I see what you mean.

I had my resizing SW using a table that I just kept adding to as new models
were released. I gave up on that after the iPhone 14 pro was released. I now
use iphoneSafeAreaInsets(). It seems to work OK.

I will do some testing of one of my apps on the iPad Pro (11-inch) (3rd
generation) simulator.

Additional info:
I resize the stack to proportionally to the devices screen dimensions.
And that works fine on all tested iPhone simulators.
These differences are only on these two iPad simualtors.
