As far as I can tell, I've put all the apple-touch-icon-*.png icons in the root public directory. The checker though is vague about what's actually wrong.

not enough information

faq only states that safari ignores overrides--not what this "mask icon" actually is:

mask only defined once

404 https://mydomain.com/apple-touch-icon-180x180.png

If under the "absent mask", the favicon checker noted the 404 above, I feel like I could make an action item. But for now, I suppose I have to manually research every error message's topics to see what they are expecting.

The mask icon and the touch icon (eg. apple-touch-icon-180x180.png) are two different things.

I feel like there is not mask-icon markup at all in your code, is that correct?

@InstanceOfMichael

Both of those are probably true. I'm suggesting the checker should be more explicit about what is missing and how it knows it is missing.
