Below are guidelines for handling icon files for iPhone-only apps, iPad-only apps, and universal apps.

 

Name Size PlateForm
Icon.png 57 x 57 Universial application icon
Icon-settings.png 29 x 29 Universial application icon for settings area. Alternative name: Icon-Small.png
Icon~ipad.png 72 x 72 iPad application icon. Alternative name: Icon-72.png Add some smaller (iPad doc: 64×64, other optional 32×32, 24×24, 16×16) custom icons to your project. See comments.
Icon-spot~ipad.png 50 x 50 iPad icon for spotlight search. Alternative name: Icon-Small-50.png iPhone OS trims 1 pixel from each side and adds a drop shadow. The actual size is 48×48 pixels.
iTunesArtwork.png 512 x 512 Universial application icon for iTunes App Store. Uploaded separately to iTunes. It’s included in the app bundle too, file name: iTunesArtwork. In an iPad application iPhone OS uses this image to generate the large (320×320) document icon if it is not supplied otherwise.
Default.png 320 (w) x 480 (h) iPhone/iPod 2, 3 portrait launch image
Default@2x.png 640 (w) x 960 (h) iPhone 4 hi-res portrait launch image
Default~ipad.png 768 (w) x 1004 (h) iPad. Specifies the default portrait launch image. This image is used if a more specific image is not available. Use full size template (768×1024) to design this launch image. The 20 pixels height statusbar is on by default and occupies the top of the screen, aka the 1004 rows vs. 1024.

Optional icons and images:

This image is used for right side-up portrait orientations and takes precedence over the Default~ipad.png image file. If a Default-PortraitUpsideDown.png image file is not specified, this file is also used for upside-down portrait orientations as well.
Default-Landscape~ipad.png 1024 (w) x 748 (h) iPad. Specifies the generic landscape version of the launch image. The height of this image should be 748 pixels and the width should be 1024. If a Default-LandscapeLet.png or Default-LandscapeRight.png image file is not specified, this image is used instead. This image takes precedence over the Default.png image file.

Note: If you don’t provide one of the listed optional icons, the system will automatically scale one of your existing icons to an appropriate size. However, it is strongly recommended that your application supply all the icons listed with specific sizes needed.
