As of iOS 10, Apple requires the additon of the NSCameraUsageDescription and NSMicrophoneUsageDescription strings to the info.plist of your application. Example:

<string>To Take Photos and Video</string>
<string>To Record Audio With Video</string>

Getting Started:

If you install SwiftyCam from Cocoapods, be sure to import the module into your View Controller:

import LittleOwl

LittleOwl is a drop-in convenience framework. To create a Camera instance, just add this:

let cameraController = CameraViewController(type: .video(10))
cameraController.didSelectVideo = { url in
    cameraController.dismiss(animated: true, completion: nil)


let cameraController = CameraViewController(type: .photo)
cameraController.didSelectPhoto = { image in
    cameraController.dismiss(animated: true, completion: nil)

Image 2

That is all that is required to setup the AVSession for photo and video capture. LittleOwl will prompt the user for permission to use the camera/microphone, and configure both the device inputs and outputs.
