A Realtime List of iPhone 5 Enabled Apps in the App Store

Now that the iPhone 5 has officially been announced, Apple is accepting iOS apps from developers that support both iOS 6 and the taller 4" screen of the iPhone 5.

A small and steady stream of 4" screen enabled apps are now making their way into the App Store.

Sister site AppShopper.com allows you to see a realtime list of these new iPhone 5 enabled apps using this "iPhone 5" search query. That url shows all recently updated iOS apps that mention "iPhone 5" in their What's New update description. There may be a few false positives, but the majority of apps listed are listing support for the new iPhone.

There are a relatively small number of updates so far, but the list will continue to grow as we approach the iPhone 5 launch on September 21st. Only a handful of games are compatible so far. These include Pangea Software's catalog including Enigmo 2 and Mojang's Minecraft - Pocket Edition.

I'm updating our apps to scale to 2272 x 640 to account for the next few iPhone versions...

(My app is a fertility charting app with a limited market, so I didn't bother to mention it here.)


The dig about me not getting any these days, and thus not having to worry about a girlfriend's fertility cycle, was totally unnecessary. Thanks.

We have an iPhone 5 update that we aren't submitting until we can run it on real hardware and test. It's just not worth the chance of a snafu.

Any chance Angry Birds will be updated for the 4" screen?

It wont change the game play nor change the fact that the game is boring

Regardless of wether you like (a) game(s) or not;

No, it won't change the gameplay, but will enhance the experience (greater view without pan/zoom). That's actually good.

However; there are some games where enhancing the gameplay could produce an unbalanced advantage; horizontal / vertical scrollers / shooters / platformers where you can see further ahead than the older versions. That's where the producers have to be careful when updating.
Not so much difference to FPS / twin sticks etc. aside from possibly more control placement freedom.

Really?!? You can't see the added benefit of a longer screen when it comes to Angry Birds? Of all the examples to use that's probably one of the worst ones you could have mentioned.

I'm looking forward to a taller Tweetbot. It'd be great to view more information on the screen.
