3x vs 2x images

Hey Amit and hey everyone else. I was curious about the image files for this game. I have Xcode 6 now and I've used CGRectGetMidX and MidY for to put in a background image so I can begin the animation sequence. The image showed up centered, but because the simulator is now an iPhone 6 the background had empty space around it. what should I do? can you guys give us 3x images to downsize, or can I simply stretch the image to make it fit the screen?

background.size = CGSizeMake(self.view.size.width, self.view.size.height);

This was how I was dealing with it. It will come out a little bit disproportional, but it should make it the size of the screen.
