iPhone 5S not responding to “centered” and resizing images when it shouldn’t

Hi Geoff - Following up on our bulletproof button conversation from February. We figured out the line height issue for bulletproof buttons and Outlook, but are suddenly having weird issues with the iPhone 5S (iOS 7-8). It does not seem to be listening to “centered” alignment and full width images like the rest of the iPhones. We are not having this issue on Litmus. Could you please take a look and let me know if you think this is a code issue on our end or just the faux mobile display on your end? I’ve attached the HTML and share link. Thank you for your help!!

I took a look at this issue and it is indeed code based. I sent your code to my own iPhone to compare and saw the same problem. The iPhone will resize content to make it fit into the display window. Because each table in your email is only contained by the body tag and a center tag, it is resizing them independently. By putting a table just inside the center tags, I was able to make it resize the email consistently throughout. Here’s how it looks:

I have attached the code I used to create this test. I hope that helps!
