Icons for iPhone, iPad, and iPod: What Image Sizes Do I Need?
When making apps for all generations of Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod devices, application developers are required to use a certain set of images meeting Apple's strict Custom Icon and Image Creation Guidelines. As a bare minimum, one needs an application icon and a launch image. However, Apple recommends that apps provide quite a few additional images such as an icon to be used by iOS when displaying Spotlight search results and Settings. Apps that can open certain file types (such as documents, music, or video formats) will require icons to represent their supported file formats. Most apps will also need a fair share of graphics to draw their navigation bars, tab bars and toolbars.
As a general rule, Apple has very strict requirements on how to draw these icons so that each app running on iPhone, iPad, or iPod platform conforms to common specifications and visual guidelines. Specifications ensure that your app looks in line with apps offered by Apple and third-party developers.
The Retina Display: Making Icons That Look Great
Apple's new super-high density Retina display packs more pixels into a small area than was possible just a few years ago. These high-resolution displays allow displaying the highest definition graphics to create crisp images with stunning dimension and depth. As such, Retina displays will naturally require higher resolution icons to be used in navigation bars, toolbars, and tab bars. Texture-reach, detailed, and more realistic images with small elements and engravings will create the most pleasing effect of three-dimensionality and depth. To look good on Retina displays, developers need their icons in resolutions of 60x60 pixels.
Icons for Navigation Bars, Toolbars, and Tab Bars
While, in general, apps can use artwork in any reasonable size or resolution, there are a few common sizes your icons must conform to in order for iOS to display them properly in navigation bars, toolbars, and tab bars.
For iPhone and iPod touch toolbar and navigation bars, Apple specifies the icon sizes of 20 x 20 pixels (standard resolution) and 40 x 40 pixels (high resolution, for Retina displays). Toolbar and navigation bars in iPad apps use 20 x 20 pixel versions exclusively.
Tab bar icons are specified in two sizes. 30 x 30 pixel versions are used in tab bars displayed in iPad, iPhone and iPod touch apps in standard resolution. In addition, iPhone and iPod touch apps employing the Retina display will benefit from using super-sized images in resolution of 60 x 60 pixels.
