     __Note__: Extended splashscreen does not require the plugin on Windows (as opposed to
Android and iOS) in case you don't use the plugin API, i.e. programmatic hide/show.
    +### iOS-specific information
    +There are two mechanisms for displaying a launch screen on iOS:
    +1. Legacy launch images: images are sized exactly for the device's screen size. Does
not support the iPad Pro 12.9's native resolution or split-screen/slide-over multitasking.
    +2. Launch storyboard images: Images are sized based on scale, idiom, and size classes.
Supports all devices, and can be used with split-screen/slide-over multitasking.
    +Apple is moving away from legacy launch images. There is no official support for providing
a native-resolution launch image for the iPad pro 12.9 or for providing launch images that
work with split-screen multitasking or slide-over. If your app doesn't need to support these
contexts, then you can continue to use legacy launch images for as long as you like. 
    +The preferred method of providing launch images is to use a launch storyboard. For native
app developers, the ideal launch storyboard is an unpopulated version of the app's user interface
at launch. For non-native app developers who don't wish to learn interface builder, however,
this plugin simulates the legacy launch image method as much as is feasible.
