More than a year ago, I published the iOS Design Cheat Sheet, a collection of useful data about iOS devices and things you have to keep in mind when designing something for iOS. Since the last update of my Cheat Sheet, a lot has changed in the world of Apple’s mobile devices. Designers now have to deal with a retina resolution iPad (aka. “The new iPad”), and a new 16:9 format iPhone 5.
Instead of a bulky PDF, the new Cheat Sheet is right here on this site. This way, people can find it more easily and won’t need to download anything if they just want to know a specific icon size. If you have spotted some wrong data or if you think there is something important missing, just let me know and I will quickly update the cheat sheet.
