The AWS SDK for iOS is a collection of software tools for the development of applications for Apple iOS-based devices like the iPhone, iPad and iPod. The AWS iOS software development kit (SDK) helps make Amazon Web Services (AWS) available to Apple devices.

The AWS SDK for iOS includes:

  • Java APIs (application programming interfaces) for connection to important AWS components such as Amazon S3, Amazon SQS, Amazon SNS and DynamoDB.
  • Class libraries that eliminate the need to deal with lower-level code for inner workings like networking redundancy and error checking.
  • Code samples with common usage examples to build applications.
  • Documentation and reference material for the workings of the AWS SDK for iOS API.

The minimum requirements for the AWS SDK for iOS are version 4 of Apple’s Xcode integrated development environment (IDE) and iOS version 4.3 or greater. Access to the SDK environment requires an AWS account and access keys.
