Instance Method

Creates a connection to another iOS device.

Parameters

Discussion

When your application is acting as a client, it calls this method to connect to an available peer it discovered. When your application calls this method, a request is transmitted to the remote peer, who chooses whether to accept or reject the connection request.

If the connection to the remote peer is successful, the delegate’s session(_:peer:didChange:) method is called for each peer it successfully connected to. If the connection fails or your application cancels the connection attempt, the session calls the delegate’s session(_:connectionWithPeerFailed:withError:) method.
