Disable Highlighting of a iOS App from XCode

If you do not like the highlighting added automatically to your iOS icon when you build an iOS app using XCode, you can disable icon highlighting by going (from XCode) to your project target -> Summary (tab) -> App icons (section) and there check Prerendered check box.

Note: If the app is still highligted just do a clean on the project and then rebuild your project and the highlighting will disappear.


Change Product Name of an iOS App from XCode

If you’ve created an XCode project but you want the app you build/compile to have a different name from your XCode project you can do that easily by going to project target -> Build Settings and there search for “product name“.

This will be found at Packaging section. Click on the name (which by default is the same as project name) to change it.

This is the easy way to rename / change the bundle identifier of an XCode project.
