Specifying iOS devices for a FileMaker Go project

We are specifying iOS device(s) for a FileMaker Go 18/19 project...

Apple seems to be selling 3 models of the iPhone 11

  • iPhone 11
  • iPhone 11 Pro
  • iPhone 11 Pro Max

We are considering buying one of these 3 models. We are therefore trying to figure out how much screen real estate we will have to work with.

From the Apple Web site we have

  • iPhone 11 = 1792‑by‑828‑pixel resolution at 326 ppi
  • iPhone 11 Pro = 2436‑by‑1125-pixel resolution at 458 ppi
  • iPhone 11 Pro Max = 2688‑by‑1242-pixel resolution at 458 ppi

Claris international has this support document that does not yet include the iPhone 11 series:
Using Screen Stencils to design iOS friendly layouts using FileMaker Go 14 or higher

Apple docs are out of date as well…
iOS Device Display Summary

There are two specification documents that we are looking to produce:

  1. A comparison of the 3 iPhone models listed above that contains both screen specifications and pricing

  2. A document that looks like the image below...

What is easiest way to Get ( WindowContentHeight ) and Get ( WindowContentWidth ) for these phones? (before buying)

Are the Toolbars and Menubars 44 each?

I always find this page useful for quick reference - The Ultimate Guide To iPhone Resolutions - and has the point sizes which is important, e.g. iPhone 11 and 11 Pro Max actually have same point dimensions, although Pro Max is higher pixel count/density (PPI).

Another thing that you can use for testing solutions is running the iOS SDK in Xcode Simulator for different models of iPhones as well as iPads...




…is a good site and up to date as far as I can tell.

I edited the post above updating the diagram above.

Here is a close up on one of the 4 possible portrait deployments.
