make a project with splash screen images as part of the project
run on ipad 2 ios 10 simulator
splash screen is not displayed
the icon is just enlarged
Created attachment 18185 [details]
I have tried to reproduce this issue in the following simulators:
iPad 2 Sim using iOS 9.3 (there is no iOS 10 support for this device)
iPad Air 2 Sim using iOS 10
And I could not reproduce the reported issue, the splash screen shows up just fine. The attached test case contains every splash image supported in the xcasset editor.
Please include your full build logs, crash reports (if any), test case (to reproduce) and all version informations.
The easiest way to get exact version information is to use the "Xamarin Studio" menu, "About Xamarin Studio" item, "Show Details" button and copy/paste the version informations (you can use the "Copy Information" button).
Also please try the attached test case and let us know if you are able to reproduce on your end.
This is caused by the splash screen size in Visual Studio [ios properties -> ios application - Ipad Launch Images] (not the asset catalog) being incorrect.
If you add a splash image through visual studio the sizes do not tally up with the ones outlined int the apple guidelines shown here
Bug in Xamarin for Visual Studio.
To work around this bug I add the images with the size they require in visual studio then go and increase the size of the images after they have been added.
Updating target milestone to C10.
We're going to revisit iOS property pages, and we're already including a Generic PList Editor in XVS 4.3, which should help addressing this issue.
