I just created a new version of my App and discovered Apple is now requires 1024x1024 iTunesArtwork. The old value was 512x512 ...

Interesting ...

You should already have a 1024x1024 artwork called iTunesArtwork@2x.png added to your app. Just upload that instead of iTunesArtwork.png.

Really? You include your iTunesArtwork in your app?

It is optional.

I guess I though what was most interesting here, is that iTunesConnect previously required you upload a 512x512 image.

PS - Per the link above, you want to drop the ".png" suffix from the iTunesArtwork file. It seems counter intuitive I know, but there are quite a few blog post about this issue. Apple address it directly in their documentation.

Optional, but recommended.

So, add them all, including their @2x versions.

To be honest, that doc is a tad old. Xcode handles setting your app icons different now. For example, you don't need to use specific file names and edit your plist; you can just drag-and-drop your images into the Summary tab.

This isn't a big deal for me, since I've been creating @2x artwork since day 1.

Someone was kind enough to create a Photoshop template that creates all icons with one click.

See here:

Get template 2.0, as this is the one that does Retina resolution icons.
