ios - Why is my prototype cell background color not changing on the iPad simulator?



So I'm a little confused about why there would be any difference here..

I'm busy figuring out how to use split view controllers, and just messing around in my menu TableView. I changed the background color of my prototype cell, which was reflected by the iphone 6+ sim.

But when running on an iPad, the background color is just plain white. I don't understand what would cause this, since I'm just making the changes in the storyboard..?

Sorry for the image links, not enough reputation to post them inline (hopefully that'll change soon)

Note I am NOT running two simulators at once, that is a screenshot of two screenshots.

Change the background color of the content view of your custom cell instead of background color of your cell.
