    If I try the flex tutorial, the view fails to maintain 100% height when switching between iPhone versions. Am I doing something wrong?

    Update: I guess it's because the "Frame relative to safe area" option is selected and dragging the view to full screen on the iPhone X puts it outside the safe area? So it's like, 110% of the safe area or something, and thus goes over the screen size when switching to iPhone 5?

    Anyways, I'm no longer a big fan of the relative-to-safe-area option. Also, the documentation on the Flex page is very confusing.

    you are right, the safe area of the iPhoneX doesn't reach the end of the screen, you can see the safe area for a particular device and window hierarchy by enabling the "Show Safe Area" option from Main menu - View - Show Safe Area, for example:
