Mapbox iOS SDK

The Mapbox iOS SDK is an open-source framework for embedding interactive map views with scalable, customizable vector maps into Cocoa Touch applications on iOS 7.0 and above using Objective-C, Swift, or Interface Builder. It takes stylesheets that conform to the Mapbox Style Specification, applies them to vector tiles that conform to the Mapbox Vector Tile Specification, and renders them using OpenGL.

Changes in version 3.4.0

  • Added runtime styling API for iOS (#5727)

  • The text-pitch-alignment property is now supported in stylesheets for improved street label legibility on a tilted map. (#5288)
