I hit the same problem and worked around it by comparing files between my project and the solution source code from the book.
In the end, changing two files manually in a text editor did the trick:
1. “project.pbxproj” in the “MyLocations.xcodeproj” folder
Find this line:
ASSETCATALOG_COMPILER_APPICON_NAME = AppIcon;
and add this line underneath it:
ASSETCATALOG_COMPILER_LAUNCHIMAGE_NAME = LaunchImage;
Note: You need to do this twice, once for release and debug settings.
2. “Info.plist” in the “MyLocations” folder
Find and remove these two lines:
I sure like to know whether there’s an easier way.
