Understanding iPhone 6 screen size in relation to text and UI element size
I'm hoping you can help me figure this out. I'm using an iPhone 5 and am planning on upgrading to an iPhone 6. I'm trying to choose between the two new models.
As we now know, the new screen sizes are 1,334-by-750 at 326ppi for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, and 1,920-by-1080 pixels for the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus.
Help me understand those screen sizes and resolutions in terms of how large text and UI elements will look on the new models, compared to my iPhone 5. I'm not talking about which device shows more stuff on screen, but rather, which shows text and UI elements in a larger size (not including zooming in).
Also: how do current apps work with these larger screens? Are they stretched? Zoomed? Black bars around the unused screen space for apps that haven't been optimized for the new screen sizes?
