XCode - Add AppDelegate.swift and SceneDelegate.swift to SwiftUI Application

by 13. March 2021 13:42

Step 1) Comment out (or remove) the @main code entry point (example below).


structiDineApp: App {

    @StateObject var order = Order()


    var body: some Scene {

        WindowGroup {






Step 2) Add entry shown below to info.plist











                <string>Default Configuration</string>







Step 3) Add AppDelegate.swift

import Foundation

import UIKit



classAppDelegate: UIResponder, UIApplicationDelegate {


    func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplication.LaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {

        // Override point for customization after application launch.




    // MARK: UISceneSession Lifecycle


    func application(_ application: UIApplication, configurationForConnecting connectingSceneSession: UISceneSession, options: UIScene.ConnectionOptions) -> UISceneConfiguration {

        // Called when a new scene session is being created.

        // Use this method to select a configuration to create the new scene with.

        return UISceneConfiguration(name: "Default Configuration", sessionRole: connectingSceneSession.role)



    func application(_ application: UIApplication, didDiscardSceneSessions sceneSessions: Set<UISceneSession>) {

        // Called when the user discards a scene session.

        // If any sessions were discarded while the application was not running, this will be called shortly after application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions.

        // Use this method to release any resources that were specific to the discarded scenes, as they will not return.




Step 4) Add SceneDelegate.swift

import UIKit

import SwiftUI


classSceneDelegate: UIResponder, UIWindowSceneDelegate {


    var window: UIWindow?


    func scene(_ scene: UIScene, willConnectTo session: UISceneSession, options connectionOptions: UIScene.ConnectionOptions) {

        // Use this method to optionally configure and attach the UIWindow `window` to the provided UIWindowScene `scene`.

        // If using a storyboard, the `window` property will automatically be initialized and attached to the scene.

        // This delegate does not imply the connecting scene or session are new (see `application:configurationForConnectingSceneSession` instead).


        // Create the SwiftUI view that provides the window contents.

        let contentView = ContentView()


        // Use a UIHostingController as window root view controller.

        if let windowScene = scene as? UIWindowScene {

            let window = UIWindow(windowScene: windowScene)

            window.rootViewController = UIHostingController(rootView: contentView)

            self.window = window





    funcsceneDidDisconnect(_ scene: UIScene) {

        // Called as the scene is being released by the system.

        // This occurs shortly after the scene enters the background, or when its session is discarded.

        // Release any resources associated with this scene that can be re-created the next time the scene connects.

        // The scene may re-connect later, as its session was not neccessarily discarded (see `application:didDiscardSceneSessions` instead).



    funcsceneDidBecomeActive(_ scene: UIScene) {

        // Called when the scene has moved from an inactive state to an active state.

        // Use this method to restart any tasks that were paused (or not yet started) when the scene was inactive.



    funcsceneWillResignActive(_ scene: UIScene) {

        // Called when the scene will move from an active state to an inactive state.

        // This may occur due to temporary interruptions (ex. an incoming phone call).



    funcsceneWillEnterForeground(_ scene: UIScene) {

        // Called as the scene transitions from the background to the foreground.

        // Use this method to undo the changes made on entering the background.



    funcsceneDidEnterBackground(_ scene: UIScene) {

        // Called as the scene transitions from the foreground to the background.

        // Use this method to save data, release shared resources, and store enough scene-specific state information

        // to restore the scene back to its current state.
