iOS Keeping old launch screen and app icon after update

I have been able to reliably get the springboard cache cleared for testing launch image changes by doing this:

  1. Delete your app from the device
  2. Power down the device
  3. Power up device, install and launch app.

The image updates properly every time. Shame I need to power down the device to get it to go – but at least I have been able to make progress this way. I hope this helps someone.

In case of the simulator, just restarting of simulator should work.
