Making App Icons for tvOS

According to Apple’s Human Interface Guidelines, every app must provide an icon to be displayed on the Apple TV Home screen and in the App Store. An app should specify several different icons of different dimensions to suit different screen sizes and different situations.

Here is the dimensions for tvOS apps:

All images on Apple TV are @1x resolution.
Layered images are required for app icons

After creating all the icons, you should put it into a folder whose name is icon.iconset. The folder must have the .iconset extension. It might look a bit unusual for a folder to have an extension, but this extension is a signal to the system that the folder contains a set of icons.
