Swift Package Manager



Setup AppVersion in your AppDelegate.swift, code is self-explanatory:

    func application(_ application: UIApplication,
                     didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplication.LaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {
        let appVersion = AppVersion.shared
        appVersion.updateFrequency = 1 // I want to check for updates once a day
        appVersion.alertsEnabled = true // I want UI alerts, presenting update options
        appVersion.alertType = .skippable // I want UI alert to include "Skip" button
        appVersion.neverEnabled = true // I want UI alert to include "Never" butoon
        appVersion.alertPresentationStyle = .actionSheet // I want UI presented as an actionSheet
        appVersion.checkBeforeUpdatePresented = { // I want to present UI only if App Store version has more than 1 review and average rating is higher than 3
            return (appVersion.appStoreVersionInfo?.ratingsCount ?? 0) > 1
                && (appVersion.appStoreVersionInfo?.averageRating ?? 0) > 3
        return true


Each meaningfull update tracking event provided as delegate (AppVersionDelegate). All delegates are optional, so you can implement only the one you need. Delegates can be used even if UI Alerts are disabled, for example you can choose to implement your own UI. Please refer to documentation for more details.
