The AWS iOS SDK provides a library for developing iOS applications that interact with Amazon Web Services (AWS) services. This documentation provides an overview of how to install and use the AWS iOS SDK to build powerful and scalable iOS applications.


  • High-level APIs for easy integration with AWS services
  • Support for a wide range of AWS services, including Amazon S3, Amazon EC2, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon SES, and more
  • Ability to handle asynchronous operations and errors gracefully
  • Securely manage credentials using AWS Key Management Service
  • Integration with Amazon Cognito for user authentication and authorization

Getting Started

Step 1: Installation

To get started, you need to install the AWS iOS SDK using Cocoapods. Open your project’s terminal and execute the following command:

pod 'AWSiOSSDKv2'

Step 2: Configuring AWS Credentials

Before you can start using the AWS iOS SDK, you need to configure your AWS credentials. Follow these steps:

  1. Create an AWS account if you don’t have one already.
  2. Go to the AWS Management Console and navigate to the IAM service.
  3. Create a new IAM user or use an existing one.
  4. Generate access keys for the IAM user.
  5. Set the access key and secret access key in your app’s code using the AWS SDK’s AWSStaticCredentialsProvider class.

Step 3: Using AWS Services

Once you have installed the SDK and configured your credentials, you can start using AWS services in your iOS app. The AWS iOS SDK provides high-level APIs for interacting with various AWS services. Consult the documentation for each individual service for more details.
