ABPeople class (whose instances are known as people-picker navigation controllers) implements a view controller that manages a set of views that allow the user to select a contact or one of its contact-information items from an address book.
- iOS 2.0–9.0Deprecated
In iOS 8 and later bringing up a people-picker navigtion controller does not require the app to have access to a user’s contacts, and the user will not be prompted to grant access. If the app does not itself have access to the user’s contacts, a temporary copy of the contact selected by the user will be returned to the app.
See PeoplePicker: Picking a Person or Property for a sample project illustrating the use of a people-picker navigation controller.
ABPeople class does not support subclassing.
