Updating a ranch

Personally I’m not a fan of painted brick but I loved her solution: concrete stain.This is super easy DIY project to update a brick fireplace, and it only takes about an hour to do two coats AND complete the whole project.Any content or controls placed in corners may need to be moved, perhaps just inset, so they are not clipped by the i Phone X display’s rounded corners.As well, content or controls along the edges may also need an inset to help with gestures.A friend of mine recently bought a house and was desperate to cover up the eye sore of a fireplace in the corner of her living room.Luckily she’s an artist and was able to come up with a really creative way for how to update a brick fireplace, without having to paint it.Regardless, it’s wise to exercise your entire application, every screen, in every orientation—portrait; landscape right left; and upside down portrait, if your app supports it—looking for any layout anomalies.

For example, if you have a control along the bottom of your view whose bottom constraint is relative to the superview’s bottom edge, that control may now be obscured by i Phone X’s Home Indicator.

The display is 812pt tall, which is 145pt taller than the 4.7” display.

Note that content or background images created for the 4.7” display may not translate well to the i Phone X display, receiving banding or letter-boxing effects if images are scaled.

Ideally image assets should be provided as a PDF, but if you must use rasterized then include both @2x and @3x.

The display is 375pt wide, which is the same width as the 4.7” display of the i Phone 6, 7, and 8.
