I have used Asset catalogs in my app to set the launch images.
Under iPhone Launch image, I have selected the Asset catalog.
The launch images from the asset catalog are only used when the property Launch Storyboard is empty and no storyboard present under the Resources folder.
But when I want to upload the ipa file to itunesconnect, I get this error:
Error ITMS-90475: Invalid Bundle. iPad Multitasking support requires launch story board in bundle '<package name>'.
The only way to fix the error is adding the storyboard in the property and in the resources folder.
But then the launch images from the Asset catalog are ignored on all devices.
Right, so that all sounds like the expected behavior to me (:
- A launch screen **Storyboard** is required for iPad multitasking (Slide Over and Split View). See: https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/WindowsViews/Conceptual/AdoptingMultitaskingOniPad/QuickStartForSlideOverAndSplitView.html (hence your error).
- If you use the storyboard launch screen approach, then the launch images (in the Asset Catalog) are naturally **ignored** (because you provide a better launch screen in the form of the storyboard).
Now there is a way for you to explicitly say you don't want to support Slide Over and Split View (therefore not need a LaunchScreen.storyboard and keep using your launch screen images).
To do that simply enable the "Requires full screen" checkbox in your Info.plist.
Created attachment 17389 [details]
I'm using Visual Studio 2015 and don't have that option in info.plist (see attachment 17389 [details]).
I have now filed a bug for that missing "Requires full screen" setting in Visual Studio as Bug 44163. I listed a workaround on that bug for how to add the key by hand to the Info.plist file.
