What is a Launch File, and how do I create one?

I am trying to make a launch image for my app, but in the documentation, for iPhone 6/iPhone 6+ it says to create a Launch File to make the Launch image. How do I do this?

Pre-Xcode 6 you could clicked on the Images.xcassets file and in there you will see LaunchImage. There you can supply it with the two images sizes it wants.

In Xcode 6 when you create a new project it creates a LaunchScreen.xib file for you. If you click on this you can edit how you want the LaunchScreen to look. Clicking on it will open it in Interface Builder.
