Standalone app on iPad looks small

I have build a standalone app with exp build:ios. When it is run on an iPad mini, it looks like it is the same screen size as an iPhone. There are black bars on all sides of the app. This does not happen in the expo client.

How do I get a standalone application with the full screen size?

Hi there @remery - you need to have the following in your app.json:

"ios": {
    "supportsTablet": true,

Try adding that supportsTablet field, and then making a new build.

Yes, that was the issue. Thank you.
