    Doing some experimenting and just noticed that when switching to 4:3 on the iphone the viewable area on the screen gets smaller... But this does not happen on the ipad mini.... Any ideas? image.jpg image.jpg

    Ipads are 4:3 ratio or square. Your iPhone is 16:9 ratio widescreen. Look at them side by side.

    Yes, the iPhone is still wide and the iPad is still (relatively) square.

    When you look at a non-wide image on a wide screen iPhone you are going to lose space. If you look at a wide screen image on the iPad you will also lose space because the iPad is square. I hope this helps!
