Beside adding a Defaultemail@example.com file to your application, it seems that, after looking a while, you don't need to add other artworks with a -568h@2x in order to support the taller screen of the iPhone 5. The trick seems to be having artworks tall enough to support the taller screen. But I don't like this at all. I have some views which are using visual elements that depends on spatial placement of the UI (the tabbar) and they are built as bitmaps. I'll have to re-imagine that I guess or have to add code that will check for the screen size at runtime and chose which bitmaps to show.
