Test iPhone apps in iPad?

In this post I’ll be covering few important things I think you should know if you decide to test apps made for iPhone/iPod in an iPad.

You can't replicate application interruptions (such as a phone call or SMS text) as easily.

To test iPhone app on iPad it must be iPhone-only app. Then you will be able to use the zoom capability (which doesn’t look nice btw). If you create universal app (which you should do) and test it on iPad it will switch to iPad views and you will end up with iPhone views untested.

You will not be able to test status bar (hidden/visible) if you are changing it. E.g. If you make the status bar hidden from “.plist” and run the app (made for the iPhone) on your iPad the status bar will be still visible.
