Adding an Existing Framework to a Project

Add a framework bundle to a project in order to incorporate the framework’s features into your product.

To add an existing framework to a project
  1. In the project navigator, select the project or group within a project to which you want to add the framework.

  2. Choose File > Add Files to “<App_Name>”.

  3. Select the framework bundle, and click Add.

The frameworks you add this way are third-party-built bundles containing the framework’s object code and runtime resources. See related articles for information about linking to a framework without adding it to the project.

After you add the framework, Xcode configures the targets in your project to link them to the framework just added.
