📋 Requirements

Following are required for using CleverTap iOS SDK -

  • iOS 9.0 or later
  • tvOS 9.0 or later

🎉 Installation


For your iOS, App Extension target(s) and tvOS app, add the following to your Podfile:

target 'YOUR_TARGET_NAME' do  
    pod 'CleverTap-iOS-SDK'  

If your main app is also a watchOS Host, and you wish to capture custom events from your watchOS app, add this:

    pod 'CleverTapWatchOS'  

Also, you will need to enable the preprocessor macro via your Podfile by adding this post install hook:

post_install do |installer_representation|
    installer_representation.pods_project.targets.each do |target|
        target.build_configurations.each do |config|
            config.build_settings['GCC_PREPROCESSOR_DEFINITIONS'] ||= ['$(inherited)', 

Then run pod install.


CleverTap also supports Carthage to package your dependencies as a framework.

To integrate CleverTap into your Xcode project using Carthage, specify it in your Cartfile:

github "CleverTap/clevertap-ios-sdk"

Run carthage update to build the framework and drag the built CleverTapSDK.framework into your Xcode project.
