What is the launch screen?

The launch screen is an image that will appear for 2-3 seconds prior to loading your app. This is a prompt at the start of each app session, so keep in mind that if you do not fully quit the app then the launch screen will not appear again.



The launch screen requires resubmission to Apple in order to update because it is a part of the App Listing. It takes 24-48 hours to process and submit.

How to update the launch screen

You can update your launch screen in the Design section in the Tapcart Dashboard. Switch the display toggle to Theme.

To optimize your launch screen, we recommend the following:

  • Your launch screen must be 1125 x 2436 dimensions to be compatible with the latest iPhone model

  • Avoid text on the sides and corners as they may get cut off in smaller iPhone screens

  • Include lifestyle imagery to ensure it grabs the attention of your audience
