Safe area insets

Taylor provides a backward compatible version of safeAreaInsets property for UIView. The original API is available on iOS 11 and above and the replacement fills the gap on older OS version (iOS 7 to 10 inclusively). It is an opt-in feature that requires to be enabled in order to work.

To enable the feature, place this piece of code the earliest possible in your AppDelegate’s application:didFinishLaunching:withOptions method:


Your can now access the compatibilitySafeAreaInsets property from any UIView. On iOS 11 and above, this property returns safeAreaInsets. To receive safe area update callbacks, your view must conform to the CompatibilitySafeAreaInsetsUpdate protocol.

To cover every iOS versions, your subview could look like this:

class BaseView: UIView, CompatibilitySafeAreaInsetsUpdate {
    func compatibilitySafeAreaInsetsDidChange() {

    @available(iOS 11.0, *)
    override func safeAreaInsetsDidChange() {

    func commonSafeAreaInsetsDidChange() {


  • There is a no-bitcode branch that’s (hopefully) kept up to date with the master.
