Haris Bin Nasir Avatar



In today’s tutorial, I’m going to show you how to change your app icon and display name for both iOS and Android in Flutter. The concepts covered here also apply to desktop applications developed with Flutter. All you need is the icon image that you want to use for your app, and you’re ready to go. Let’s dive into the steps.

If you prefer watching a video tutorial here is a link to that.


We’ll use the flutter_launcher_icons package to change the app icons and display names for both iOS and Android. This package simplifies the process of generating and configuring the necessary settings for multiple platforms.


Before starting, ensure you have:

  • Flutter installed
  • Basic knowledge of Flutter and Dart
  • The icon image you want to use for your app

Setting Up the Project

Step 1: Add Dependencies

First, head over to pub.dev and navigate to the flutter_launcher_icons package. Copy the dependency, then open your pubspec.yaml file and add it under the dev_dependencies section:

  flutter_launcher_icons: ^0.9.2

To get the dependency click here.

Save the file and run flutter pub get to install th package:

flutter pub get

This installs the flutter_launcher_icons package, which allows us to override the icons for iOS, Android, macOS, and Windows.

Step 2: Configure Icons

Next, define a specific section within your pubspec.yaml file to configure how the icons are generated and where the icon image is located. Add this section at the end of your pubspec.yaml file:

  android: "launcher_icon"
  ios: true
  image_path: "assets/icons/icon.png"
  adaptive_icon_background: "#42a5f5"
  adaptive_icon_foreground: "assets/icons/icon-foreground.png"

Make sure to create the necessary folder structure and place your icon image in the specified path:

└── icons/
    └── icon.png

You can use websites like easyappicon.com to generate your app icons.

Generating Icons

Once the configuration is done, run the following command to generate the icons for both iOS and Android:

flutter pub run flutter_launcher_icons

This command uses the flutter_launcher_icons package to generate the necessary icon files and settings for both platforms.

Changing the App Name

For Android

To change the app name on Android, open AndroidManifest.xml located at android/app/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml and modify the android:label property:


Replace "YourAppName" with the desired name of your app.

For iOS

To change the app name on iOS, open Info.plist located at ios/Runner/Info.plist and modify the CFBundleName property:


Replace "YourAppName" with the desired name of your app.

Running the Application

With everything set up, run your application using flutter run. You should see the updated app icon and name on both iOS and Android.

flutter run

Additional Configuration for Desktop

If you’re developing a desktop application for Windows or macOS, the configuration can also be set up in the same pubspec.yaml file. Check the flutter_launcher_icons package documentation on pub.dev for detailed instructions.
