Hi, is it possible to change the app icon from code? I have seen that Instagram made this some months ago where you could choose the app icon:

Thanks!

Possible (in IOS 10.3+) and already discussed. Works in release mode only.
Thanks for the quick reply! I tried it and it only works when I re install the app. If i click on the buttons, the icon is not updated on runtime. I have to install the app again in release mode for the icon to update. Any ideas? Thanks

Which IOS ? It were problems with first IOS 13 releases.

Just tested in IOS 14.4 simulator. Compiled as Build Simulator Release App). If I click a button inside a program and then Home Screen button (at the top of simulator), a new icon appears immeadiatelly.

Im using iOs 14.4 on iPhone 11. The only changes I made to the code where change package name and provisionfile root. I tried it on simulator and works fine, but somehow on real device it is not working.
