iOS Question iPhone Sizes and Layouts

Hello Community,

today I was alerted by an user that an app that we developed for iPhone is showing some issues in the layout on an iPhone XS. We developed using an iPhone 8, but it's supposed that IOS should show almost the same design independent of the screen size (at least considering that the "bugged" device has the same category - iPhone 8 -> iPhone XS, both iPhones - I'm not talking about from iPhone to iPad, for example...) ... is there any way to test the layouts on different sizes of iPhone screen (without needing to have the device itself), considering that some designs are constructed at runtime (for example, customlistviews are created only at runtime... then its not possible to simulate on line the design as it requires to run the app)?
Is there any on line simulator where the app could be ran to check the screens building?

thanks!

This will not happen automatically.

You are expected to use designer script and anchors to make your layout adjust to the available screen size.

If you have a local Mac then you can create simulators of all models. Without a local Mac, you can run simulator builds with this service: https://appetize.io/
