RxSwift bindings for Permission API that helps you with Permissions in iOS.


RxPermission is available through CocoaPods. I can’t guarantee it is working correctly on Carthage, so if you want to help I’m happy to introduce it with your PR.

RxPermission should work with every Swift release >= 2.2, for detailed instructions check info below.

Swift 3.0

If you want to use RxPermission with Swift 3.0 you have to specify which Permission you want to install/use because of new Apple policy about permission. For example if you want to access the Camera and the Notifications you define the following:

pod 'RxPermission/Camera'
pod 'RxPermission/Notifications'

Available specs:

pod 'RxPermission/AddressBook'
pod 'RxPermission/Bluetooth'
pod 'RxPermission/Camera'
pod 'RxPermission/Contacts'
pod 'RxPermission/Events'
pod 'RxPermission/Location'
pod 'RxPermission/Microphone'
pod 'RxPermission/Motion'
pod 'RxPermission/Notifications'
pod 'RxPermission/Photos'
pod 'RxPermission/Reminders'
pod 'RxPermission/SpeechRecognizer'
pod 'RxPermission/MediaLibrary'

Below Swift 3.0

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

pod "RxPermission", "~> 0.2"

You need to also take care of Info.plist messages because otherwise Apple won’t accept the app in App Store.


RxPermission makes a rx_permission Observable that you can subscribe in order to receive signals.

Sample code

    .subscribeNext { status in
        print("Status: \(status)")

Available permissions:

public enum PermissionType {
    case addressBook
    case bluetooth
    case camera    
    case contacts
    case events
    case motion
    case microphone
    case notifications
    case photos
    case reminders
    case locationAlways
    case locationWhenInUse
    case mediaLibrary
    case speechRecognizer

Available statuses:

public enum PermissionStatus {
    case authorized
    case denied
    case disabled
    case notDetermined

For more info about permissions and statuses, please visit Permission’s README.


To run the example project, clone the repo, and run pod install from the Example directory first.
