Swift Package Manager

In Xcode go to File -> Packages -> Update to Latest Package Versions and insert url:


or adding it to the dependencies value of your Package.swift:

dependencies: [
    .package(url: "https://github.com/sparrowcode/PermissionsKit", .upToNextMajor(from: "9.0.0"))

Next, choose the permissions you need. But don't add all of them, because apple will reject app.


This is an outdated way of doing things. I advise you to use SPM. However, I will continue to support Cocoapods for some time.

Cocoapods Instalation

CocoaPods is a dependency manager. For usage and installation instructions, visit their website. To integrate using CocoaPods, specify it in your Podfile:

pod 'PermissionsKit/NotificationPermission', :git => 'https://github.com/sparrowcode/PermissionsKit'

Due to Apple's new policy regarding permission access you need to specifically define what kind of permissions you want to access using subspecs.

pod 'PermissionsKit/CameraPermission', :git => 'https://github.com/sparrowcode/PermissionsKit'
pod 'PermissionsKit/ContactsPermission', :git => 'https://github.com/sparrowcode/PermissionsKit'
pod 'PermissionsKit/CalendarPermission', :git => 'https://github.com/sparrowcode/PermissionsKit'
pod 'PermissionsKit/PhotoLibraryPermission', :git => 'https://github.com/sparrowcode/PermissionsKit'
pod 'PermissionsKit/NotificationPermission', :git => 'https://github.com/sparrowcode/PermissionsKit'
pod 'PermissionsKit/MicrophonePermission', :git => 'https://github.com/sparrowcode/PermissionsKit'
pod 'PermissionsKit/RemindersPermission', :git => 'https://github.com/sparrowcode/PermissionsKit'
pod 'PermissionsKit/SpeechRecognizerPermission', :git => 'https://github.com/sparrowcode/PermissionsKit'
pod 'PermissionsKit/LocationWhenInUsePermission', :git => 'https://github.com/sparrowcode/PermissionsKit'
pod 'PermissionsKit/LocationAlwaysPermission', :git => 'https://github.com/sparrowcode/PermissionsKit'

pod 'PermissionsKit/TrackingPermission', :git => 'https://github.com/sparrowcode/PermissionsKit'
pod 'PermissionsKit/FaceIDPermission', :git => 'https://github.com/sparrowcode/PermissionsKit'
pod 'PermissionsKit/SiriPermission', :git => 'https://github.com/sparrowcode/PermissionsKit'
pod 'PermissionsKit/HealthPermission', :git => 'https://github.com/sparrowcode/PermissionsKit'

Request Permission

import PermissionsKit
import NotificationPermission

Permission.notification.request {


Status Permission

import PermissionsKit
import NotificationPermission

let authorized = Permission.notification.authorized

Keys in Info.plist

You need to add some keys to the Info.plist file with descriptions, per Apple's requirements. You can get a plist of keys for permissions as follows:

let key = Permission.bluetooth.usageDescriptionKey

Warning Do not use the description as the name of the key.


If you use xliff localization export, keys will be create automatically. If you prefer do the localization file manually, you need to create InfoPlist.strings, select languages on the right side menu and add keys as keys in plist-file. See:

"NSCameraUsageDescription" = "Here description of usage camera";
