iOS launch image for iPad: are the landscape versions mandatory?

QUESTION 1:
My app uses portrait orientation only, so I was wondering: is it mandatory to include landscape launch image for iPads?

If it is not, this would help reducing the app's memory size.

QUESTION 2:

Also, is it mandatory to include an iPad retina (3 and higher) launch image (1536 x 2048) if I am already including an iPad2 one (768x1024)?

I read in a 2 years old Adobe article that not including a 1536 x 2048 image may causes some drifting of the launch image on iPad 3 and higher, is it still the case?

I am not too concerned if the launch image is non-retina on a retina iPad, but I'd rather avoid the drifting if it is still an issue.

Unfortunately I don't own an iPad3 or higher and I can't test this myself, so I was wondering if anyone could share their experience.

Thanks in advance for any help or pointers you might give.

You only need the portrait ones, which would be these (if it’s iPad only):

Default-Portrait.png

Default-Portrait@2x.png

The second one is the Retina version, and yes, it’s required.

If the app is for iPhone too, you would need these:

Default.png

Default@2x.png

Default-568h@2x.png

Thank you so much for the prompt reply, it's an iPad AND iPhone app, I already have included all of the launch images you mentioned except for 'Default-Portrait@2x.png' which I was not sure about - so now I will include that too and delete the landscape versions. Thanks again.
