Not sure how many of us that effects but does mean you need to make sure you apps are responsive to fit the different aspect ratios and have minimum size of 640x960. Don't think letter box scale will pass as it just renders a black bar.

Anyone had apps rejected due to black bands because of the different aspect ratios?
I've got an app for iPad2, that shows black bands on iPod Touch 4th gen.

I had an app that was made in 320x480. Was never a problem on the store for a year, did many updates.

My most recent update was rejected because of the black bars, so I had to go in and fix it.

Nice to know ArcadEd.
So for example, if I want to do an universal app, i don't need to do it at the resolution of the ipad3 for example (which is ram hell).
