iPad running iOS 10 shows app icon resized instead of launch image

I’m having a similar issue to this question below here but it only happens in iPad running iOS10.. the launch screen shows the app icon resized instead of showing the launch image. Unlike the question below, I have set launch images in image assets and referenced it in info.plist, its not empty and it shows perfectly on iPhone. Is anyone else experiencing the same problem?

iPad Application shows app icon as launch screen in iOS 10

    This is probably due to the animation that is used to give the “zoom” effect from the app icon when the user launches your app.

    In your case, you have not specified an image so there is nothing to show. This is something that isn’t supported as your app would be rejected if you tried to submit to iTunes Connect. You should always ensure that you have a launch image (or nib) set, even if it’s just a plain white image.
