# Steps to reproduce
1. Add a image to the iOS project. For instance - foo.png, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org.
You must create all variations to get the bug.
2. Create an AbsoluteLayout. For instance:
AbsoluteLayout.LayoutBounds="0, 0, 1, 1" />
<Label Text="Hello, World!"
AbsoluteLayout.LayoutBounds="0, 1, 1, 0.5" />
# Expected behavior
Image covers the entire absolute layout, no blue color is visible.
# Actual behavior
In iPhone 6+/6s+/7+ we get the excepted behavior (to be honest, we got 1px blue rect, but I can hack it out).
In iPhone 6/6s/7 I get little blue borders.
In iPhon 5SE/5S/5- I got big blue border.

I was able to reproduce this behavior with the sample project I am attaching. Deploying the iOS app to different simulators results in letter boxing. However the layout is in fact using the correct resolution image for the device (@2x, @3x) so I believe this is a result of the Image.Aspect property.
By default Image.Aspect is set to AspectFit which preserves its scale so letter boxing can occur. However AspectFill will make the image fill the entire view which can result in clipping: https://developer.xamarin.com/api/type/Xamarin.Forms.Aspect/
Setting the Image in the attached sample project to use AspectFill made it fill the entire layout regardless of device.
