iOS SDK upgrade guide

This guide provides information about how to upgrade to the latest Swrve iOS SDK. For information about the changes that have been made in each iOS SDK release, see iOS SDK release notes.

Upgrading via CocoaPods

If you’re upgrading via CocoaPods, ensure you complete the following for every upgrade:

  • Update all libraries to the latest SDK version; for example, 8.2.0.
  • Run the command pod repo update to ensure all references are up to date (for example, Geo SDK).

Version 8.2.0

There are no code changes required to upgrade to Swrve iOS SDK v8.2.0.


Version 8.1.0

There are no code changes required to upgrade to Swrve iOS SDK v8.1.0.


Version 8.0.0

This section provides information for upgrading to Swrve iOS SDK v8.0.0.

The following table lists the methods and fields that have changed or been moved.

Removed Summary
SwrveMessageDelegate If you want to override the default in-app message display, we recommend using embedded campaigns.
userResourcesDiff userResourcesDiff is replaced by the userResourcesDiffWithListener API. This new API uses a callback listener that contains more information about where the result came from and any errors encountered.
Changed Summary
SwrveCustomButtonPressedCallback This API now contains an extra string argument for the campaign name.
SwrveDismissButtonPressedCallback This API now contains an extra string argument for the campaign name.

GIF support for in-app messages

To support using animated GIFs as your in-app message images and buttons, the Swrve SDK now requires SDWebImage as a dependency. If you integrate the SDK via CocoaPods or Swift Package Manager, it is automatically included and does not require any further code changes. However, Carthage integrations require you to include the SDWebImage.xcframework from our SwrveFramework project, or manually add SDWebImage to your Cartfile: github "SDWebImage" "~> 5.0"
