Integrating Facebook with RudderStack's iOS SDK

  1. Add Facebook as a destination in the Dashboard.

  2. Rudder-Facebook is available through CocoaPods. To install it, add the following line to your Podfile and followed by pod install:

pod 'Rudder-Facebook'

Initialize RSClient

Put the following code in your AppDelegate.m file under the method didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:

RSConfigBuilder *builder = [[RSConfigBuilder alloc] init];
[builder withDataPlaneUrl:DATA_PLANE_URL];
[builder withFactory:[RudderFacebookFactory instance]];
[RSClient getInstance:WRITE_KEY config:[builder build]];
  1. To enable the sending of events to Facebook App Events on iOS 14+ app MUST request user for tracking:

Put the following snippet in your AppDelegate.m file under the method didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:

NSTimeInterval delayInSeconds = 1.0;
dispatch_time_t popTime = dispatch_time(DISPATCH_TIME_NOW, (int64_t)(delayInSeconds * NSEC_PER_SEC));
dispatch_after(popTime, dispatch_get_main_queue(), ^(void){
    [self requestTracking];

Then put the below snippet in your AppDelegate.m file

-(void) requestTracking {
    if (@available(iOS 14, *)) {
        [ATTrackingManager requestTrackingAuthorizationWithCompletionHandler:^(ATTrackingManagerAuthorizationStatus status) {
            switch (status){
                case ATTrackingManagerAuthorizationStatusNotDetermined:
                case ATTrackingManagerAuthorizationStatusRestricted:
                case ATTrackingManagerAuthorizationStatusAuthorized:
                    [FBSDKSettings.sharedSettings setAutoLogAppEventsEnabled:true];
                    [FBSDKSettings.sharedSettings setAdvertiserTrackingEnabled:true];
                    [FBSDKSettings.sharedSettings setAdvertiserIDCollectionEnabled:true];
            case ATTrackingManagerAuthorizationStatusDenied:
                    [FBSDKSettings.sharedSettings setAutoLogAppEventsEnabled:false];
                    [FBSDKSettings.sharedSettings setAdvertiserTrackingEnabled:false];
                    [FBSDKSettings.sharedSettings setAdvertiserIDCollectionEnabled:false];
