Reference Status

WARNING there have been reports of apps being rejected when Reachability is used in a framework. The only solution to this so far is to rename the class.

Reachability

This is a drop-in replacement for Apple's

Reachability
class. It is ARC-compatible, and it uses the new GCD methods to notify of network interface changes.

In addition to the standard

NSNotification
, it supports the use of blocks for when the network becomes reachable and unreachable.

Finally, you can specify whether a WWAN connection is considered "reachable".

DO NOT OPEN BUGS UNTIL YOU HAVE TESTED ON DEVICE

BEFORE YOU OPEN A BUG ABOUT iOS6/iOS5 build errors, use Tag 3.2 or 3.1 as they support assign types

Requirements

Once you have added the

.h/m
files to your project, simply:
  • Go to the
    Project->TARGETS->Build Phases->Link Binary With Libraries
    .
  • Press the plus in the lower left of the list.
  • Add
    SystemConfiguration.framework
    .

Boom, you're done.

Examples

Block Example

This sample uses blocks to notify when the interface state has changed. The blocks will be called on a BACKGROUND THREAD, so you need to dispatch UI updates onto the main thread.

In Objective-C

// Allocate a reachability object
Reachability* reach = [Reachability reachabilityWithHostname:@"www.google.com"];

// Set the blocks reach.reachableBlock = ^(Reachability*reach) { // keep in mind this is called on a background thread // and if you are updating the UI it needs to happen // on the main thread, like this:

dispatch_async(dispatch_get_main_queue(), ^{
    NSLog(@"REACHABLE!");
});

};

reach.unreachableBlock = ^(Reachability*reach) { NSLog(@"UNREACHABLE!"); };

// Start the notifier, which will cause the reachability object to retain itself! [reach startNotifier];

In Swift 3

import Reachability

var reach: Reachability?

func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplicationLaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool { // Allocate a reachability object self.reach = Reachability.forInternetConnection()

    // Set the blocks
    self.reach!.reachableBlock = {
        (reach: Reachability?) -> Void in

        // keep in mind this is called on a background thread
        // and if you are updating the UI it needs to happen
        // on the main thread, like this:
        DispatchQueue.main.async {
            print("REACHABLE!")
        }
    }

    self.reach!.unreachableBlock = {
        (reach: Reachability?) -> Void in
        print("UNREACHABLE!")
    }

    self.reach!.startNotifier()

    return true

}

NSNotification
Example

This sample will use

NSNotification
s to notify when the interface has changed. They will be delivered on the MAIN THREAD, so you can do UI updates from within the function.

In addition, it asks the

Reachability
object to consider the WWAN (3G/EDGE/CDMA) as a non-reachable connection (you might use this if you are writing a video streaming app, for example, to save the user's data plan).

In Objective-C

// Allocate a reachability object
Reachability* reach = [Reachability reachabilityWithHostname:@"www.google.com"];

// Tell the reachability that we DON'T want to be reachable on 3G/EDGE/CDMA reach.reachableOnWWAN = NO;

// Here we set up a NSNotification observer. The Reachability that caused the notification // is passed in the object parameter [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] addObserver:self selector:@selector(reachabilityChanged:) name:kReachabilityChangedNotification object:nil];

[reach startNotifier];

In Swift 3

import Reachability

var reach: Reachability?

func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplicationLaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool { // Allocate a reachability object self.reach = Reachability.forInternetConnection()

// Tell the reachability that we DON'T want to be reachable on 3G/EDGE/CDMA
self.reach!.reachableOnWWAN = false

// Here we set up a NSNotification observer. The Reachability that caused the notification
// is passed in the object parameter
NotificationCenter.default.addObserver(
    self,
    selector: #selector(reachabilityChanged),
    name: NSNotification.Name.reachabilityChanged,
    object: nil
)

self.reach!.startNotifier()

return true

}

func reachabilityChanged(notification: NSNotification) { if self.reach!.isReachableViaWiFi() || self.reach!.isReachableViaWWAN() { print("Service available!!!") } else { print("No service available!!!") } }
