The good news is that the screen of the iPhone 5 has gotten taller. The bad news is that many exicting iOS apps have not been optimized for it. Netflix has been troubled with this too and developers at the movie streaming giant have been working hard to fix this problem.
The Netflix app for Apple’s iPhone 5 has now been optimized to suit the taller screen as well as to work on iOS 6. While the iOS Facebook and Twitter apps were optimized from the day the phone was launched, Instagram optimized its apps earlier this week. Netflix is another leader to have made the shift quickly. It’s a lingering situation for users now, but one they are ready to wait for.
Apps that have not been redesigned to suit the larger screen would go into a letterbox mode.
