Is the simulator going to be updated with the new iPhone resolutions or is there a way to easily add them?

 

Thanks :)

You can add your own resolutions till they get added to the official release.

 

On Windows do this:

 

1. Go to this folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Corona Labs\Corona\Resources\Skins

2. Find a file 'close' to the device you want to simulate (I suggest using one of the borderless ones) 

3. Copy that file to your desktop.

4. Rename it with a suitable name.

5. Edit it and change the resolution

6. Copy it back to the folder from #1 (needs admin permission to do this()

 

Now start Corona and it will be in your list.

 

This update will persist even if you update Corona to a new version by installing over it.

 

 

If you're a mac user, find the folder containing this file: AmazonFireTV720.lua, then proceed as directed above.

Format your drive?  No.  You'll need to back up the file or re-create it.
