Apple has begun notifying developers via email that the time to prep their apps for iOS 7 has come.
In particular, the latest email sent this week was intended to alert developers about an issue with the existing application icon sizes of their apps.
Based on coverage from 9to5Mac, Apple appears to be asking developers to provide larger app icons.
“As part of iOS 7′s dramatic interface changes,” today’s report reads, “the Home screen icons have been slightly enlarged compared to the iOS 6 icons.”
According to Apple:
- If your application supports the iPhone device family, you must include square icons of the following dimensions: 57×57 pixels and 120×120 pixels.
- If your application supports the iPad device family, you must include square icons of the following dimensions: 72×72 pixels, 76×76 pixels and 152×152 pixels
Apple is expected to launch iOS 7 next month.
