PAPermissions is a fully customizable and ready-to-run library to handle permissions through a ViewController

Right now it supports out of the box permissions for:

  • Address Book
  • Bluetooth
  • Calendar
  • Camera
  • Contacts
  • Events
  • Location
  • Microphone
  • Motion Fitness
  • Notifications
  • Reminders
  • Custom


PAPermissions requires iOS8+, compatible with both Swift 3 and Objective-C based projects

If you are looking for the Swift 2 version of it, please check out the legacy branch



CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Cocoa projects.

To integrate PAPermissions into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, specify it in your Podfile:

pod 'PAPermissions'

Then, run the following command:

$ pod install


Add this to Cartfile

github "ReactiveX/RxSwift" "3.0.0-beta.1"
$ carthage update

Manual Installation

Just copy the PAPermissions folder in your project

Run the Example

Clone the repo, cd into Example:

$ pod install

Or open the project (the blue icon) and copy the PAPermissions folder inside.


It can be used with a plain background color

Or with a background image

How it works

Create a new UIViewController, inherit from PAPermissionsViewController and write:

    let microphoneCheck = PAMicrophonePermissionsCheck()
    let cameraCheck = PACameraPermissionsCheck()

    override func viewDidLoad() {

        //Custom settings
        self.locationCheck.requestAlwaysAuthorization = true

        let permissions = [
              PAPermissionsItem.itemForType(.microphone, reason: "Required to hear your beautiful voice")!,
                      PAPermissionsItem.itemForType(.camera, reason: "Required to shoot awesome photos")!]

        let handlers = [
                        PAPermissionsType.microphone.rawValue: self.microphoneCheck,
        self.setupData(permissions, handlers: handlers)

        self.titleText = "My Awesome App"
        self.detailsText = "Please enable the following"

That’s it!

Anyway you no need to import everything, just remove the unnecessary "check" classes and keep the ones you want to use, you will find them in "Checks" folder.
