I'm using 5.4 stable with iOS 8 support. I believe we are supposed to provide a 180x180 icon for iPhone 6 per the Apple HIG. Also, my understanding is we can supply static images for the 6 and 6+ OR a launcher file, i.e. a launcher file is NOT required and we can fallback to launcher images for the 6 resolutions. Please consider adding iPhone 6 launcher image support as some of us need to use this due to complex graphics.
FYI / Thanks
P.S just checked https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=22967 regarding iOS 8 icons so that may be moot but submitting this case for static image consideration.
If you switch to using Asset Catalogs, you can specify the @3x icons and launcher images for iPhone 6 and 6+ (asset catalogs support the use of static images, in fact we don't have support for vector images yet).
The Info.plist editor's icon pickers don't support the new image sizes because the plan is to push people to use asset catalogs since that is what Apple is doing also (and it's much simpler for us to support going forward as Apple keeps adding new image sizes).
We can look into supporting the new image sizes in the Info.plist editor, but my preference is to deprecate it in favor of Asset Catalogs.
(I've actually updated the New-Project templates to all use Asset Catalogs, although that patch did not make it into 5.4)
180x180 icon exist for iPhone 6 in Asset Catalog, content.jason file and
as per comment 1 closing this issue.
