changing the macOS app icon to match Apples Human interface Guidelines:
https://developer.apple.com/design/human-interface-guidelines/app-icons

This was discussed in the passed years here:
https://devtalk.blender.org/t/ui-proposal-new-app-icon-on-macos/18743/31

The icon follows Blender's Logo guidelies and uses the unaltered logo. It also follows Apples Guidelines with the original template:
https://developer.apple.com/design/resources/ and adds a white gradient like other icons with a soft shadow.

The iconfile is renamed to 'Appicon.icns' matching common practice

Document Icon stays auto generated, implementing a custom document icon should also be done later.

@fsiddi I remember you had some objections to this the last time it came up. Do you think we should change to this icon style now?

When zooming into the png file, there seem to be some artifacts around the edges of the Blender logo. But before time is spent fixing that, we'd need to know if we want this at all, and which of the various proposed icons in the devtalk topic would be the preferred choice.

Thanks for the contribution, I'll coordinate this and get the icon update for Blender 4.0.
