A bundle resource containing key-value pairs that grant the executable permission to use an app service or technology.
- iOS 2.0+
- macOS 10.7+
- tvOS 9.0+
- watchOS 2.0+
An entitlement is a single right granted to a particular app, tool, or other executable that gives it additional permissions beyond what it would ordinarily have. Some entitlements are represented by key-value pairs in the entitlements file in your project (a file with a
.entitlements file extension), and others are enabled for an App ID in your developer account.
If you configure capabilities using Xcode, Xcode manages the related entitlements so you don't need to edit the entitlements file or an App ID directly. Capabilities such as Apple Pay and push notifications, however, may require additional steps to configure in your developer account.
For detailed configuration steps, go to Add a capability to a target.
