JLPermissions is available through CocoaPods, to install it simply add any or all of the following lines to your Podfile:

pod "JLPermissions/Calendar"
pod "JLPermissions/Camera"
pod "JLPermissions/Contacts"
pod "JLPermissions/Facebook"
pod "JLPermissions/Health"
pod "JLPermissions/Location"
pod "JLPermissions/Microphone"
pod "JLPermissions/Notification"
pod "JLPermissions/Photos"
pod "JLPermissions/Reminders"
pod "JLPermissions/Twitter" 

Only add the pod for the permissions you plan on using. Apple rejects apps that include Healthkit API's but do not use them.


To run the example project; clone the repo, and run

pod install
, then open JLPermissionsExample.xcworkspace.

The method for asking for each type of permission (other than push notifications) is virtually identical. Here is an example of the API:

typedef NS_ENUM(NSInteger, JLAuthorizationStatus) {
  JLPermissionNotDetermined = 0,

typedef void (^AuthorizationHandler)(bool granted, NSError *error);

  • (JLAuthorizationStatus)authorizationStatus;
  • (void)authorize:(AuthorizationHandler)completion;
  • (void)authorizeWithTitle:(NSString *)messageTitle
                 message:(NSString *)message
             cancelTitle:(NSString *)cancelTitle
              grantTitle:(NSString *)grantTitle
  • (void)displayErrorDialog;
