Why My iPad 3 iOS 6 apps stores can't show the iPhone apps..

iPad (3rd gen) Wi-Fi, iOS 6

    Devices connecting to the app store are detected and the appropriate apps are shown for the device...for example, a Mac OS X computer will only display the Mac App Store apps, an iPhone will only display the apps that will work on the iPhone, an iPad will only display the apps that will work on the iPad, and in this case there are apps that work on both the iPad and iPhone so those apps are displayed but not the iPhone-only apps.

    I am having the same problem. I used to be able to choose "iPhone" when searching for apps. Even though the app is "iPhone only", you can still install them on an iPad. THey will just be displayed at a smaller scale.
