iOS13 broke my screen icon

The top third of my home screen icon is chopped off now with iOS13.

Though when I tap on the icon to open my web app, then hit the home button to return to the home screen, my icon is shown in its entirety for a brief moment. Then the top third of it disappears.

Very strange.

What version of AppStudio was it created with?

Is the app saved to the Home screen, or is it a PhoneGap app?

AppStudio version 7.4.2, web app saved to home screen.

I just did a full deploy and downloaded it again under iOS13. Same result.

Can you send the URL? I’ll try it here. (Send by PM if you want to keep it private)

I see the same thing here with your icon:


I then tried the HelloWorld sample. It renders properly. I’m guessing there is a problem with your icons.

I notice that your manifest.json has the following:

  "short_name": "Cal Crimes",
  "name": "Cal Crimes",
  "display": "standalone",
  "start_url": "index.html",
  "background_color": "black",
  "theme_color": "black",
  "icons": [
      "src": "images/icons-192.png",
      "sizes": "192x192"
      "src": "images/icons-512.png",
      "sizes": "512x512"

If you compare that to what it should look like, you’ll see it is different:

I’d start with fixing that and seeing if there is anything else. For example, it looks like you are only deploying images/calcrimes.png (304x90), with no other sizes.

Let us know what you find - others could be having similar issues!


I reloaded the 192x192 icon in AppStudio and all is well.
