Description Patrick Lind 2015-01-09 12:41:26 UTC
When I go into the properties for my iOS project in Visual Studio all of the Launch Image icons show requiring the following sizes:

Portrait - 768 x 1004
Portrait @2x - 1536 x 2008
Landscape - 1024 x 748
Landscape @2x - 2048 x 1496

In Xamarin Studio the size requirements show up as:

Portrait - 768 x 1024
Portrait @2x - 1536 x 2048
Landscape - 1024 x 768
Landscape @2x - 2048 x 1536

This makes it so that I am not able to attach the approrpriate launch images in Visual Studio.  I've verified that Apple's guidelines match the sizes in Xamarin Studio so something is wrong in Visual Studio.  Requirements exist here:

Hi Patrick, 
We no longer support editing icons on the Properties Pages or Info.plist editor on sync with Xcode8.3. The icons should be manage using the Asset Catalogs editor.

Thanks for reporting!
