Notes

According to Apple’s application guidelines, a tablet (iPad) application should not hide the status bar while a handheld (iPhone) application should hide status bar.

The above dimensions are assuming that you have chosen to follow this recommendation. If you choose a different path, then you should increase or decrease the image height based on the size of the status bar.

An iPhone app should include one launch image in portrait orientation; an iPad app should include one launch image in portrait orientation andone launch image in landscape orientation. This means that not all formats listed above are required.
