Notes

According to Apple's application guidelines, a tablet (iPad) application should not hide the status bar while a handheld (iPhone) application should hide status bar.

The above dimensions are assuming that you have chosen to follow this recommendation. If you choose a different path, then you should increase or decrease the image height based on the size of the status bar.

An iPhone app should include one launch image in portrait orientation; an iPad app should include one launch image in portrait orientation and one launch image in landscape orientation. This means that not all formats listed above are required.

Notes

  • The splash screen is rendered as a 16-bit image.
    • A known side effect is banding on gradient images.
    • We recommend using a solid colour background to avoid the banding.
