    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 :)

    I see it the fix (possibility to set 1024 iOS icon) is available in 5.6.4p1.
    It is not available in 5.5.5p1.
    But having it in 5.6 is ok for me.
    Thank You.

    I though paying Unity a monthly subscription would avoid that kind of issue and being always up to date... still a move behind every Apple whims... and the fix is on a version not yet available. Very disapointing...

    Can we have this fix in any of the Unity 5.X version?
