RudderStack iOS SDK

RudderStack's iOS SDK lets you track event data from your iOS and tvOS applications. After integrating the SDK, you will also be able to send these events to your preferred destinations such as Google Analytics, Amplitude, and more.

For detailed documentation on the iOS SDK, click here.

Installing the iOS SDK

The iOS SDK is available through CocoaPods, Carthage, and Swift Package Manager (SPM).


To install the SDK, simply add the following line to your Podfile:

pod 'Rudder', '1.16.0'


For Carthage support, add the following line to your Cartfile:

github "rudderlabs/rudder-sdk-ios" "v1.16.0"

Remember to include the following code in all .m and .h files where you want to refer to or use the RudderStack SDK classes, as shown:

#import <Rudder/Rudder.h>

Swift Package Manager (SPM)

You can also add the RudderStack iOS SDK via Swift Package Mangaer, via one of the following two ways:


  • Go to File - Add Package, as shown:

Adding a package

  • Enter the package repository ([email protected]:rudderlabs/rudder-sdk-ios.git) in the search bar.

  • In Dependency Rule, select Up to Next Major Version and enter 1.16.0 as the value, as shown:

Setting dependency

  • Select the project to which you want to add the package.

  • Finally, click on Add Package.


To leverage package.swift, use the following snippet in your project:

// swift-tools-version:5.5
// The swift-tools-version declares the minimum version of Swift required to build this package.

import PackageDescription

let package = Package(
    name: "RudderStack",
    products: [
        // Products define the executables and libraries a package produces, and make them visible to other packages.
            name: "RudderStack",
            targets: ["RudderStack"]),
    dependencies: [
        // Dependencies declare other packages that this package depends on.
        .package(url: "[email protected]:rudderlabs/rudder-sdk-ios.git", from: "1.16.0")
    targets: [
        // Targets are the basic building blocks of a package. A target can define a module or a test suite.
        // Targets can depend on other targets in this package, and on products in packages this package depends on.
            name: "RudderStack",
            dependencies: [
                .product(name: "Rudder", package: "rudder-sdk-ios")
            name: "RudderStackTests",
            dependencies: ["RudderStack"]),

Initializing the RudderStack client

To the initialize RSClient, place the following code in your AppDelegate.m file under the method didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:

RSConfigBuilder *builder = [[RSConfigBuilder alloc] init];
[builder withDataPlaneUrl:<DATA_PLANE_URL>];
[RSClient getInstance:<WRITE_KEY> config:[builder build]];

A shared instance of RSClient is accesible after the initialization by [RSClient sharedInstance].

Sending Events


[[RSClient sharedInstance] track:@"simple_track_event"];
[[RSClient sharedInstance] track:@"simple_track_with_props" properties:@{
    @"key_1" : @"value_1",
    @"key_2" : @"value_2"


[[RSClient sharedInstance] screen:@"Main" properties:@{@"prop_key" : @"prop_value"}];


[[RSClient sharedInstance] identify:@"test_user_id"
                             traits:@{@"foo": @"bar",
                                      @"foo1": @"bar1",
                                      @"email": @"[email protected]"}


[[RSClient sharedInstance] group:@"sample_group_id"
                          traits:@{@"foo": @"bar",
                                   @"foo1": @"bar1",
                                   @"email": @"[email protected]"}


[[RSClient sharedInstance] alias:@"new_user_id"];


[[RSClient sharedInstance] reset];
