This tiny Java application generate all size of icon & launch image files with PNG format for various version of iOS.
Support iPhone, iPad and optionally supports Apple Watch, CarPlay, Mac.

alt text

To generate images, just drop original icon PNG file (1024 x 1024 pixels recommended) to the window and press "Generate" button.
Contents.json and scaled images going to be generated with appropriate filename.
For compatibility maintenance, iOS 6 icon can specify separately, but usually does not need to set for it.
Also icon and launch images especially for iPad can be specified. (If not set, same images as iPhone will be used.)

Optionally, Apple Watch, CarPlay and Mac icon could set separately, too. These are not requirement. You should set these images only when you want to generate.
*Icon for Apple Watch generate as 24 bits RGB PNG, without alpha channel.

The launch images are also optional. Square PNG file 2048 x 2048 pixels recommended.
The square shape is not a requirement, but it's easy way to generate universal launch images.

alt text

Each settings can be specified by using command line options. This means generating process can be automated by using command line options with no gui.

You can store settings to XML property file and load next time. Individual command-line options are stronger than XML property file.
From Ver 2.0, last settings will be restored automatically at the next startup. Settings stored to '' on window closing, this means the last settings will not be restored when executing by jar file from other directories.

Extra feature, generating @3x, @2x, @1x images from one PNG file. (drop/select multiple files are supported.)

alt text

From Ver 2.0, Image Set with Size Class is supported.

alt text

With 'Generate with Image Set' option, Contents.json going to be generated with scaled images.

*This application will not support "Brand Assets". (In other words, Apple TV icons are not supported.) Also will not support "Memory" and "Graphics" properties for Image Set. These are available with Xcode 7 or later.
