iOS 7 launch image (splash screen) fades out

Spread the love

Question Description

On iOS 7, launch images fade out instead of disappearing immediately when the app is loaded.

Is there any setting to prevent this launch image fade out animation?
I need it to disappear immediately just like in the iOS 6 and earlier.

Edit for answers:

Yes, it is possible to add the splash image as a UIImageView to the top window and hide it after splash fade animation is completed. But this causes a delay of 0.4 seconds which I’m trying to avoid.

Practice As Follows

I have managed to do that in the AppController. Just place this code right after the creation of the glView

    UIImage* image = [UIImage imageNamed:[self getLaunchImageName]];
if ([[UIScreen mainScreen] respondsToSelector: @selector(scale)])
{
    float screenScale = [[UIScreen mainScreen] scale];
    if (screenScale > 1.)
        image = [UIImage imageWithCGImage:image.CGImage scale:screenScale orientation:image.imageOrientation];
}
UIImageView *splashView = [[UIImageView alloc] initWithImage:image];
[viewController.view addSubview:splashView];
[splashView performSelector:@selector(removeFromSuperview) withObject:nil afterDelay:0.1f];

It is easy. Just get the launch image and make it disappear after a delay. You will need the getLaunchImage code (based on this comment, not tested with iPhone 6 nor 6 plus)

    -(NSString*)getLaunchImageName
{

    NSArray* images= @[@"LaunchImage.png",
                       @"[email protected]",
                       @"[email protected]",
                       @"[email protected]",
                       @"[email protected]",
                       @"[email protected]~ipad.png",
                       @"[email protected]~ipad.png",
                       @"LaunchImage-700-Portrait~ipad.png",
                       @"LaunchImage-Portrait~ipad.png",
                       @"[email protected]~ipad.png",
                       @"[email protected]~ipad.png",
                       @"LaunchImage-Landscape~ipad.png",
                       @"LaunchImage-700-Landscape~ipad.png",
                       @"[email protected]",
