iPad development is not much different from developing for the iPhone. This movie shows how to turn an existing project into an iPad project as well as the reasoning behind why you might want to do that instead of only supporting iPhone in your applications. It also demonstrates how to create an iPad project when you initially create your project from a template.
- [Voiceover] If you've tested any of the apps…that we've made on an iPad simulator,…this is what you're going to see.…There's this letter boxing effect around the application.…That's because when we created it,…we set it to be iPhone only.…So let's go over to x code…and see one setting that we can change…to make it also an iPad app.…When you click on your project…in the project navigator for example,…this is called tables right here,…you'll then see settings for your project.…Make sure that you're looking in your target,…which should be the default setting…when you click on your project,…but if you don't see the same settings I have here,…just click this little drop-down…and choose your application target.…
So now we can scroll down here…in to deployment info…and what we want to change…is from devices only iPhone to universal.…This allows us to develop both for iPad…and iPhone at the same time.…So if you're planning to launch on both,…you can actually use the same storyboard file…both for iPhone and iPad.…That makes your life a little bit easier.…
