Xcode 7 iOS icon sizes overview. Since there quite a few iOS devices, it can be an extra challenging with all those different resolutions. Current Xcode (version 7), supports all iPhones since 4s, iPods and most iPads. You will need several different icons sizes. Thats what I will present here. A complete list of all different sizes for the different icons needed for an iOS application.

iOS icon sizes overview – 13 icons

iOS icon sizes

Just remember….

If you look at the picture above, you will see something like 29pt under the iPhone spotlight icon. First time I believed that was the icons size. And it is. But not i pixels. Above you see two empty icon windows saying 2x and 3x. That means 29 x 2 for the first window (58×58 pixels) and 29 x 3 for the second icon (87×87 pixels). Just multiply the pt value with x value, and you have the size in pixels. I usually create the largest icon (1024×1024), and uses photoshop (or any other image editing software) to make the smaller resolutions out of the biggest one.

Anyway, below you will find the list for the latest Xcode from when this article was written.
