Description Prashant [MSFT] 2017-08-01 10:52:47 UTC
When we add App icons to an asset catalog the files are added under `<project_root>\Resources` folder instead of <project_root> folder.

VS for Mac and XCode both add the asset catalog under <project_root> folder

Forum post - https://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/100146/different-paths-for-ios-appicons-using-vs2017-and-vs4mac

# Steps to reproduce 

1. Create an iOS Project
2. Add asset catalog and AppIcon set

# Actual result 

The files are added to the path myApp/myApp.iOS/Resources/Media.xcassets/AppIcons.appiconset

# Expected result
The files should be added to the path
