NetworkReachabilityManager

open class NetworkReachabilityManager

The NetworkReachabilityManager class listens for reachability changes of hosts and addresses for both cellular and WiFi network interfaces.

Reachability can be used to determine background information about why a network operation failed, or to retry network requests when a connection is established. It should not be used to prevent a user from initiating a network request, as it’s possible that an initial request may be required to establish reachability.

  • Defines the various states of network reachability.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public enum NetworkReachabilityStatus
  • A closure executed when the network reachability status changes. The closure takes a single argument: the network reachability status.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public typealias Listener = (NetworkReachabilityStatus) -> Void
  • Default NetworkReachabilityManager for the zero address and a listenerQueue of .main.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public static let `default`: NetworkReachabilityManager?
  • Whether the network is currently reachable.

    Declaration

    Swift

    open var isReachable: Bool { get }
  • Whether the network is currently reachable over the cellular interface.

    Note

    Using this property to decide whether to make a high or low bandwidth request is not recommended. Instead, set the allowsCellularAccess on any URLRequests being issued.

    Declaration

    Swift

    open var isReachableOnCellular: Bool { get }
  • Whether the network is currently reachable over Ethernet or WiFi interface.

    Declaration

    Swift

    open var isReachableOnEthernetOrWiFi: Bool { get }
  • DispatchQueue on which reachability will update.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public let reachabilityQueue: DispatchQueue
  • Flags of the current reachability type, if any.

    Declaration

    Swift

    open var flags: SCNetworkReachabilityFlags? { get }
  • The current network reachability status.

    Declaration

    Swift

    open var status: NetworkReachabilityStatus { get }
  • Creates an instance with the specified host.

    Note

    The host value must not contain a scheme, just the hostname.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public convenience init?(host: String)

    Parameters

    host

    Host used to evaluate network reachability. Must not include the scheme (e.g. https).

  • Creates an instance that monitors the address 0.0.0.0.

    Reachability treats the 0.0.0.0 address as a special token that causes it to monitor the general routing status of the device, both IPv4 and IPv6.

    Declaration

    Swift

    public convenience init?()
  • Starts listening for changes in network reachability status.

    Note

    Stops and removes any existing listener.

    Declaration

    Swift

    @discardableResult
    open func startListening(onQueue queue: DispatchQueue = .main,
                             onUpdatePerforming listener: @escaping Listener) -> Bool

    Parameters

    queue

    DispatchQueue on which to call the listener closure. .main by default.

    listener

    Listener closure called when reachability changes.

    Return Value

    true if listening was started successfully, false otherwise.

  • Stops listening for changes in network reachability status.

    Declaration

    Swift

    open func stopListening()
