Be sure your site is ready for the newest iPhone
We’re all excited about the recent Apple iOS 8 and iPhone 6 release announcements, like everyone else. As expected, Apple introduced 4.7- and 5.5-inch devices and Safari 8.
Since the release of the first iPhone, Apple has been sticking to the 320 px screen width, and this has been a mobile resolution standard for many years. Now, the iPhone 6 will give you a 375 px viewport width. On the iPhone 6 Plus you get a 414 px width with a new pixel ratio of 2.6 (read more at http://mydevice.io/devices).
What does this mean?
The new generation of iPhones allows you to see more of a web page’s content than the older versions did. Moreover, websites optimized for the iPhone 6 Plus will look even more readable and beautiful.
Safari 8 also comes with a lot of new HTML5 features. You can check them out here: http://www.sencha.com/blog/apple-shows-love-for-html5-with-ios-8.
