 IPHONE NEWS

[Update] Here's a list of iPhone 5 and 5th-gen iPod touch games optimised to fill that new 4-inch screen

The full picture (Updated with a fresh batch of games)

Product: iPhone 5 | Manufacturer: Apple
 
iPhone 5 iPhone, thumbnail 1
As you are probably already aware, Apple will officially launch the iPhone 5 this Friday, with online pre-order stock in the US selling out in less than an hour.

One of the major differences between the latest iteration of Apple's smartphone and all previous iPhone models is the iPhone 5's new 4-inch 16:9 screen.

While this is a welcome enhancement in almost all respects, it does mean that some of the games in your iPhone library won't fill your new handset's screen.

When you boot up one of your beloved iOS classics on an iPhone 5, you see, black bars will appear at the top and bottom of the display.

Getting your fill

However, even though the iPhone 5 has yet to be released into the wild, some canny developers have already started updating their titles to ensure all 112,640 of those extra pixels are occupied with pure, unadulterated game.

To give giddy new iPhone 5 owners a headstart, here's a list of some of the best iPhone 5-compatible games currently available.
We will continue to add titles to this list as more and more games are optimised and updated for the iPhone 5.

So, check back to stay in the loop (no fifth-generation iPod touch accessory pun intended. I think).

Thanks for the list. I'm not getting an iPhone 5, but I did preorder the new iPod Touch, so this list will come in handy when jt's released next month.
