    I’m wondering how I might be notified whenever a new post has been made.

    Has there been any resolution to this issue? I'm still seeing this in 2017.1.2f1, and building in UCB with Unity Version = Alwyas Use Latest 2017.x. This is such a showstopper issue, I'm surprised there has been no response from Unity on how to fix this.

    Another workaround is to check Icon > Overwrite for iOS, and drop your hi-res icon into the top slot for each category

    Really impressive post.
    I read it whole and going to share it with my social circles.
    I enjoyed your article and planning to rewrite it on my own blog.

    I have marketing icon issue in iTunes connect. I was on my way to push out a new version so I was getting an iTunes error 14 after up-gradation. Maybe this not what I am looking for, but this might be helpful to me, I hope this could be the possible reason & solution to iTunes error

    For anyone stuck doing a release on an older version of Unity, this post worked for me:

    Another workaround is to check Icon > Overwrite for iOS, and drop your hi-res icon into the top slot for each category, all the way down to the 1024x1024 slot.

    Once xcode project is generated > open the project > select "Images.xcassets" from hierarchy > click on app icon > scroll down > assign your 1024x1024 icon by dragging and dropping on that last > now archive > submit . No errors :)
