How iTunes Connect Became a HeadacheUploading screenshots to iTunes Connect got tremendously complicated thanks to the now new iOS Screenshot Sizes. If your app was compatible with every iPhone version then uploading app screenshots to the App Store turned into a nightmare. Just imagine the time that it takes to create screenshots in different languages (localization) and for specific devices. Picture this: Assuming you upload 5 screenshots for each iPhone device, you would need to take 5 screenshots on 4 different devices (3.5″, 4″, 4.7″ and 5.5″). That’s 20 images. Is your app available in different languages? If so, the number of images you would need to upload could increase to a 100 or even more! Just think about the time that it would take to add text to each image, it’s just too much. Wouldn’t it make sense to spend that amount of time and effort on improving your app? Definitely!
Then Apple Came to Save the DayOn Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference of 2016, great news was given to the app development world with the Simplified Screenshot Submission Process. With simplified screenshots, Apple allows app developers to generate screenshots for every iPhone version by simply uploading a 5.5″ screenshot asset. Their platform then downsizes this 5.5″ (iPhone 7 Plus) screenshot to 4.7″, 4″ and 3.5″ to fit every device in the Apple’s iPhone family. Best of all, a single checkbox does the job! Really, when uploading a 5.5″ screenshot image that meets Apple’s standards, that’s all you need to do. Tip: screenshots generated with Placeit meet the requisites. Tip: Apple released this information about submitting apps designed for the iPhone X to the App Store, check out this video.
- Step 1. Drag your screenshots (Apple recommends 3-5) on the highest-resolution display (5.5″) to the grey area:
- Step 2. Tick “Use 5.5-Inch Display”.
- Step 3. Click on “Other Sizes” to see your 5 original screenshots scaled to fit perfectly on smaller devices. That’s it!
