Devs ponder iPhone 5 web design impact

Sebastian Green:

„It just goes to show, even the big companies will change things we all rely on. Responsive designs should not be dependent on certain screen dimensions. It is just more proof that designs need to be fluid in between their media query breakpoints so that they will work on any size of screen.“

Exactly. And that’s why I try to do as much as possible without setting too much breakpoints and just making a website fluid. And if I need to set a breakpoint it will follow my design and not any specific device. So my media query at for mobile devices doesn’t exactly match the iPhone’s screen size but is written to effect a wider range of devices.
