Storyboard / Simulator formatting errors in Xcode 6?

My storyboard has the username and password fields centered, but they are cutoff when I run the simulator.

Here's a shot from Xcode... alt text

Note, I'm running Xcode 6 (Beta 6)

you will have to set some auto layout constraints in order to get them to be positioned correctly. You can try selection all your controls, then clicking the auto layout button that looks like a tie fighter ( |-O-| ) and selecting add missing constraints. sometimes xcode will get the constraints right, sometimes it wont. if it doesnt you will have to do it yourself.

alternatively you where you see the wAny hAny buttons you can change it so that it fits portrait, small form factor devices. (you have to use the grid control that pops up. its kind of confusing at first but you should be able to figure it out)

are you writing this in swift? if you arent using swift there really isnt a good reason to use xcode 6 honestly.
