Standard Icon Sizes for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Apps
When designing apps for current generations of Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod devices, application developers must use a specific set of images meeting Apple's stringent Custom Icon and Image Creation Guidelines. As a bare minimum, developers need an application icon and a launch image. However, Apple recommends that apps provide quite a few additional images, such as an icon used by the system when displaying Spotlight search results and Settings. Apps that can open certain file types (such as documents, tunes, or video clips) will require icons to represent their supported file types. 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 the iPhone, iPad, or iPod platform conforms to common specifications and visual guidelines. Specifications ensure that your app looks in line with what's offered by Apple and third-party developers.
Designing Icons for the Retina Display
Apple's new pixel-packed Retina display packs more pixels into a small area than was possible just a few years ago. These high-definition displays allow showing the highest definition graphics to display 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, highly detailed, and more realistic images with multiple small elements and carvings will create the most pleasing effect of three-dimensionality and depth. To look great graphics on Retina displays, developers need their icons in resolutions of 60x60 pixels.
Icons for Navigation Bars, Toolbars, and Tab Bars
While, generally, apps can use graphics in any supported size or resolution, there are a few common sizes your icons must include in order for the system to draw them properly in navigation bars, toolbars, and tab bars.
For iPhone and iPod touch toolbar and navigation bars, Apple specifies the image resolutions 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 resolutions. 30 x 30 pixel versions are employed in tab bars displayed in iPad, iPhone and iPod touch apps in standard resolution. In addition, iPhone and iPod touch apps with the Retina display will benefit from having super-sized images in sizes of 60 x 60 pixels.
