    Unfortunately you cannot replace the launch image with an animated one. What you could do is have the launch image as the first frame of an animation that plays in the first frame of your application.

    The launch image is something iOS shows while it loads the application from the iOS flash storage until it can actually show anything on it's own.
    On PC when you open an application you just get a delay where nothing seems to happen before the application shows up. On iOS users are used to instant responsiveness.
    This is why Apple encourages app developers to show a launch image that resembles the fully launched app but without any data.
    If you for example launch some of the system apps (fresh launch) you can see that it looks like the app launched instantly as it has the bottom menu and all until the clock information actually shows on the screen. It might appear it is a functional UI but it's in fact just a screenshot of the UI used as the launch image.

    Animating the image would be a waste of resources as it would launch pretty fast anyways.
    Most developers just add a quick launch animation as the very first thing the app does when it launches.
