iOS 11 Missing Marketing Icon

It is update season for iOS and Android applications with new versions of the operating systems being released. Today, I was on my way to push out a new version of the Xamarin Live Player to Test Flight users and hit this nasty error:

Missing Marketing Icon. iOS Apps must include a 1024x1024px Marketing Icon in PNG format. Apps that do not include the Marketing Icon cannot be submitted for App Review or Beta App Review.

What is that?!?!? I swear I uploaded the icon to iTunes connect. Well... I did, but that wasn't the issue! It is this new silly icon that is in the assets library that you must include. Tha tis right, you need to now shove a 1024x1024px icon for not good reason into your app. It is a new one and is NOT the iTunes artwork of the past. So, let's head into the assets library and find this little hidden icon:


Just like that, we can now actually send out our app to testers and to the app store! Silly Apple :)
