We are putting together our first Xamarin.IOS App and need to set up Launch Screens.
I understand it is possible to do this using a Storyboard, or by using a set of images. The storyboard sounds more extensible, but I understand this is limited to the current and future device models? We need to support older models (iPhone 4,5 etc) but we are limiting to IOS 8 onwards.
The fact that the storyboard is not backward compatible suggests a file image set solution, however I am told that in order to get compatibility approval on iPhone 6+ we need to use a storyboard.
Is it possible achieve launch screens by having a mix of storyboard and file images? And if so what is the best procedure for doing this.
Also, just to clarify, is the Launch Screen synonymous with a splash screen, or should we be doing both of these.
