    In Unity 2017.1.2f I have a slot but don't know how to load this only icon? It's disabled but if I choose "Override for iOS" - all others reset. Any instructions to it?

    Same issue in 5.6.3p1. Getting this fixed in 5.6.3 would be good.

    @darren - You are a lifesaver! This workaround works great for me and I'm able to submit to Apple again without issue.

    Would still like to see a fix for this in the future, but this is a great temporary workaround for anyone affected.

    I was having problems until I selected to use Xcode 8.3 (instead of Xcode 9) in Cloud Build->Config->iOS Production->Signing Credentials. After that, build succeeded, and App Store approved with no error or warning about missing marketing icon.

    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.

    This is a showstopper for UCB users! We have an update ready for the last couple days and can't submit because of the missing icon.
