Unfortunately, iPhone support for Wesnoth is still very much a work in progress and did not make it in for this update.

This is due to Wesnoth currently having poor support for smaller screens since TinyUI, a UI mod that used to provide this support, was removed during the 1.10 release cycle.

This was done since, at the time, TinyUI was barely used and a burden to maintain, which now means this support must be reimplemented from scratch. However, iPhone support is still planned, and will make it into a future update!
