPads that we will need to support. Right now a build just centers on the screen using the old iPad screen size, leaving black space around the edges similar to how games were treated on the iPhone X when it was released.

I suppose we'll also need the new devices added to the block drop downs as well.

Thanks!

Only the 11'' device is new, right? There were two previous generations of the 12.9'' iPad Pro with the same resolution, as far as I can tell.

Yeah that’s correct, but the new 12.9 device is also a full screen one. I’m not sure if that means anything different  for Stencyl.

So the game looks fine on previous 12.9'' devices but not the new one?

I suspect that it might not, but thinking it over it might be fine. I'm gonna try a simulator test and report back. I only have the new 11" device.

Strange, I get this error when trying to use the new 12.9 sim:
Device type "com.apple.CoreSimulator.SimDeviceType.iPad-Pro-(12.9-inch)-(3rd-generation)"

But, the old and new 12.9 do have the same screen resolutions. Perhaps the new ones will be fine? The 11 is a new screen res though.
