Rumor: iOS 12 beta hints that iPhone X Plus will come with iPad-like landscape app design

Apple is considered to be the 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus bigger in store at the end of this year, and previous rumors say such devices will have a screen resolution of 1242 x 2688 pixels.

Now, Brazilian Apple News site iHelpBR has found evidence in the latest iOS 12 beta, which appears to confirm the resolution, and suggests that iPhone X Plus will support landscape mode like iPad… Despite the 5.8-inch display, the existing model iPhone X does not support landscape mode like iPad in the entire operating system but supports limited app interfaces in landscape mode.

However, the iHelpBR was able to force the iOS Simulator tool to run the iOS at 1242 x 2688 pixels resolution with iOS 12 and Xcode – rumor resolution of the iPhone X Plus. In doing so, it came to know that stock applications like calendars, contacts, and messages are already being optimized for a comprehensive landscape layout.

For example, in the Calendar app, you can now see the calendar on one side of the display along with your events on the other side. In addition, contact lets you see a contact card on one side and a complete list of contacts on the other.

Probably for most users, the messages support viewing all your threads on the left, and on the right a thread – like on an iPad and plus size iPhone.

“Apple released the fifth test version of iOS 12 for developers yesterday. To our surprise, when running the new build with the supposed resolution of the iPhone XS Plus, it was possible to view the applications in landscape mode as they are displayed on the larger models. That is, taking better advantage of the space of the big screen.”

The lack of more giant landscape layout has been complaining to many iPhone users, but it is a matter of concern that Apple is addressing this year’s 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus.
