I'm confused if all 10 of these images are needed. Is there any documentation on how/when each of these are used? My app only defines phoneStartupScreen and tabletStartupScreen. Can there be retina and non-retina versions of these? They have descriptive names but I don't know the difference between Default, Homescreen, etc.

The startup screen configs will use the <meta> tags that iOS will use when you launch the app saved to the homescreen from mobile safari. I do not think they can have different retina/non-retina images.

I just created graphics at these sizes and they work on retina iOS devices:

iPad: 1536x2008
iPhone: 640x920

It seems that home screen web links only use the Homescreen* graphics. Are all the Default* graphics used for native packaging maybe?

Also noticed that the Homescreen* are JPG and Default* are PNG. I made my Homescreen* PNG and they worked.

Update: just tested larger sizes and they don't work on iPad 2 so back to the smaller ones which work on both.
