Use the following steps to enable the new high resolution displays for iPhone 6 (and Plus). To get it to break out of the adaptive mode, you need to force it to use a high resolution Launch Image.
- In Xcode, Click on your Assets file (Images.xcassets) in the left sidebar. It should open in the main pane.
- In the left sidebar of the main pane (where
LaunchImage, etc. are), right click
New Launch Image
- Add your new launch images as normal. If you want something quick and easy to use, Paul Haddad recommends taking a screenshot in the iPhone 6 simulator and using that, or @_DavidSmith has created some default ones.
- Change the
Launch Images Sourcefrom your Target’s settings.
Here’s a screenshot of the main pane where you create a new launch image file.
