How to change default launch icon of ionic app


Hi there,

I was having the same issue but finally managed to fix it. Are you testing it on a Xiami phone? It almost seems like the android phone is using some of the icons from ios resources. Although I’m not really sure about that.

I actually went through all .png files in the project folder and I found the sample icon in ios resources. So I regenerated the icons for ios (even though I have an android app) using ionic cordova resources ios, uninstalled the app in the phone and installed it again. And it worked!

I double checked all the .png files again and haven’t the sample icon anywhere.

Let me know if it helped!


@cikcoh I’m using ionic 4 and still face the same problem :thinking: Don’t be sorry though, thanks for helping me out!


I tried your solution and yes, it works! Thanks @PatrioScraper :grinning:
