An iOS pre-permissions utility that lets developers ask users on their own dialog for calendar, contacts, location, photos, reminders, twitter, push notifications and more, before making the system-based permission request.

Version Platform


iOS 8.0+


JLPermissions is available through CocoaPods, to install it simply add any or all of the following lines to your Podfile:

pod "JLPermissions/Calendar"
pod "JLPermissions/Camera"
pod "JLPermissions/Contacts"
pod "JLPermissions/Facebook"
pod "JLPermissions/Health"
pod "JLPermissions/Location"
pod "JLPermissions/Microphone"
pod "JLPermissions/Notification"
pod "JLPermissions/Photos"
pod "JLPermissions/Reminders"
pod "JLPermissions/Twitter" 

Only add the pod for the permissions you plan on using. Apple rejects apps that include Healthkit API's but do not use them.


To run the example project; clone the repo, and run pod install, then open JLPermissionsExample.xcworkspace.

The method for asking for each type of permission (other than push notifications) is virtually identical. Here is an example of the API:

typedef NS_ENUM(NSInteger, JLAuthorizationStatus) {
  JLPermissionNotDetermined = 0,

typedef void (^AuthorizationHandler)(bool granted, NSError *error);

- (JLAuthorizationStatus)authorizationStatus;
- (void)authorize:(AuthorizationHandler)completion;
- (void)authorizeWithTitle:(NSString *)messageTitle
                   message:(NSString *)message
               cancelTitle:(NSString *)cancelTitle
                grantTitle:(NSString *)grantTitle
- (void)displayErrorDialog;
