Home Screen Icon Not Rendered on iOS

Do you all know about the Assets.car requirement in iOS 11? Instead of including individual icons (which you have to do to support older iOS), you now include an Assets.car file, that has all of the icon sizes. It would be an included file.

It is possible to make the file using Xcode, but I found that some icon sizes were being left out, and Apple rejects apps like that. Fortunately someone made an online tool, you give it your 1024x1024 icon, it gives you back the Assets.car file:

It also makes the needed Android icons.
