Deprecated Classes

UIPreviewAction

A preview action, or peek quick action, that is displayed below a peek when a user swipes the peek upward.

Deprecated
UIPreviewActionGroup

A group of one or more child quick actions, each an instance of the UIPreviewAction class.

Deprecated
UIAcceleration

An instance of the UIAcceleration class, called an acceleration event, represents immediate, three-dimensional acceleration data. To receive accelerometer events, register an application object as a delegate of the shared UIAccelerometer object, as described in UIAccelerometer.

Deprecated
UIAccelerometer

The UIAccelerometer class lets you register to receive acceleration-related data from the onboard hardware. As a device moves, its hardware reports linear acceleration changes along the primary axes in three-dimensional space. You can use this data to detect both the current orientation of the device (relative to the ground) and any instantaneous changes to that orientation. You might use instantaneous changes as input to a game or to initiate some action in your application.

Deprecated
UIActionSheet

Important: UIActionSheet is deprecated in iOS 8. (Note that UIActionSheetDelegate is also deprecated.) To create and manage action sheets in iOS 8 and later, instead use UIAlertController with a preferredStyle of UIAlertControllerStyleActionSheet.

Deprecated
UIAlertView

In apps that run in versions of iOS prior to iOS 8, use the UIAlertView class to display an alert message to the user. An alert view functions similar to but differs in appearance from an action sheet (an instance of UIActionSheet).

Deprecated
UIDocumentMenuViewController

A list of all the available document providers for a given file type and mode, in addition to custom menu items that you add.

Deprecated
UILocalNotification

Important:UILocalNotification is deprecated in iOS 10. Use UNNotificationRequest instead. A UILocalNotification object specifies a notification that an app can schedule for presentation at a specific date and time.

Deprecated
UIMutableUserNotificationAction

Important: UIMutableUserNotificationAction is deprecated in iOS 10. Use UNNotificationAction instead. A UIMutableUserNotificationAction object represents a modifiable version of the UIUserNotificationAction class.

Deprecated
UIMutableUserNotificationCategory

Important: UIMutableUserNotificationCategory is deprecated in iOS 10. Use UNNotificationCategory instead. A UIMutableUserNotificationCategory object encapsulates information about custom actions that your app can perform in response to a local or push notification. Use instances of this class to customize the actions included in an alert when space onscreen is constrained.

Deprecated
UIPopoverController

Important: UIPopoverController is deprecated in iOS 9. In iOS 9 and later, a popover is implemented as a UIViewController presentation. To create a popover, use an instance of UIPopoverPresentationController and specify the UIModalPresentationPopover style.

Deprecated
UISearchDisplayController

Important: UISearchDisplayController is deprecated in iOS 8. (Note that UISearchDisplayDelegate is also deprecated.) To manage the presentation of a search bar and display search results in iOS 8 and later, instead use UISearchController.

Deprecated
UIStoryboardPopoverSegue

The UIStoryboardPopoverSegue class defines a specific type of segue for presenting content in a popover. For popover segues, the destination view controller contains the content to be displayed in the popover. This class provides an additional popoverController property so that your custom code has access to the popover controller object. For example, you might want to store the popover controller elsewhere in your code so that you can dismiss the popover programmatically.

Deprecated
UIUserNotificationAction

Important: UIUserNotificationAction is deprecated in iOS 10. Use UNNotificationAction instead. A UIUserNotificationAction object represents a custom action that your app can perform in response to a remote or local notification.

Deprecated
UIUserNotificationCategory

Important:UIUserNotificationCategory is deprecated in iOS 10. Use UNNotificationCategory instead. A UIUserNotificationCategory object encapsulates information about custom actions that your app can perform in response to a local or push notification.

Deprecated
UIUserNotificationSettings

Important: UIUserNotificationSettings is deprecated in iOS 10. Use UNNotificationSettings instead. A UIUserNotificationSettings object encapsulates the types of notifications that can be displayed to the user by your app.

Deprecated

Deprecated Protocols

UIViewControllerPreviewing

A set of methods that define the interface for configuring a previewing view controller on devices that support 3D Touch.

UIViewControllerPreviewingDelegate

A set of methods used by the delegate to respond, with a preview view controller and a commit view controller, to the user pressing a view object on the screen of a device that supports 3D Touch.

UIAccelerometerDelegate

The UIAccelerometerDelegate protocol defines a single method for receiving acceleration-related data from the system. Implementation of this method is optional, but expected.

Deprecated
UIActionSheetDelegate

Important: UIActionSheetDelegate is deprecated in iOS 8. (Note that UIActionSheet is also deprecated.) To create and manage action sheets in iOS 8 and later, use UIAlertController.

UIAlertViewDelegate

For apps that run in versions of iOS prior to iOS 8, the UIAlertViewDelegate protocol defines the methods a delegate of a UIAlertView object should implement. The delegate implements the button actions and any other custom behavior. Some of the methods defined in this protocol are optional.

UIPopoverControllerDelegate

The UIPopoverControllerDelegate protocol defines the methods you can implement for the delegate of a UIPopoverController object. Popover controllers notify their delegate whenever user interactions would cause the dismissal of the popover and, in some cases, give the user a chance to prevent that dismissal.

UISearchDisplayDelegate

Important: UISearchDisplayDelegate is deprecated in iOS 8. (Note that UISearchDisplayController is also deprecated.) To manage the presentation of a search bar and display search results in iOS 8 and later, instead use UISearchControllerDelegate.
