Hi mates,
When using a launchscreen storyboard as the "iphone launch images":

- In the property window, the "source" still shows "Migrate to asset catalog" and empty/black launch images (don't know where the compiler found them) are still included in the final ipa (when build for archiving).

- if the storyboard contains only one centered image, sometimes - well currently 5 times in a row - the app displays the storyboard when launched, but with a black rectangle instead of the image. I've checked that the image is in the generated IPA. Maybe it must be aligned or something like that ? I've this this happen in both simulator builds and appstore builds.
Currently i'm trying to create a working appstore build (ie: with a working launchscreen) and i lost all my time. I tryed to delete bin/obj folders, clean, rebuild, ...

I will try to switch from PNG to JPG, but i'm lost ...
It's quite urgent as i need to push an important update for a customer.

I wanna add that this "bug" is very old, as i saw it 3 years ago. But it is intermittent so hard to understand.

=> uncheck "clears graphics context" on UIImageView in storyboard
=> delete app
=> reboot phone to "uncache" the launch image
=> reinstall app

Works fine.
