AWS SDK for Swift (Developer Preview)

Develop and deploy applications with the AWS SDK for Swift. The SDK makes it easy to call AWS services using idiomatic Swifty APIs.

How it works

The AWS SDK for Swift simplifies the use of AWS services by providing a set of libraries that are consistent and familiar for Swift developers. All AWS SDKs support API lifecycle considerations such as credential management, retries, data marshaling, and serialization.

How It Works - AWS SDK for Swift

Key features

Multi-platform Support

The AWS SDK for Swift is written with multi-platform support in mind. It supports iOS, macOS, and Linux environments today, with support for other Swift-supported platforms coming in future releases. 

Familiar Swift Experience

The AWS SDK for Swift takes advantage of modern Swift language features such as async/await, inferred types, and others. The SDK also integrates with the popular Swift libraries such as Swift Log and Swift Collections, and uses Swift Package Manager (SPM) for compiling and distribution.


The AWS SDK for Swift has a modular architecture with a separate package published for each service. This allows you to reduce application bundle size and improve application performance by only importing the packages your application requires.
