Using auto layout has become almost required in the latest update of Xcode with iOS 8 if you want your app to render properly.

The previous versions of Xcode enabled a better fallback when you were not using Auto Layout, but that's no longer the case because of the new screen sizes.

You should follow the guides provided by Apple about Auto Layout and Constraints to adapt your Storyboard to be adaptive.


By searching on Google about how auto layout works, I'm sure you'll find some great tutorials and videos to help you understand a bit more how to fix this.
