Ionic lab and ionic view app rendering differently

My app looks fine in the ios section of ionic lab in chrome. But when I test it out in the ionic view app it renders differently. It’s missing a space at the top to leave room for the status bar, and some of the proportions seem smaller. What could be causing this?

(Left is Ionic View on iPhone 6 or newer, right Ionic Lab?)

“Smaller” would be because the screen is bigger - Ionic Lab still uses iPhone 5 size I think.
For the broken header, that is indeed not intended.

What is your ionic info?

Yes, sorry. Left is Ionic View, right is Ionic Lab.

here is my ionic info:

cli packages: (/usr/local/lib/node_modules)

@ionic/cli-utils  : 1.13.0
ionic (Ionic CLI) : 3.13.0

local packages:

@ionic/app-scripts : 3.0.0
Ionic Framework    : ionic-angular 3.7.1


Node : v8.2.1
npm  : 5.3.0 
OS   : macOS Sierra


backend : pro

Start a new app with ionic start - same behaviour?

My new app that I created isn’t appearing in the Ionic View app. I think there’s something I’m fundamentally doing wrong. Also I noticed that the date last edited in the Ionic View app is different than on the Ionic Framework website.

I’m doing this from a tutorial on Lynda. Maybe somehow my code is getting mixed up with the teachers code? I’m new to Ionic, I’m not sure where I should be looking for beginner/tutorial resources.

The “1 month ago” is a bug, the other stuff I have no idea, sorry.

okay, thanks for trying
