Remove capacitor appicon

Hi all,

I have an issue with appicon on ios. I successfully replace default capacitor appicons by my customs app icons, everything is good in my Assets.xcassets directory and i see my custom appicon when my app is running on iphone.
However, it still remaining a default capacitor appicon when i reduce my app by double tap on the iphone home button (see screenshot below).
I cannot find where is this default capacitor icon to replace it…

If anyone have an idea…

Thanks :wink:

I’m having the same problem. I been trying to find where to change this.

Have you tried to run it on a physical device and not the emulator? That bug happened on the emulator but not on my personal device.


I actually run it on physical iphone 8 iOS 14.4 as you can see on the picture.

I recall this being some kind of caching issue if you loaded the app on your phone before updating the icons. Try downloading the app on a different device (that hasn’t downloaded it before) and see if the same issue happens there. If not, I think you can chalk it up to a caching issue on your device (which I never found worth digging into more to fix).

Yes that was the issue. I uninstalled the app, restarted my phone and rebuilt and now it’s ok.
