Plivo iOS SDK
The Plivo iOS SDK v2 allows you to make outgoing and receive incoming calls in your iOS application. It supports Pushkit and Callkit, hence eliminating the need for persistent connections to receive incoming calls. The SDK currently supports iOS version 8 and above, including iOS 12. It supports both IPv4, IPv6 networks for performing inbound and outbound calls.
Incoming Voice Call
Outgoing Voice Call
To get started, below are some prerequisites
- Register for a Plivo account. You need a Plivo account to create endpoints and PHLO.
- Plivo Endpoint: An endpoint facilitates making and receiving calls from the iOS client. For more information on what an endpoint is and where it can be used, see the endpoint tutorial. Create an endpoint as required. You can automate the creation of endpoints if required using our REST API. Please refer to our API documentation for endpoint for more details.
- Xcode IDE: Download the latest version of Xcode IDE from https://developer.apple.com/xcode/ide/
- Apple Developers certificate: It is required for testing the app on an actual device. You do not need the certificate if you plan to test the application on a simulator.
- PHLO: Plivo High-Level Object (PHLO) is a collaborative way of building and deploying apps visually. You must create a PHLO and link it with your endpoint.
To create a VoIP enabled iOS app
- Install Cocoapods and add the PlivoVoiceKit framework.
- Use our iOS quickstart Application as a starting point to create your app.
- Refer to iOS SDK reference for more information on creating applications capable of making and receiving calls in your iOS app.
- To set up incoming calls with push notifications, see Setting up Push credentials.
- Manage Apple Push credentials on the console, see Manage Push Credentials.
- Use our Best practices guide to build the iOS app efficiently.
