iOS keyboard height on iPhone 6

Hey guys, on my app built in Xamarin Studio with Xamarin.Forms on iPhone 6 and 6+ I get a keyboard that is taller than other iOS 8 apps, like "Reminders" for example. Check both attached screenshots. How do I solve this? Is this a build issue?

On my app:

    Have you put a Default Image specific for iPhone 6 and 6+?
    If not, your app is in compatibility mode, and not really using the full size available on iPhone 6.

    To check that quickly, put a breakpoint on AppDelegate.cs, and check the size of UIScreen.MainScreen.Bounds. If it's 640×1136, you are in compatibility mode. If it's 750 × 1334, you are not.

  • Yes, that was it! Thank you.

    A future version of the template will include these resources by default. I presume you've found a way to fix it, but if not see iPhone 6 / Plus LaunchScreen or iPhone 6 / Plus Launch images.
