I'm a SUPER beginner to swift and Xcode (experience with C and Python), but I've been doing pretty good up until now. I've been building the layout for my app in the iPhone 8 simulator, but when I try and run it on different devices (with different screen sizes) I run into some problems. I've tried to use auto layout, and reduce the compression resisting priority on some things that I think should allow the layout to compress up/down and side-to-side no problem (only the elements with a lower compression resisting priority will change, allowing everything else to stay the same, and follow the same constraints).
My question is: is there any way to build a layout for each device/screen size (without auto layout)? I don't mind if it takes a long time to build a layout for every single device/screen size, and I don't mind making new ones when new phones and screen sizes (maybe another iPad split screen size) come out. I'm just having a lot of trouble with auto layout, and I'd like to know if there is a work-around.
