A string containing information that your app uses to identify the user. You might can a person handle from an email address, phone number, or account name associated with the user.
The name of the user, specified as a set of name components.
The string you display for the user’s name.
An image of the person.
The identifier associated with the user's
CNContactobject. Specify a value for this parameter when the user has a corresponding entry in the Contacts database.
A custom string that you can use to identify people in your app.
An array of
INPersonobjects containing alternate ways of identifying the user.
The contact information to surface in interactions involving the user. Use this property to identify a user by their social media account name or instant messaging address, instead of by their actual name.
An initialized person object or
nil if the object could not be created.
Use this method when you want to create person objects with additional information such as email addresses or phone numbers. This method also lets you suggest how you want to identify the person when donating interactions to the system. For example, you might ask the system to identify the user by their social media account name instead of by their actual name.
Always specify as much information as possible about the user. This method makes copies of the
aliases parameters instead of keeping the originals.
