When publishing an app in the Apple App Store, you are required to provide app screenshots. The screenshots have a significant impact on your app’s conversion rate. When people search apps in the App Store, your app’s screenshots appear next to the app name and app subtitle. And when potential users come to your app’s product page, the screenshots tell the story about your app and should convince them to download it.
Many mobile users will use your app screenshots to form a first impression and decide whether or not they want to download your app. That is why screenshots are crucial for your App Store listing optimization and play a massive role in driving more downloads.
Every screenshot you provide needs to have a purpose and boost your app’s best features.
A well-designed set of iOS app screenshots are:
The Apple guidelines are pretty straightforward. You must use images and videos taken directly within your app. That means you are not allowed to use images or videos that show, for example, someone holding an iPhone.
Apple gives you ten slots for screenshots per localization. We highly advise that you use all ten slots when uploading the images in App Store Connect if it makes sense. Some apps might use only 5 or 6 screenshots if the app has powerful features and a popular brand name. But generally speaking, every additional screenshot is an added opportunity to show why people need to download your app.
The screenshots must be in flattened JPEG or PNG RGB file format with 72 dpi resolution and without transparency. Each screenshot needs to fit one of the mandatory screen resolutions defined by the Apple App Store (see below).
Apple is specific about showing how people use your app. All screenshots need to be taken from the app; that is, they need to contain the screens from the app. As the data provider, you are responsible for everything you upload, so we suggest using only the elements over which you have intellectual property.
Apple provides new app features with every iOS update (such as dark mode), and we encourage you to try them out. We have often seen that apps that implement iOS features get a little boost in the App Store.
The following essential aspect of designing iOS screenshots is adhering to the Apple device sizes. The tables below outline the required dimensions and the corresponding pixels for portrait and landscape orientation. Apple provides pixel-size specifications for screenshots on iPhones, iPads, Macs, Apple TVs and Apple Watches.
Before looking at the screenshot table, there is one crucial thing to remember. You may provide screenshots for every iOS screen size, but you don’t have to. Three screenshot sizes are default and mandatory:
If you don’t provide screenshots for other device sizes, the App Store will use screenshots from one of the mandatory screen sizes. The same is true for videos – App Store will use resolutions defined for 6.5-inch and 5.5-inch screens for iPhones and 12.9-inch screen sizes for iPads. So if you don’t upload the videos for other device sizes, App Store will scale the video from one of the default resolutions.
The column “Screenshot source” and “App preview source” show which device sizes use which type of screenshots and videos by default and which sizes can be used as alternatives.
