Latest Xcode 6 SDKs hint at possible iPhone 6 resolutions

08/19, 4:16pm

Three main candidates exist so far

A "plist" preference file in the past two Xcode 6 beta SDKs may point at possible resolutions for the iPhone 6. Specifically, the file is connected to the iOS 8 homescreen, and refers to a 16:9 resolution of 414x736. Because the iPhone SDK handles hardware resolutions through point values, actual Retina resolutions should be two to three times greater. That suggests that 828x1472 and 1242x2208 are possibilities, both of which would have enough pixel density on 4.7- and 5.5-inch screens to maintain Retina status.
